Taylor Celebrates 35th Anniversary

Local Contractor Building Over Three Decades of Client Satisfaction

TAYLOR, a leading regional general contractor, believes success is measured in decades. Over thirty-five years of knowledge, experience and satisfied clients are behind every new project built. TAYLOR has evolved with its clients, growing and changing to meet their needs.

“Customers 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.”

“Our longevity further demonstrates the exceptional staff of an ever-evolving general contractor,” said TAYLOR Partner/President, Karl Schuler. “Focusing on expanding products and services to better meet the needs of our sophisticated clients—we maintain long-term relationships and high satisfaction ratings.”

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

In the 90’s R-J Taylor earned the attention of national firms, expanding their project-reach into Michigan, Massachusetts, California, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. As R-J Taylor grew, reputation allowed them to add multifamily housing, institutional work for non-profits, healthcare, and educational projects to its portfolio.

Today, ranked #3 on the list of Rochester’s fastest growing companies in the annual Top 100 program, TAYLOR is forging new links for the future, combining tomorrow’s technology with strengths from the past. An ever-evolving general contractor, TAYLOR focuses on expanding products and services to better meet the needs of their sophisticated clients—while maintaining long-term relationships and high satisfaction ratings. Led by Co-Founder/CEO Jim Taylor, and Partner/President, Karl Schuler, the second-generation contractors bring more than 35 years of experience to the table.
