Kinsley Construction Inc. remains the midstate’s largest general contractor by a wide margin, according to a new national list compiled by trade publication Engineering News-Record, or ENR.
The York Township-based company came in at No. 143 in the country on the magazine’s latest top 400 contractors list, up from No. 172 on last year’s list. The magazine ranks firms based on contracting revenue.
Kinsley reported $563.9 million in revenue last year, an increase from $410.7 million in 2015, according to ENR figures.
Kinsley was one of many construction firms to report growth as the market was full with activity last year. The top 400 companies, according to ENR, generated a record $366.4 billion in contracting revenue, an increase from $344.1 billion in 2015.
The next highest midstate company on the top 400 list was Lancaster-based Wohlsen Construction Co. at No. 236. That was down from No. 223 last year. The company reported $327.8 million in revenue, up from $313.2 million in 2015.
Harrisburg-based Quandel Enterprises Inc. slid to No. 311 from No. 257 with $244.7 million in revenue, a decrease from $269.7 million in 2015, according to ENR.
Harrisburg-based Alexander Building Construction Co.’s parent company, Butz Enterprises Inc., which is headquartered in Allentown, came in at No. 326 with $233.1 million in revenue, an increase from $205.4 million in 2015.
Manchester Township-based Wagman Inc. finished with $205 million last year, which earned the company a spot at No. 352. Wagman was not included in last year’s ENR list.
The longtime leading contractor on the ENR list, California-based Bechtel, which has been No. 1 for 19 straight years, finished with nearly $24.3 billion last year.
More than 20 percent of the companies on the list cracked $1 billion in revenue last year.
