"A job is never done until it is perfect." 


This was the motto of our company's founder, Arch Murphy, pictured left, and is a creed that we, as an organization live by still to this day. Arch Murphy founded, what was originally A. Murphy Construction Co, in 1920. Across his lifetime, he grew the company to operate across several states and oversaw several continuous contracts with Wheeling Steel Company and Koppers Company. He served as President of the company for over 40 years. Jim Murphy, son of Arch Murphy led the company for many years after his father stepped down. The company remained in his hands until 2001 when other members of the Murphy Family, Alan McLaughlin and Jeff Baker took the lead.


Today, A. Murphy Construction is organized under a new name, Murphy Consolidated Industries and has a new leader at the helm. Mark Secrist bought the company from the Murphy family after working for the company for several years. Mark works tirelessly to uphold the values that got the company this far while continuing to move the company forward in the business climate of today. We are proud to have a legacy of excellence behind us and the wonderful opportunities of growth and progress today and in the years to come.
