A Proud Past
Our founder and past president, Jim Pilkington, cannot remember a time when he wasn’t involved in the construction industry. He started out in his native Longmont, Colorado, as a framing subcontractor and remodeling contractor before moving to Casper, Wyoming, in 1972. He spent a decade in Casper where he worked as a general contractor and met his former wife, Cathy.
In 1985, Jim and Cathy moved to Yuma to start Pilkington Construction. His, brother Chris, soon joining the company. In 2007 Jim and Cathy decided it was to move on to other ventures and in no way wanted this construction company to diminish in any fashion. It was then that Leo and his wife Tammy were approached by Jim and Cathy to look at the possibility of taking over this very successful construction company.
Leo and Tammy have owned and operated their own construction company since 1980 in Longmont, Colorado specializing in commercial and residential construction. With the down turn in construction in the Longmont area and Leo and Tammy’s two children off to college, they felt this would be a good opportunity to move back to the state where Tammy was born. With this unanimous decision between the Pilkington’s the transition was set into place to move the company to Pilkington Commercial Co., Inc. with Tammy as President/CEO, Leo as Vice-President/COO/Secretary and Chris as Vice-President/Treasurer.
As years go on and new adventures begin, Clint Harrington has become the new owner of Pilkington Construction. With Chris Pilkington still by his side, Clint will continue on the Pilkington legacy.
With over 20 employees the Pilkington family continues to grow.
It is impossible to succeed in our area without repeat business. Our customers come back time and again for one simple reason — the uncompromising quality of our work. We hire only the best subcontractors and make sure things are done right the first time.
The Personal Touch
Although construction is our trade, we consider ourselves communicatorsby profession. The biggest mistake many builders make is notcommunicating regularly and openly with their customers. Being up frontabout what is going right — or what is going wrong — can solve mostproblems before they happen. Our commitment is to build each relationship with respect, trust and honestly. This sets us apart from many builders and is one big reason why we have served so many fine organizations and companies. We are proud of our customers, our workers and our success. But most of all, we are proud of the Pilkington name and will never do anything to jeopardize our reputation.
