History

It is as true today as it was over 55 years ago, Compson is a name synonymous with quality, integrity, and depth of experience. It is a name that has stood the test of time for four generations as a trusted icon in the building industry. Founded in 1946, the firm has now exceeded the $1 billion mark in the development of residential, industrial, office and retail complexes throughout the Eastern Seaboard.

Although Compson has completed hundreds of projects over the years, the company continues to recognize, on an ongoing basis, the intrinsic value of maintaining a “hands-on” operation. Compson’s meticulous attention to detail, perpetual concern for their clients and honest forthright business practices has left a legacy unsurpassed in the industry. Few real estate development companies enjoy the rave reviews and genuine respect Compson receives from buyers, tenants, governmental boards, subcontractors, contractors, and community groups alike.
