Marty, John and Dickie Thompson J.M. Thompson Company is owned and operated by John, Dickie and Marty Thompson, brothers who represent the third generation in a family business. Each of the brothers has a vast knowledge of construction, having started out in the field and eventually working as project managers before assuming their executive roles. An officer serves as Project Executive and remains hands-on involved with each project. The JMT Team is comprised of some of the most experienced professionals in the industry. It is said that 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.

“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.”
