Celebrating 90 Years
As we celebrate our 90th anniversary, we remember our humble beginnings along with WHY we do what we do. It goes beyond simply loving our work; we serve a higher purpose.
In 1922, Charles H. Shook took a leap of faith by quitting an architectural firm in order to bid as a contractor on their General Motors project involving the design of the Frigidaire Plant in Moraine in Ohio. After several years getting additional construction experience under his belt, Mr. Shook officially started Chas. H. Shook, Inc. in December 1926 with the modest sum of $500 in working capital. The rest–as they say–is history.
