Metcon Inc., Pembroke, N.C.
At the age of 23, after growing up in a family construction supply business in the Native American community of Pembroke, N.C., Aaron Thomas started his own contracting firm, Metcon Inc. The firm started out building panelized metal-framed housing for the Lumbee Indian Tribe of North Carolina, of which Thomas is an enrolled member. Now a commercial builder, the firm he founded 14 years ago has grown considerably, with 2013 revenue topping $51 million. Last year, Metcon completed the Sandy Grove Middle School near Lumber Bridge, N.C., a net-zero, LEED-Platinum-rated school project that recently won ENR’s Best of the Best award for K-12 schools. Also in 2013, the U.S. Dept. of Commerce’s Minority Business Development Agency recognized Metcon as its 2013 Minority Construction Firm of the Year.
