Robinson Construction Company is extremely proud to have exceeded 500 employees for the first time in company history. On November 19, 2014, payroll checks were processed for 513 employees, with over 200 of those employees working in the western Kentucky area. The company’s 500+ employee count ranks it in an elite class of businesses within the United States and the State of Kentucky. According to the 2011 Census, only 0.3 percent of firms in the US and 3.5 percent of firms in Kentucky employ over 500 employees. When asked to comment on the milestone, Robinson’s Vice President, Paul Findlay, said the following, “We are extremely proud of many things at Robinson Construction - our longevity, the projects we have constructed, and our long list of repeat clients; however, what we are most proud of, is the fact that we are able to provide a livelihood for a growing number of employees each year.”

Findlay elaborated on the economic impact associated with the milestone, commenting, “In addition to the number of employees, we will also exceed $25 million in payroll this year. We could not be more excited about the positive impact for our employees, their families, and the communities in which they live and work.”

Robinson Construction Company began as a heating and air conditioning company in 1946 by Edward G. Robinson. The company was incorporated in the late 1970s under its current president, Frank Robinson, and has experienced moderate growth since that time. In order to better serve the company’s Kentucky clients, Robinson opened an office in Hopkinsville, Kentucky in 2005. Since that time, the company’s growth has increased significantly, currently ranking the company No. 82 on ENR Midwest’s Top 100 Contractors list for 2014.
