A general contractor and real estate developer headquartered in Greensboro has opened a Wilmington office.
Samet Corp.'s new office is located at 575 Military Cutoff Road, Suite 202, according to a news release.
Samet collaborates with architects and subcontractors on construction and development projects in the multi-family, industrial/manufacturing, military, corporate office, healthcare, education and sports sectors "and brings a best-in-class MWBE [Minority- and Women- Owned Business Enterprise] program to its offerings," the release stated.
Wilmington's growth helped lead to the decision by Samet to open an office in the Port City.
"It's about the timing," said Livian Jones, development and construction consultant with Streamline Development, who is working with Samet. "They feel like this is a strong market with what they do, and indicators for this market are that it will continue to grow and be strong."
According to the release, the new location’s leadership includes Trey Black, regional operations director, and David Bollenbacher, project executive, who are both veterans in the construction industry with over 20 years of experience each.
“I’m thankful to be back in Wilmington after traveling extensively for work in this industry,” Black stated in the release. “Once I experienced the culture and people at Samet, I knew it was where I belonged.”
Bollenbacher said in the release, “I am both excited and proud to help bring the reputation, character, and platform of Samet Corporation to Wilmington. I look forward to demonstrating our unique capabilities in both construction and development and our commitment to not only benefit those in our industry but also our community at large.”
Samet has been in business since 1961 and also has offices in Charlotte, Raleigh, Charleston and Savannah.
