About Us

Getting the most value for your construction dollar goes beyond building . . . to the people, processes and procedures that can give you a maximum return on your investment.

With more than 750 years of combined experience, we've honed our processes and become the construction experts you can count on to make your project a success every time. It all comes down to our self-performed general contracting and systematic approach. We work one-on-one in collaboration with our clients to make informed decisions and ensure we deliver your desired end result.

We perform all our own site surveying, site utility installation, process equipment installation, millwright work, concrete, masonry, steel erection and carpentry work. This makes us capable of providing a complete range of construction services for even the most complex of projects. By choosing a self-performing contractor like Grae-Con, you get total quality management, but you won't have to worry about quality with us. It's our top priority to provide the safe, quality service you expect on a daily basis.

As a family-owned business, in its fourth generation of leadership under the Gribben family, Grae-Con prides itself in building and developing the places in which people worship, work, learn and play throughout upper and mid Ohio Valley and beyond. We complete over 50 million dollars worth of industrial, commercial and institutional construction work annually throughout the Great Lakes Region in five states.

A History of Grae-Con

The Gribben family has practiced general building construction since the 1920’s when George Gribben, Sr. worked as a superintendent for a commercial/residential contractor. In 1957, George’s son, Robert A. Gribben, Sr. established Robert A Gribben Construction. His business became a major industrial and commercial contractor in the Ohio Valley until 1986, when operations ceased in Ohio and moved to a thriving Southern Florida market, ushering in the establishment of Grae-Con.

Grae-Con was established in 1987 by Robert A. Gribben, Jr. Robert had been with his father’s company since 1974, and established Grae-Con under modest beginnings, with most of the management staff from Robert A Gribben Construction. Grae-Con is now one of largest contractors in the Ohio Valley, completing work for clients such as AEP, First Energy, Bechtel, Trinity Health Systems, DuPont, and Severstal Steel.
