About SMJ Construction

About the SMJ teamIn 1976, SMJ Contracting, Inc. began as a small construction company focused on meeting the needs of homeowners in Pottstown and local insurance companies.

Over the past 40 years, SMJ Contracting, Inc. has evolved into a commercial general contracting firm serving the tri-state area. Our client base has expanded to include all facets of the commercial sector. In August of 1997, Stanley A, Fonder joined the company and a re-building phase began by taking SMJ Contracting, Inc. into larger and more complex projects. In January of 1998, Mr. Fonder began the process of purchasing the firm and a growth period ensued. The new growth included private and public sector projects, i.e., retail/commercial, schools, colleges, post offices, county detention centers, as well as personnel changes. As a result, fifty percent of SMJ Contracting, Inc.’s work is done for repeat customers (clients) who appreciate our dedication and team approach.

Surety bonding also expanded over the same period. SMJ Contracting, Inc. has been pleased with Liberty Mutual Insurance, formerly Safeco Insurance, and their ability to add value to a business partnership. Consistent earnings growth and avoiding any long or short term debt, has enabled SMJ Contracting, Inc. to grow surety bonding aggregates and ensure excess bonding capacity.
