Nashville, TN (PRWEB) May 26, 2008
At a time when large, publicly traded home builders have been struggling, The Jones Company, a local, privately held builder, moved up significantly in both the "Professional Builder Giant 400" rankings and the Builder Magazine's "Builder 100 & The Next 100" list.
Professional Builder ranked America's 400 largest home builders, and compared the numbers from 2007 to 2008. The Jones Company actually moved up a total of 72 spots, from #215 in 2007 to #143 in 2008.
Builder Magazine's annual list represents America's biggest builders in 2007 and ranked The Jones Company #129, which is up 33 spots from #162 last year. Out of the top 130 builders, only twenty of them including The Jones Company had an increase in revenue in 2007. In fact, The Jones Company's revenue was up 20%, with 373 closings last year.
"While we take nothing for granted, we are certainly proud of our accomplishments, given the current housing environment," said Richard Chapman, President of The Jones Company. "I do believe it is interesting to note that the largest builders have seen significant decreases in revenue and closings over the last two years, while our locally owned company that has built our reputation around value is still holding its own."
The Jones Company has built nearly 3000 homes in Middle Tennessee since 1995. They are a local, privately held company based in Franklin, TN. For more information on The Jones Company, visit the company's website at http://www.LiveJones.com or call (877)845-6637.
