Soon, Russell expanded the business to include commercial construction, a direction on which we now place our sole emphasis. In 1972, Russell passed leadership of the company to son, Richard LeFrois. On a daily basis Rich embraces the challenging demands and close-working relationships required in the commercial contracting industry. With his own management style and vision, Rich increased the company’s focus from residential construction toward all aspects of commercial and industrial general contracting.
