The founder of our company, Willie Malphus, opened the doors of Malphus and Son General Contractors, Inc. in 1969. Prior to that, he worked as a subcontractor specializing in masonry and carpentry for small houses and large warehouses. He was a people-person who believed in fairness and quality workmanship. By 1972, those qualities started to get our company noticed by homeowners and small real estate investors. Our business continued to grow, so we added a dedicated commercial construction division in 1977. By 1978, we started working on notable Tampa buildings and for high-end real estate developers.
Eventually, we were noticed by the owners of the Historic Los Novedades Building on 15th Street and 7th Avenue in Ybor City. This building was built in 1890 and has a Historic Marker outside declaring that it is the oldest restaurant in Tampa. And the owners chose us to perform the renovation after it was devastated by fire because they believed we could bring it back to its former glory. Working on building that's such a notable part of Tampa's history and doing such a great job helped us continue to gain attention as a quality General Contractor. And it helped Malphus and Son grow into a sought-after renovation specialist for local developers that owned single-family homes, apartment complexes, and more.
At Malphus and Son, we're always trying to build upon the foundation that was set for us a generation ago.
