Taylor Celebrates 30th Anniversary

Local Contractor Has Been Building On Three Decades of Client Satisfaction

TAYLOR is celebrating 30 years of client satisfaction. Born on the foundation of Integrity, Ingenuity, and Dependability, there is no such thing as a typical TAYLOR client over the past three decades, but every client has shared one thing in common; satisfaction in what they build together.

“Our customers tend to be experienced buyers of construction services. The majority recognize that price is just a piece of the equation. They understand the value we have to offer, and have been building on that for over three decades,” said TAYLOR Co-Founder/CEO, Jim Taylor. “Time is very critical in all of our projects, and on top of that, it is the quality that goes into it. Clients can’t afford to have people come back for repairs. Things have to be done right the first time.”

Established as R-J Taylor, General Contractors in 1984, Co-Founder Richard Taylor saw opportunity in design build where he could be part of a team, helping projects move along from concept through design into construction implementation. Growing the business on word of mouth, R-J Taylor worked for small to medium-sized regional businesses that didn’t have their own internal construction department.

In the 90’s R-J Taylor earned the attention of national firms, expanding their geographic reach with the completion of manufacturing and distribution plants in Michigan, Massachusetts, California, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. As R-J Taylor grew, their reputation grew, seeing the opportunity to expand into multi-family housing, institutional work for non-profits, healthcare, and educational projects.

Today, re-branded as TAYLOR – The Builders, this ever-evolving general contractor continues to expand products and services to better meet the needs of their sophisticated customers. Led by Co-Founder/CEO Jim Taylor, and President, Karl Schuler, the second-generation contractors have compiled over three decades of experience in the design, construction, and successful completion of literally hundreds of projects – large and small – , having the resources to deliver enhanced execution on all phases of your projects from the ground up.

Hope and Elmwood Avenues in the City of Rochester; and Lakeside Medical Suites, recently broke ground for two 23,000-square-foot Class A medical office buildings in Canandaigua, NY.
