Company Summary

Fosse Commercial Contractors, LLC began in 1985 when Mr. Robert Fosse began his own company, Fosse Painting and General Construction in the Houston area. In 1993 the original company was merged with another small-scale local company, West General Contractors, and the company began to bid successfully for larger scale projects.

In 2002 the company's management came to the conclusion that the firm had grown sufficiently to alter its primary target market segment from the residential construction segment to the higher margin office and commercial construction segment. The company plans to implement this change by the middle of Year 1.

As part of its growth and altered focus, FCC is planning on changing its charter from a limited liability company to a class C corporation registered in Texas, allowing greater access to investment funds to fuel its growth.
