OBJ Features JK2’s Anniversary

JK2 Construction & Scenic entered its 30th year with revenues over $10 million and 12 percent growth over last year. The Apopka-based business has been named among the fastest growing companies in Central Florida, and it has numerous accolades, including several Excellence in Construction ABC Eagle Awards and a ranking among the GrowFL Florida Companies to Watch.

But it wasn’t always that way.

When Paul Holmes started JK2 Construction in 1987, he was the only employee. He dreamed of controlling his own career path and starting a business that could be multigenerational.

In the height of the Great Recession, company principals took pay cuts down to minimum wage and built the business back from reserves. In 2008, Holmes and the company took another risk, starting JK2 Scenic and bringing theming, specialty fabrication and millwork services in-house.  This allowed JK2 to diversify the business and create a revenue stream outside its typical construction clients.

The years of hard work and investment have paid off. JK2 Scenic has grown revenues by more than 1,000 percent since 2013, and JK2 has a multi-million-dollar roster of projects, including work for national homebuilders and area theme parks. The company now has more than 40 employees, and a second generation has entered the business, with Holmes’ daughter, Julie, as a principal and Vice President of JK2 Scenic and nephews Tucker and Garrett with JK2 Construction.

With a solid past and foundation of support from amazing clients, talented staff and valued partners over the last 30 years, JK2 is looking toward the future.
