Associated General Contractors of America

The vision of the Associated General Contractors (AGC) of America is “to promote a better industry for the professionals who build America’s future.” Deciding to become a member of AGC was simple. We at Carolina Services Inc. pride ourselves on offering high quality construction solutions that are on time and within budget. AGC helps us do so. The Associated General Contractors of America promote the skill, integrity and responsibility of Carolina Services, and all those who build America.

So what exactly does it mean to be a member of the Associated General Contractors of America? First, you’ll need to understand a little more about AGC.

AGC is the leading association for the construction industry, and that’s not an easy feat. In such a large industry, it’s nice to have a group on our side. The Associated General Contractors of America works to satisfy our needs and concerns, which inevitably improves the quality of construction and protects the public interest. This is done through a wide range of services, in partnership with AGC’s nationwide network of 95 chartered chapters.

Now here’s a fun fact about the Associated General Contractors of America. Back in 1918, President Woodrow Wilson recognized the national importance of the construction industry. He desired a partner with which the government could discuss and plan for the nation’s advancement. That mission has now been fulfilled for more than 90 years.

So how does AGC work? It represents approximately 30,000 leading firms in the industry. This includes general contractors, speciality contractors, service providers and suppliers. We are talking about a full service national trade association with a national network of exceptional chapters! I guess it gets us a little excited. One reason is because members of the Associated General Contractors of America play a powerful role in sustaining economic growth. Another is that members produce structures that add to productivity and the nation’s quality of life. This makes AGC truly the “voice and choice” of the construction industry, and makes Carolina Services Inc. a proud member.
