Devcon's History and Organization

With the effectiveness of its construction capabilities, Devcon Construction Inc. meets the demanding needs of its clients with expeditious and reliable service. With an emphasis on quality projects, Devcon has become one of the most active and respected construction firms in the Bay Area, and has been instrumental in the rapid growth of Silicon Valley.

Devcon's extensive list of projects has led to the growth of its employee base at every level. The company's administrative/office staff has increased from 10 in 1976 to over 135 in 2000. A field staff of 20 in 1976 has grown to over 400, and a staff of only two field superintendents upon the company's inception has now grown to over 75.

Founded in May 1976, the company generated sales in excess of $6 million by December of that same year. In the following years, activity climbed steadily to $455 Million in 2004, $525 Million in 2005, $545 Million in 2006, and $775 Million in 2007. Our sales volume for 2008 was approximately $910 Million. In its thirty three year history, the company has built over thirty million square feet of office, commercial and industrial space throughout Northern California.
