Our Story

Founded in 1950 by Clarence Arthur Rawls, Sr. and his brother-in-law, Terry Dickens, WIMCO Corp (WIMCO) is a licensed general contractor based in Washington, NC. Originally known as Wash­ington Iron Metal Company, our roots can be traced back to the scrap metal business, which became popular after World War II. WIMCO grew into a full metal building dealership before transitioning into the commercial construction firm it is today. 

With the capability of doing business anywhere in the US, WIMCO has built an impeccable reputation by providing our clients with first class service. We use our strong foundation to support our innovation and expansion. Practical and functional building philosophy has grown the WIMCO concept into a multi-award winning company capable of meeting any commercial, medical, office construction and self-storage needs. WIMCO has constructed nearly 3,000 projects totaling over 50 million square feet and pride ourselves on our deep roots in the Southeast Region. In 2020, WIMCO earned the Inc. 5000 award, and has also been named to Inc. magazine’s annual list of the Best Workplaces for 2021. We are currently working in 23 states. 

WIMCO’s core values include integrity, on-time delivery and quality craftsmanship. These values form the basis of who WIMCO is as a company. Behind each company are great leaders and, at WIMCO, that holds true. Leaders that care so deeply about their employees as people first will reap the benefits of a fiercely loyal group of long-tenured team members. The leadership team as well as every member of the WIMCO team, has embraced each other as family and assistance in times of need is a guarantee at WIMCO. The knowledge that everyone at the company cares for you and is there for you and your family is life-changing for all involved.
