Joe Koch Construction was founded in 1984 specializing in rough framing and finished carpentry. Four years later Joe Koch purchased STANJIM Homes, a well-known and successful local construction company.

Joe Koch Construction and STANJIM Homes has since become one of the largest, most innovative residential builders in the Mahoning Valley. We were recognized nationally by Inc. Magazine, as one of the fastest growing privately held companies in the U.S.A., ranking #140 in 1991 and #462 in 1992.

Joe Koch Construction has successfully completed several Mahoning Valley housing developments in the past thirty years. One of our first ventures was Countryside in West Austintown, followed by Stone Hollow, Spring Meadow and Boulder Creek in Austintown, and Huntington Woods in Boardman.  We also built many homes off-site on our customers' lots.

During our construction careers we’ve seen scores of new players come and go. We’ve weathered the storms and rolled with the punches. We’ve watched the city grow and change. We’ve been proud to be a part of those changes.

We’re proud of our people, and we’re proud of what we do. After so many years working together side by side, our team is a well-oiled machine. We’ve pretty much seen it all. No matter what a project may throw our way, we remain positive, passionate, and extraordinarily effective.

Over three decades in the world of residential construction means we can recognize and solve issues big and small before they even arise. It means we can guide our homeowners through the process of homebuilding with ease.

With Joe Koch Construction you get:

 - A highly-skilled proficient work force

 - Advanced construction techniques

 - Professional service from start to finish

 - Quality and affordability you can depend on.
