The Top 100 Privately Held North Carolina Companies list for 2016 has been published by Business North Carolina Magazine, and several local homebuilders and construction companies made the cut.
The list, compiled by Grant Thornton LLP, includes Eastwood Homes – for a fourth consecutive time.
Eastwood Homes holds the No. 41 spot, which is a significant gain over their 2014 ranking of 52.
Other industry companies in the Mecklenburg County area on the list this year include: National Gypsum Co. at number 3; Pike Corp. at number 6; Carolina Tractor and Equipment Co. at number 9; SteelFab Inc. at number 16; Crescent Communities LLC at number 20; and Rodgers Builders Inc. at number 30.
This is the second year for Eastwood Homes to appear in the top 50. Eastwood Homes was founded by Joseph K. Stewart in 1977. Over the past 39 years, the company has celebrated continuous expansion throughout the Carolinas. In addition to their first and largest division in Charlotte, the company operates in Raleigh and the Triad-area of North Carolina, Charleston and Greenville, South Carolina, and Richmond, Virginia. The company anticipates further growth both within existing divisions and to new regions with both Joe and his son and business partner Clark at the helm.
Alongside expansion, Eastwood Homes remains committed to their Mission Statement – “Driven by integrity and our core values, we build homes of exceptional value and outstanding craftsmanship while delivering unparalleled customer service.”
Eastwood Homes has been recognized and has achieved numerous accomplishments in the past several years. Most recently, Eastwood Homes celebrated closing their 15,000th home since the company opened in 1977. Additionally, the company has previously been named Builder of the Year by the Charlotte Homebuilder’s Association and received a gold award for Best Community Outreach for their partnership with local Levine Children’s Hospital, according to a press release from the company.
Clark Stewart commented on the recent recognition of Eastwood Homes, “It’s a privilege to see Eastwood Homes among the ranks of such highly respected North Carolina businesses, especially with many of the featured companies specializing in the construction industry. This not only demonstrates our continuous growth in dedication for excellence, but speaks to the rebound of the construction sector as a whole. It’s great to see this resurgence in both residential and commercial construction. Joe and I are very fortunate to have such a dedicated team helping to continue to grow our footprint in the Southeast.”
