Jon founded Shaw Brothers Construction with his brother Dan in 1977 and the company joined AGC Maine just a few years later in 1983. “AGC Maine was has been like a secret weapon for our company. We have met so many people and had so many opportunities that we would have never had without AGC,” Jon told the membership.
