Jonathan and Jarret have the largest black owned construction company in Memphis.
Memphis, Tennesse — The Castle Black Construction owners started their company in 2005, and 12 years later, they decide to rebrand because the company tripled in size.
The business is based in Memphis, Tennesse and the twin brothers, Jonathan and Jarret Logan, who started the company, are proud of being one of the few black families managing a business in the South.
Over the course of 12 years, Castle Black Construction has built a reputation that they can effectively manage a project from beginning to end, which led to construction deals in retail, residential, religious, and pre-engineered buildings.
On the other hand, Jonathan and Jarret did express the difficulties of having a black owned business in an interview with Moxye:
“Being a minority contractor, let’s just be honest, we’re at a disadvantage… Financially, we have to be bankable to bankroll projects… And it’s harder for minority companies to prove ourselves with clients and financial institutions.”
Now, Castle Black Construction has become the largest black owned contractor in Memphis. Also, the company is the only black owned construction business in Memphis that can negotiate multimillion dollar deals.
Castle Black Construction’s Mission Statement: “We provide clients with the highest quality construction services within the marketplace, and to create customer relationships founded on mutual respect.”
