Arrow Building Corp. was reorganized in May of 1991. Crinco Investments surrendered its stock and Harold Clay and David McGlohon became the new stockholders. Arrow continued to build for Petro but saw a substantial downsizing with Petro withdrawing from its expansion plans. Arrow sought to replace the Petro work with El Paso area bid work and transitioned to a competitive bid general contractor. Some notable projects built in Arrow’s second generation were; the 1600 & 800 Car Parking Garages at Thomason Hospital, the EPIA Aircraft Rescue & Firefighting Station, the first of many retail centers for MIMCO, Inc. and the first of many projects at Providence Memorial Hospital and Sierra Medical Center for Tenet Hospitals.

THIRD GENERATION 1998-Present

Harold Clay redeemed his stock in January of 1998 and retired from the construction industry. David McGlohon and David Diaz became the new stockholders and decided to become a more hands on general contractor adding more craftsmen and equipment to self-perform some of Arrow’s concrete work. Arrow continued its relationships with MIMCO and Tenet and added other premier clients including; Peter Piper Pizza & Burger King, River Oaks Properties and Jack in the Box. Peter Piper Pizza and MIMCO returned Arrow to its traveling days with work in the Rio Grande Valley that continues today. Arrow, seeking concrete intensive work, built some hallmark El Paso concrete structures during this generation including; the Union Plaza Transit Terminal and Parking Garage, the Plaza Theatre Expansion, the Glory Road Transit Terminal and Parking Garage and the El Paso International Airport Consolidated Rental Agency Complex Parking Garage and Elevated Roadway.

Today Arrow remains committed to being El Paso’s Contractor of Choice through quality work completed in a timely manner with an honest and solutions oriented attitude.
