About Us

About Wohlsen Construction

Wohlsen Construction is an award-winning Mid-Atlantic construction company. With over 125 years of experience under our hard hat, we partner with owners and design professionals to build high-quality, functional projects. Our customized services run the gamut, from preconstruction and construction project management, to design/build construction and post-construction services. Our core markets include senior living, healthcare and higher education, but our experience spans far beyond that into many other industries.

The Early Years

In 1877, a 16-year old carpenter named Herman F. Wohlsen left Germany and settled in Central Pennsylvania. He began to apply his craft with much success and in 1890 he started Wohlsen Construction Company in Lancaster, PA.

Mr. Wohlsen quickly earned a reputation for his efficient work ethic and attention to quality and detail. It is a legacy that continues today throughout our company.

A Regional Construction Company

There are many reasons why Wohlsen has grown to become one of the most respected construction companies in the Mid-Atlantic States. We listen to our clients and determine the best plan of action to meet their goals. It is the only way to build great construction projects and great relationships. We are passionate about everything we do, from our use of Virtual Design Construction to our community involvement in the neighborhoods where we work and live.

We have seven full-service offices in five states – PA, DE, MD, NJ and CT – and are active in numerous trade associations. We have strong relationships with the best subcontractors in many trades. As a result, we can ensure expanded bid coverage and deliver the best possible value to our clients.

Ethics in Business

Gary Langmuir, President & CEO of Wohlsen Construction, is a recipient of the Lancaster Samaritan Counseling Center’s Ethics in Business Award. The evaluation process is based on candidates who demonstrate five ethical principles of conduct: Integrity, Fairness & Justice, Stewardship, Life-Enhancing and Transparency. Our employees take pride in working for a company whose leader demonstrates ethics and integrity. Mr. Langmuir said it perfectly when he said, “Without ethics, you have nothing.”

Integrity is one of Wohlsen’s Core Values and we take great pride in Building Trust through Everything We Do.
