E.E. Austin is a general contractor with offices in Erie, PA.  We have been serving Northwest Pennsylvania and the Southern Tier of New York for over 100 years. Since 1906, the foundation of our performance has been the personal integrity, technical competence and consistent quality performance of our employees.

Besides our well-experienced supervision and project management, we are signed with the local Carpenter, Laborer, and Cement Mason Unions, giving us the added benefit of self-performing key components of the work.  Empowering our employees at all levels and providing a direct, open line to management allows scheduling flexibility.  If adding to the crew or working overtime is required, we can respond quickly.

Proper planning represents the most critical element of a construction project.  Include E.E. Austin in your plans for your next project.
