Company Story

 

MT Builders Companies is a commercial construction company based in Scottsdale, Arizona, and was formed in 1995 by Michael Tarver and Philip Bell. CEO, Mike Tarver, and many of the staff members have more than 30 years of experience in the Arizona construction industry. Our professional and qualified team has completed over $800 million of construction work including multi-family and senior living communities, retail centers, churches, schools, and office/industrial buildings.

MT Builders Companies is recognized as one of Arizona’s top contracting companies. Over the years, we have been included in the Phoenix Business Journal’s list of top commercial contractors, the ACE Awards for the largest privately owned companies in Arizona, and Ranking Arizona’s list for best multi-family builders. In addition, several of the projects we have built are recipients of local and national awards.

Much of our business consists of negotiated projects, and we have accomplished this by treating our clients fairly, doing quality work and performing our work on schedule. If you did the math, opening our doors in 1995 means in 2015 we are celebrating 20 years of business in Arizona. And we aren’t stopping now! MT Builders Companies is looking forward to another amazing 20 years.
