J. E. Staub & Company was founded by Mr. Joseph E. Staub in 1941 with an initial capital investment of less than $1,500.00. Building upon its commercial construction experience, J. E. Staub & Company was awarded its first major industrial project in 1959 by Pennsylvania Tire and Rubber Company, Tupelo, Mississippi. This project opened the door for J. E. Staub & Company to become one of the largest industrial construction contractors in the State of Mississippi.
In 1973, J. E. Staub & Company changed the company’s name to JESCO, Inc. Today, JESCO offers a multitude of construction services throughout the Southeast including General Construction, Construction Management, Design-Build, Mechanical-Electrical, Millwright/Maintenance, and Industrial Services.
