Banton Construction Company was founded in 1979 and has steadily grown to emerge as a leading general contracting firm in the Connecticut market. Although the firm has largely expanded since its inception, the company’s theme has remained consistent – slow and steady growth over the years and upper management’s close involvement in each and every project. The firm values each of its individual projects, subcontractors, employees and clients as critical building block for its future. This practice has ensured a strong record of client satisfaction and overall success throughout the years.
