People. Safety. Solutions. Performance.

Since 1941, our success has been built on these four key values.  It is what drives us every day to fulfill our mission.

Donley’s engages genuine people to provide construction services that deliver and sustain our clients’ vision through safety, innovation, integrity, and reliability

We are fourth-generation, nationally recognized leader in construction. Over the last 79 years, we’ve grown into a highly respected, innovative concrete construction company with the kind of people clients want to work with.


In 1895, James and George Donley formed a partnership as lathing contractors known as Donley Brothers Company in Cleveland. In 1941, Don and Phil Donley established Ernest F. Donley Sons, Inc. as concrete formwork contractors by purchasing the construction department of Donley Brothers Company. Terry Donley became the company’s third-generation leader, taking over as president and CEO in 1968. In 2002, he handed the baton to his son, Mac Donley, who currently serves as president and CEO.

Expansion from our Cleveland office over the years has led to offices in North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia. Donley’s has successfully delivered projects in eight states.


It's All About the People


With an average staff tenure of over ten years, our connection to genuine people has been a critical component of our success and growth.   This includes over 20 families that have had at least two generations working for the company.
