Our History

Manusos General Contracting, Inc. (MGC) incorporated in 1992 as a family owned business in McHenry, Illinois. At our Fox Lake, Illinois location, we still exhibit our family owned business pride in presenting a superior product which Owner’s continue to experience with MGC’s capabilities. With its beginning as a home building and remodeling company, MGC’s keen awareness of producing a quality result for the Owner has expanded them to $20,000,000.00 in yearly sales in their few short years in the construction industry. Backed by an A+ surety bonding firm provides the Owner further confidence in the selection of Manusos General Contracting, Inc.

Employing union skilled carpenters and cement masons, has contributed to MGC’s “hands on” success story.

Charlene R. Manusos, President and one of the founders of Manusos General Contracting, Inc. has surrounded herself with expertise in the office and field to provide an Owner, Construction Manager, Architect, and/or Engineer with excellence from a small remodeling project, a new school or office building to a Water Treatment Facility.

We are an accomplished General Contractor but have also effectively provided work on individual contracts for concrete, trusses, general trades, etc.

We recently were awarded certification for two years as Female Business Enterprise for General Contracting and also to offer selective status in carpentry and concrete with the Illinois Department of Management Services which includes the State of Illinois Capital Development Board.
