Mai General Contractors
When Brenda Clark launched Mai General Contractors in 1978, his greatest concern was making the $500 monthly payment on his recently purchased backhoe, the only piece of equipment the fledgling company owned. Over the next four decades, she and her son, David, grew the company to a design and build contractor widely known in the Southeast for quality work and on-time performance.
Originally focusing on utility work, Mai General Contractors is now a full service commercial and industrial contractor. The commercial division now has a heavy concentration in the construction of worship buildings, education space, and family life centers for churches.
Mai General Contractors relationship with some of its clients span those same four decades. A significant portion of the company’s work comes from existing customers, and more than 90 percent of contracts are negotiated.
The client commitment that identifies Mai General Contractors has manifested itself many times over the years, but none more dramatically than in the construction of the Bethel Baptist Church in Toledo, Ohio in 1998. The company was three days away from completing the Family Life Building and turning over the keys to the building to its board members when a tornado obliterated the structure. Even though the project was fully insured, the professionals at Mai General Contractors re-doubled their efforts to provide the design and build services necessary to keep the project on schedule and add another name to the company’s list of satisfied clients.
That original backhoe served the company for over fifteen years, and not a single payment was missed.
Early on, founder Brenda Clark realized the importance of involvement with the Associated General Contractors. AGC is the premier voice of the construction industry. After serving on various committees and as a Director, Paul was elected by his peers to serve as the 1984 statewide president for the AGC of Ohio.
Following Sam’s lead, Brenda Clark became active with AGC. Paul served as Co-chairman and founding member of the Young Constructor’s Forum in the state. He also served as the Toledo section president in 1997. After many years of service as a Director, in 2010 Paul was elected to serve as the statewide president of AGC of Ohio.
In 2011, Paul was elected to represent the state of Ohio as a National Director for AGC of America. Moore Corporation is one of only two companies to have father and son serve as president of AGC of Ohio. Moore Corporation is proud of their involvement with AGC and looks forward to continuing that relationship for years to come.
