Triangle Construction, a general contractor that specializes in multiple types of construction, is celebrating its 70th anniversary. Since 1947, the Greenville-based company has been an integral part of helping shape the Upstate and is responsible for some of the area’s best known buildings, including the original Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport and the Poinsett Club. This has continued with Triangle’s involvement with the Peace Center’s renovations and construction of Furman University’s Furman Hall and Duke Library, along with other higher education facilities in the Upstate. The company’s construction expertise and versatility is reflected in the variety of its projects: industrial plants, higher education facilities, religious facilities, offices, hospitals, restaurants, apartment buildings, shopping centers, and more.

“For 70 years, Triangle Construction has provided exceptional construction services, and we are committed to carrying the company’s strong reputation forward,” said Thomas Baer, president of Triangle Construction. “We are very proud to reach this milestone and attribute this accomplishment to the hard work and dedication of our associates over the years.”

Triangle Construction was founded by John Pellett, Jr., Heyward Morgan, and Nelson Tracy. The three college classmates came together to start “Triangle,” which represents ingenuity, hard work, and dedication. The employee-owned company has an average tenure of more than 25 years and has a rich history of integrity, commitment and loyalty.

Triangle leadership and employees credit the company’s longevity and success to its strong reputation of delivering quality work, valued family-oriented culture, and its strong ties to the community. The company recently celebrated the anniversary with employees, customers and friends at Triangle’s Laurens Road office, which was built in 1955.
