About Our Building Construction Company Serving Lancaster & Chester County, PA
The Hoover Story
Allen Hoover started selling buildings in 1989 after he retired from the family farm. He became an authorized metal building dealer, working out of a tiny office in his house and visiting job sites in his trusty Oldsmobile station wagon. During the next decade, he sold more than two hundred pre-engineered metal buildings. We serve the Lancaster and Chester County, PA areas and surrounding locations.
In 2001, Allen’s son Richard took over the business, again working from a home office with his wife Martha. The business continued to grow, and as employees were hired, the office was moved to a small house in West Brandywine in 2004. In 2006, the business relocated to its present location in Honey Brook, Pennsylvania.
During the early days, the primary focus of Hoover Building Specialists was the supply and erection of pre-engineered metal buildings. Over the years, the construction building company has evolved into a full-service general contractor offering a complete range of construction services. Today the tradition of honesty, excellence, and competitive pricing is carried on by the following generations, making Hoover Building Specialists a leader among building construction companies in southeastern Pennsylvania.
