Message from the President

John H. Murphy, Jr.In the book Corporate Ethics and Corporate Governance, Milton Friedman wrote "There is one and only one social responsibility of business to use: its resources and engage in activities designed to increase profit". Although we certainly set the highest bar in corporate ethics, we subscribe to a different value system; we believe our responsibility reaches far beyond dollars and cents. For thirty plus years we have produced quality products in a timely and cost effective manner, while providing jobs for members of the community and contributing to the funds that keep our local, state and federal government up and running. The way we see it our company is not just a money machine or a balance sheet, it is a human enterprise run by caring people who understand the impact of the work we do in our community.

Not only has Eastern General Contractors, Inc. had success in constructing various buildings--large and small but we are also a flagship for the enhancement of local agencies, such as the twenty-year maintenance program we run at Camp Atwater--a National Youth Leadership Development Institute located in North Brookfield, MA. or constructing handicapped ramps for local churches in the community, to name a few.

Eastern General Contractors, Inc. will continue to find innovative ways to forge ahead in the direction of larger building contracts and enhancing the community services we provide for free. Our proudest goal will continue to be the success of our families and the success of the families around us.

John H. Murphy Jr.
