Company History


Thomas P. Carney, Sr. served his country as a U.S. Marine in the 4th Division during World War II.  Upon his return from active duty overseas, he and his wife, Teresa M. Carney, founded their own construction company in 1949, relying on his pre-war experience as a carpenter.  Mr. Carney built his company’s reputation on his word and a hand shake and became known by Owners, Architects and Contractors in the industry as a man of integrity. 

Thomas & Teresa built the business while raising eight children.  Their sons began their careers as laborers, and have worked their way through every level of project management, building on their engineering degrees, to successfully own and grow TPC into the General Contractor it is today.  Thomas & Teresa’s honesty and true-to-oneself attitude is the foundation of the successes enjoyed over Thomas P. Carney, Inc.’s 62+ year history.
