About Us

The owners of HJH, John Johannsen (President) and Lex Heinold (Vice-President), have been close friends throughout their their childhood years in Townsend, graduating high school together in 1985.  John procceeded to go college and earn his degree in finance while working for a local general contractor and Lex went to work as an operator for an excavating company.  After receiving four years of experience in the excavating and general contracting fields, they decided to go in business together forming HJH General Contractors.

HJH started out as a very small company with Lex and John being the only employees for the first year.  We started the company with a very “hands-on” approach which is one of our most important business traits still today.  Our company’s up-front honest approach to doing business extends well beyond the planning process with the clients, we carry it to the job site.

HJH has grown to employee a staff of 12-16 people, however, our philosophies haven’t changed. We are constantly on the job site and all of our customers know us personally. HJH has grown from doing renovations and additions to building large custom homes, traditional homes, and various sized commercial projects such as: large warehouses, medical office facilities, and light commercial tennant fit-outs.

Although our company has grown, we have never wavered from our original business philosophies of honesty, integrity, and hard work.  We also enjoy giving back to our community. We have been a sponsor of the Middletown Challenger league since it’s inception in 2003, along with contributions to various other charities and organizations.
