The firm’s operations base is located in new offices at 412 N. Main Street, Plymouth, Michigan, a suburb of Detroit in southeastern Michigan. In 1996, the D. J. Maltese received the Franklin Award for one of the best family-owned-and-operated companies with ten employees or less. During the 1990s, the company grew four-fold to forty people. After the storms from 2006-2010, the company is now a small firm with a very experienced team.
D.J. Maltese was started in 1946 as a plastering contractor.
By the late ’50s, we were one of Michigan’s largest companies.
With the onset of drywall in the mid-60s, our company transformed into a general contracting firm. Over the next 10 years, the company grew into construction work that included commercial renovation and new office buildings.
In the mid-70s, Dominic and Joe joined their father and took the company to the next level. By the early ’80s, D.J. Maltese was offering design-build services and construction management services that were virtually unknown by small companies and being provided only by very large construction companies. Therein they found a niche in the construction industry to service smaller companies with the quality and services provided by larger companies.
One of their earliest projects was Garrison Hills Condominiums in Dearborn at the early onset of condo development in Michigan.
During the 1990s, the company grew four-fold to forty people.
In 1996, the D. J. Maltese received the Franklin Award for one of the best family-owned-and-operated companies with ten employees or less.
After the storms from 2006-2010, the company is now a small firm with a very experienced team!
