Who We Are
Triangle Construction has a rich history full of integrity, customer commitment, and employee loyalty. We’re committed to serving Greenville as a reliable builder. Triangle was founded in 1947 by John Pellett, Jr., Heyward Morgan, and Nelson Tracy at the center of Greenville, in the burgeoning Upstate of South Carolina. The name “Triangle” came about because the three founding men came together to create a cohesive triangle which combined ingenuity, hard work, and dedication. Since that time, Triangle has been building a solid reputation on efficient, quality construction for 69 years.
Triangle Construction is the most qualified builder because of the people we hire, in the community we serve. We were founded at the same location we currently occupy, and the company is 100% employee owned by people who live in the Upstate of South Carolina. We have long standing, respected relationships with sub-contractors and suppliers in this region, which contributes to better pricing and value for our clients. We carefully vet each of the subcontractors we use to ensure that our standard of quality is upheld throughout each division of construction.
An additional reason to consider Triangle is our extensive experience. The majority of our employees have been with Triangle for more than 25 years. The incredible team we have assembled today embody the “Triangle way” by displaying great integrity, commitment, and loyalty in everything that they do. A job worth doing is always worth doing the right way, the first time. Our construction expertise and versatility is reflected in industrial plants, higher education facilities, religious facilities, offices, hospitals, restaurants, apartment buildings, and shopping centers.
Probably the most important aspect of Triangle is the personal experience that you will have with us, as a General Contractor. We feel that our clients often call on us for repeat business simply because of this fact. While Triangle has built a solid, well-run company with lots of moving parts – our commitment to a personal experience has not changed. That trait remains, irrespective of our growth, one of our most important goals. Clients may find themselves shuffled back and forth within the red tape and bureaucracy of larger General Contractors, while Triangle gives each of our clients a single point of contact. Each of our projects, regardless of its size, receives the individual attention it requires to insure cost-effective, economical construction. And because time is money, Triangle pays careful attention to exacting specifications and schedules to finish your job correctly, and on time.
Whatever your construction needs, let Triangle Construction Company show you why it is one of the foremost builders in the Southeast.
Integrity. Commitment. Loyalty.
