MLB Construction, established in 1947 in Albany, under the name McManus, Longe, Brockwehl Inc., is celebrating 75 years in business.
Operations started from the attic of the Longe household. Throughout the years the company expanded, changing its name to MLB Industries in the mid-1970s, and later to MLB Construction Services LLC.
As it celebrates its landmark anniversary, James M. Dawsey, MLB president, said the company is “in the process of our next leadership/succession transition. This should take care of MLB Construction for the next 20-30 years. Based on what this next team has learned, it will make it easy for them to do their transition after this one.”
He said the company “will continue to do what we do well—higher education, K-12, medical, resorts and historic renovations. We are also licensed up and down the east coast and will continue to build in these markets.
“We also plan to push into the housing market, both affordable and market rate. We want to continue to grow our design-build side in all the above markets.”
