One Guy and his Pickup Truck

How it all Began…

Our story begins as some of the best entrepreneur stories of our day, or maybe like a good country song. It all started with one guy, a pick-up truck and an incredible level of drive. For a handful of years, James Shoffner was building houses and performing small tasks inside manufacturing plants. As he built a respectable reputation, he was able to move on to bigger and greater things. After only a few years, he officially incorporated his business in 1992. J. Shoffner General Contractor, Inc. has been evolving and growing ever since.
