Company Profile

The Penobscot Company, Inc. had its roots in the year 1970, beginning a new decade. Simpler times, perhaps; but no less challenging for the construction industry, as not long afterward it experienced its first recession of the mid '70s.

At that time the company's primary focus was on residential construction in traditional New England communities. Historic restoration was a large part of the business, and we acquired an appreciation for the craftsmanship of the 19th century as we followed in the footsteps of the period artisans.

In the early '90s The Penobscot Company expanded its mission, and sought new challenges and opportunities to grow the business. Thus, commercial projects began appearing in our portfolio, with project delivery methods that include traditional Design-Bid-Build; Design-Build; and Construction Management. As you scan our site you will note that the various undertakings are very diverse from one another. We were excited to venture into new areas of the State, and to be a part of a team of professionals delivering projects which will be a part of the community for generations to come.

Now in our 44th year, The Penobscot Company still has a strong mission, and continues to seek challenging opportunities and projects that combine experience, talent, and creativity. The real challenge facing us in this decade will be to deliver better products, efficiently, for less cost and overhead. We pride ourselves for constructing each project with value added.

Throughout its history The Penobscot Company's mission has been committed to building a presence, one project at a time, through positive relationships with clients, design professionals, and associated trade contractors. Key to that mission is a business philosophy of Honesty, Safety, and Integrity. We proudly stand behind every job we build.
