A History of Integrity & Innovation

In 1977, after dedicating more than 20 years of active service to the local construction industry, Charles A. Lewis, Sr. founded C.A. Lewis, Inc. as a general contracting firm to serve eastern North Carolina.

C.A. Lewis began his company with a philosophy of listening to the needs of his clients first, then delivering services in a manner and timetable that benefitted them.  This philosophy of "Client First" quickly earned Lewis a well-deserved reputation for being able to perform extremely difficult renovation while maintaining the client's daily operations.

As the firm expanded its operations to include new facility construction, this tradition continued.  Today C.A Lewis, Inc. operates under two groups- industrial and commercial- in order to maximize our capabilities and provide our clients the highest level of service.

The industrial group of C. A. Lewis, Inc. performs renovations and additions to existing manufacturing facilities, often under very strict deadlines and quality standards. A significant portion of our work has been within the pharmaceutical industry.

Our commercial group provides services to religious, health care, and general commercial clients.  Our team-based program works with clients from start to finish and offers a unique approach that minimizes risk for the entire team. Internally, our management team continually works with employees to find and implement new and better ways to serve clients.

An extremely low employee turnover rate helps assure our clients that the best, most qualified individuals are working on their project.  An exceptional safety record gives further evidence of this commitment to excellence.  As a result of the C.A Lewis, Inc. "complete services" philosophy, over 90% of our projects are performed under a design-build or team-build approach.
