WINCHESTER, Virginia, July 1, 2017 – Engineering News-Record (ENR) released its “Top 400” contractor rankings this summer and Howard Shockey & Sons, Inc. has again been listed as one of the largest general contractors in the United States.

With revenues of $175 million last year, Shockey was ranked #390 on the “ENR Top 400” list.  Shockey added $235 million in new contracts in 2016.

“We see significant opportunities for growth in 2017,” said Jeff Boehm, President of Howard Shockey & Sons, Inc., adding the company is in a robust hiring phase.
