Armed with a profound faith in the future of the “Agricultural South” and strengthened with sincerity and determination, Clingman M. Guest launched his contracting business in 1893. The company evolved to C.M. Guest & Sons when Walter and Romeo Guest joined their father. The two sons reaffirmed Senior Guest’s commitment to integrity and hard work, and the company grew and prospered.

Romeo Guest moved the corporate headquarters to Greensboro, North Carolina in the early 1950’s. Over the years, the company built a respected reputation throughout the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic States, constructing manufacturing and distribution plants, office buildings, and retail facilities. Romeo Guest was a major participant in the development of the Research Triangle Park and is considered by many business and political leaders to be its “Founding Father”.

Today Romeo Guest Associates, Inc., is an employee-owned company based in Durham, North Carolina. Although no longer owned by the Guest family, our current management team, led by President James B. Robbins, II, is committed to pursuing the same goals and ideals as the founder. A solid reputation, repeat business, and an on-going dedication to excellence will ensure our standing as one of the leading contractors in the Triangle region.
