Our Company’s History
In 1958 John R. Williams Sr., the founder of Williams & Rowe became a part of Florida’s building boom of the 1950’s and worked with most of the custom home builders that developed Northeast Florida. What started as a small painting company soon grew to include renovations of commercial businesses. John Williams Sr. even built a church for his own community and was building churches all over Florida and south Georgia. Many renovations were executed at that time for the growing Winn Dixie supermarket chain. Williams & Rowe’s tradition of long term valued relationships has continued for over forty years remodeling hundreds of Winn Dixie stores and continues doing so today. The tradition of keeping clients comes from Mr. John R. Williams Sr.’s basic philosophy of honest work, no shortcuts, and quality materials. A job that did not meet the qualifications for the budget, was not done. Our company’s integrity has encouraged the growth of long-standing relationships with loyal clients, subcontractors, and our own personnel. Our staff is a close team of professionals, some having worked at Williams & Rowe for over thirty years.
Current president James R. Williams, emphasizes Integrity, Quality, and Knowledge as Williams & Rowe’s core values: “We held true to them through three generations of leadership. Technology has changed but our integrity never changes.” Williams & Rowe will soon mark its sixtieth year in business.
