Fleming Construction – Quality & Integrity Since 1946

How does any business maintain relevance decade after decade? First of all, it needs to offer a reliably high-quality product. Second, it needs to deliver on stated promises, time after time. Third, there needs to be exceptional customer service and repeat business based on strong relationships; and finally, it needs to be able to evolve to meet the needs of changing technology, changing aesthetic, and changing purposes. These high standards are in addition to businesses needing to be able to weather economic challenges, changes in leadership, employee turnover, and modifications to codes and standards.

This is no small task, and only a small percentage of businesses make the grade. According to statistics from a 2018 Bureau of Labor Statistics report, about 20% of all businesses fail in their first year. That number goes up to half in five years. After ten years, only one-third of small businesses are still in operation.  To make it twenty, thirty, forty years is a feat. To make it seventy years? Well, that puts you in a class only a few can claim.

The Fleming Construction Group is closing in on 74 years of continuous business, and that number alone speaks volumes.

FCG – A History of Exceptional Construction Service Since 1946

Over the decades, the Fleming Construction Group has maintained its status as one of the most reliable names in commercial construction by changing with the times. Founded by Lloyd Fleming, FCG began as a local company servicing the greater Tulsa area. By 1968, Fleming had established its relationship with Walmart, building one of their first stores in Claremore.

In 1974, Lloyd Fleming stepped down and passed the reins on to longtime employee, Ray Miller Jr., who, until 2015, oversaw its growth as one of the nation’s top steel building contractors and erectors in the United States. Under Miller’s leadership, Fleming – known then as the Fleming Building Company, won Butler Manufacturing’s National High-Volume Builder-of-the-Year Award four times and was regularly listed in the top ten in Metal Construction News’ Top 100 Metal Builders.

FCG – The Legacy Continues

These days, the Fleming Construction Group is still one of the most trusted names in the metal building industry. In recent years, FCG has created two new services divisions – the PEMB-focused Fleming Steel Erectors and retrofit and roof maintenance arm Fleming 8760. These two companies, along with Fleming Construction, which is now focused on conventionally built non-residential projects that are delivered via traditional general construction, design+build  and construction management project delivery methods, offer a comprehensive service profile to the large building construction market across Oklahoma.

In the past four years, the Fleming Construction Group has achieved a number of high-profile project completions, including a 300K square foot Amazon Sort Facility, constructed from ground breaking to certificate of completion in just eight months, and the Alfa Laval manufacturing facility in Broken Arrow, which was the 2019 winner of the Association of General Contractor’s Industrial Project of the Year Award.
