In 2005, the United States was in the middle of a recession and businesses were failing, but T. Howard Suitt had an idea of how to succeed with a new venture. Recently retired from his construction company SUITT Construction, Mr. Suitt developed a plan to back some of his former SUITT associates and return to the construction industry. THS Constructors, Inc. was formed and became owned by its employees with the adopted philosophy of “delivering cost effective outcomes by utilizing relationships with a wide range of designer skills and trade contractors.”
After graduating from The Citadel, Howard Suitt began his career as a Project and Division Manager with Daniel Construction. In 1968, he founded SUITT Construction Company and grew it to an annual revenue of over $250 Million by the mid-1990’s with offices throughout the Southeast. In 1996, he sold SUITT to BE&K Building Group and eventually retired as Chairman in the early 2000’s.
Retirement life was not for Mr. Suitt, and consequently THS Constructors, Inc. was created. THS Constructors is a $60 Million industrial general contractor with project experience ranging from Virginia to Florida. THS provides design-build basis where they assume the responsibility for the facility design and construction while partnering with architects and engineers in a “team concept.”
Since 2005, THS Constructors has grown over 900% in sales and revenues. They currently have a full time staff of 30 people with offices in Greenville and Charleston, SC. THS was named one of the fastest growing companies the last two years by two different publications, and most recently placed 9th in the Best Places to Work in South Carolina by SC Biz News and the South Carolina Chamber of Commerce.
“Throughout the last 15 years, our mission has been clear – to be a relationship-focused construction services company committed to our clients, partners, suppliers and stockholders. Without each of their trust, we would not have reached this milestone. We look forward to the next 15 years of continued growth and success.” said Howard Suitt, Founder & Chairman.
