ATLANTA, GA — Founded in Georgia in 1943, Allison-Smith Company is celebrating a milestone — 80 years in business. As it sets its sights on a centennial legacy, Allison-Smith continues to thrive, beating the odds that state less than 12% of companies last more than 26 years.

The company is celebrating several significant milestones. In 2006, Allison-Smith Company experienced exponential growth upon launching into the hyperscale data center business. This strategic move led to the company’s expansion into Charleston, South Carolina, and Charlotte, North Carolina where they maintain a presence today. In December 2007, Allison-Smith transformed into a fully employee-owned organization. To improve safety, quality, speed, and efficiency of construction projects, Allison-Smith launched a modular operation that scales with the needs of its clients.

A $50 million company at its inception, Allison-Smith Company has grown into a $225 million company. Expanding service offerings to a national client base, the company has partnered with corporations like Microsoft, Cox Media, Visa, Intercontinental Exchange, Norfolk Southern, Coda, NCR, Cisco, and InterContinental Hotel Group. Allison-Smith has also lent its services to institutions like the Georgia Institute of Technology, the University of Georgia, and Georgia State.

Operating both domestically and on international fronts, including England, Finland, Chile, and Southeast Asia, the Allison-Smith Company has maintained its mission: “We build problem solvers.” By aligning its hiring practices with this mission and core values, the firm has overcome shortages in labor resources, accelerated schedules, and supply chain issues.

“Our success is possible because of the hard work of our employees and the support of our loyal and faithful clients," Allison-Smith Company's President Mark Gallacher said. "Innovation is in our blood. We focus each day to be better than the day before. We’ve built a culture that supports our growth and ability to solve our client’s biggest challenges. I am proud of our accomplishments and want to continue the tradition of excellence with the next generation of leaders. The future of Allison-Smith is bright, with strategic plans to grow responsibly and add game-changing team members over the next few years that live our core values.”

Beyond their core services, Allison-Smith demonstrates a commitment to the community by championing causes like Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and supporting local schools.
