About

The construction industry is constantly changing, with rapid advancements in engineering, technology, new energy sources, and a stronger focus on the environment. J.M. Thompson Company’s longevity is evidence of our ability to change with the times. Nevertheless, we remain deeply committed to the values instilled in us by the company founders, our grandfather, and father, of treating others as we would have them treat us.

John Thompson
President / CEO

JMT is owned and operated by John, Dickie, and Marty Thompson, brothers who represent the third generation of a family business. Each brother has vast construction knowledge, having begun their careers in the field, moving into project management before assuming hands-on, executive roles. The JMT team is comprised of some of the most experienced professionals in the industry; a company is only as good as the people it employs, and our staff is responsible for the many successful projects represented in our portfolio.

Meet the Thompsons

The JMT team believes in the importance of each and every relationship, from our employees to our clients, and everyone we meet along the way.

That’s why every completed project has one of our principal partners involved from start to finish. We say, “A Thompson will be on every project.” Whether it’s John, Dickie, Marty, or Travis, the long-standing trust we build on job sites with our clients, staff, and subcontractors are second to none in the industry. Headquartered in Cary, NC, JMT is a licensed general contractor in both North and South Carolina. We’ve completed a wide range of projects across the Southeast ranging from industrial and manufacturing facilities to convention centers and high-rise condominiums, delivery quality work at a competitive price.

JMT has operated in the southeastern region of the United States for more than 98 years, specializing in the construction of commercial, industrial, and institutional projects for public and private entities. Our team of professionals is experienced in negotiating, design/build, guaranteed maximum price (GMP), construction management (CM) at risk, and lump sum bid contract delivery systems. The company holds an A++ bond rating and its longevity is evidence of its financial strength and stability.
