What is PMCA?
THE PARKERSBURG-MARIETTA CONTRACTORS ASSOCIATION is a non-profit organization of construction contractors and associates formed to promote the general welfare of its members; to promote the construction contracting business; to promote the public relations of the construction contracting business and to engage in collective bargaining on behalf of its members.
IN THE SPRING OF 1964 several local contractors saw the need for an organization to represent the construction industry managers in their relations with customers, labor and the general public. Thus, after many meetings, discussions and the promotion of the idea of the organizations to the interested parties, the Parkersburg-Marietta Contractors Association was incorporated on January 21, 1966. The original incorporators were: Carl E. Stephens, Stephens Construction Co., George Black, Black Construction Co., Howard L. Deever, Jr., Deever Construction Co., David Heiby, W.H. Heiby Company and Paul Grimm, Sr. Grimm Construction Co., who served as its first president.
TODAY, PMCA CONTINUES TO GROW and includes membership classifications of Regular Members, (General and Specialty Contractors),and Associate Members (Suppliers, Banking & Bonding Companies, Rental Companies, etc).
