Our History

Our History

Essex General Construction is a commercial general contractor with offices in Eugene and Portland Oregon. 

We were founded by Jon Texter in Eugene Oregon in 1987. Throughout the years we've built a variety of commercial buildings throughout Western Oregon. Many of our projects have been negotiated. We've also participated in many publicly bid projects. 

In 2014 we opened a Portland office to effectively manage our projects throughout Western Oregon and expand into Southwest Washington.
