After a century of unwavering commitment to customer focus, McCrory maintains an exceptionally high level of repeat business — at more than 90 percent.
Central to his role is developing core client relationships in strategic Markets --a key part of the company's business development strategy. Over the last decade, McCrory has significantly increased its already impressive list of private and public sector clients, many with ongoing building programs. During this period of unprecedented growth, McCrory has expanded its services, market sectors and geographic presence.
