About J.J. McGuire

President

JJ McGuire first opened its doors in 1987 with John McGuire at the helm, Frank Difelice as a partner and Andy Wojtis as a VP/Senior Superintendent.  In 1989, Jim Green joined J.J. McGuire and became a partner.  In that same year, Jeff Robinson and Mitch Newbold began their careers with the company as well; Jeff as a junior estimator and Mitch as a superintendent.

In the first year of operations, the company had approximately 15 employees and a volume of work that was less than $200,000/year.  Many of our first employees still work for us today which credits J.J. McGuire’s longstanding commitment and loyalty shared with our employees.  With John, Frank and Jim’s experience and respect within the industry, the company was able to take full advantage of the many opportunities given to them.  This enabled J.J. McGuire to grow and excel at a steady pace.

By 1992, our volume of work had increased to $10 million a year and upwards of 30 employees.  This continued to increase to $30 million in 2000, up to our current capacity which exceeds $40 million a year and, as many as, 140 employees.

As a true general contractor, the company still maintains a contingent of skilled workers including carpenters and labourers.  With the flexibility to self-perform concrete/formwork, rough carpentry, demolition and other scopes of work, we are able to provide better momentum to manage and control schedules more efficiently.

In 1999 after years of hard work and dedication, Jim Green retired from J.J. McGuire and Jeff Robinson and Andy Wojtis were given the honour of becoming partners.  In 2001, Frank Difelice’s retirement provided the opportunity for Mitch Newbold to become partner as well.

John McGuire, the last of the original partners, retired from the company in 2007 leaving a legacy for the new generation to follow.  Leo Urrasio was introduced as partner at this time.

Currently, the company is rigorously growing under the direction of the current Senior Management team lead by Jeff Robinson (President), Mitch Newbold (Vice President of Operations), Andy Wojtis (VP/Senior Superintendent) and Leo Urrasio (Vice President of Finance).

The perseverance and dedication instilled in all of us through John McGuire, Jim Green and Frank Difelice still exists today.  We continue the excellence they have strived for since our inception in 1987.  J.J. McGuire continues to grow and develop with a team of experienced and dedicated employees, supervisors and managers.

We only look towards the future.
