The name Fenton comes from Joseph Fenton Mulcahy. Joseph Fenton Mulcahy served in World War II as a crew chief performing surveillance missions over Japan piloting the infamous P-51 Mustang. Upon returning home, Joseph worked in construction for a local contracting company. From there, Joseph founded Fenton Construction Co., Inc. in 1965. From its early beginnings, housed in Joseph’s home with just two employees, Fenton Construction Co., Inc. has grown into a medium sized general contractor and construction manager ready to perform ground-up or interior projects.
Michael J. Mulcahy took over as President of the family owned and operated company in 1987. Under his leadership, Fenton quickly rose through the ranks to become Central New Jersey’s leading builder of industrial, commercial, religious, educational, and sports facilities.
Michael has over 30 years of experience in the construction industry. A graduate of the New Jersey Institute of Technology with a B.S. in Engineering Technology, Mike’s knowledge, experience, and attention to details began with his early involvement in construction. Since becoming President, he now serves in development/management and maintains his client base as executive manager of projects.
INNOVATION, EXCELLENCE, & COMMITMENT
Fenton has completed many multi-million dollar construction projects throughout New Jersey, Eastern Pennsylvania, and Southern New York State. The company’s achievements include facilities for L’Oreal USA, the Sterns Department Store in the Bridgewater Commons Mall, the high-tech renovations of the men’s and women’s locker rooms for the Rutgers University basketball teams, the Skylands Ice World in Hardyston Township, the Penske Truck leasing facility in Parsippany, the Monroe 33 Sports Center in Monroe Township, and the new Family Life Center for Valley View Chapel in Long Valley.
“Building with Integrity” is intertwined throughout our corporate culture and purposefully integrated throughout the entire construction process. We recognize that excellent customer service is the key to long term success with our clients and attribute Fenton’s longevity to commitment to our mission.
Mike says, “Fenton Construction is synonymous with Building with Integrity.” Our employees, subcontractors, and suppliers share our commitment to it and our customer’s contract with us because of it.
BUILDING TOWARD THE FUTURE
To meet the demands of increasingly sophisticated projects, municipal approval permitting processes, safety awareness, and OSHA regulations, Fenton has invested in advanced computer technology, training programs, and employee education to maintain the company’s competitive edge.
With decades of construction experience, we are energetic, creative, problem solvers, responsive, flexible, and have an excellent reputation both corporately and personally.
This is what our clients expect and this is what Fenton delivers!
