About Us

The Greater Salem Contractors Association is a group of business and professional tradespeople who were organized in 1965 for the purpose of improving communications and the relationship between themselves and the consuming public. The membership represents every facet of the construction industry and its associated services.

Initially, the Greater Salem Contractors Association concerned themselves with improving the public’s image of contractors in general. A standard was developed for membership that requires the business to demonstrate a high level of professionalism, offering craftsmanship and quality in whatever services they provide.

Today, the organization is one of the Greater Salem area’s most respected groups. Their active participation in community programs, service, and government affairs as well as fostering the value of family and fellowship has earned them the praise and support of public officials, citizens, and customers alike.
