E. Tom Pyle Jr & Associates, P.A. Architect
We have been a one stop shop for several years after our beginning in 1946 as Pyle Construction Company which was incorporated in 1961 and whose name was changed in 1971 to Pyle Inc. Construction Company.
McPherson Architectural Service began in 1948, a company I acquired in 1971 and after several years, in 1982, I changed the name to E. Tom Pyle Jr & Associates, P.A. (ETPA) After having worked in the summers for Pyle Construction Company since 1959 up until 1966 and previously from summers in 1957 and 1958, I washed dishes in our family-owned Hanger Restaurant owned by my Father Ed and my Uncle Dino, while my Mother Alice and Aunt Bea were the Hostesses.
McPherson Material and Supply Company was started in 1956 and incorporated in 1958 to begin the process of taking control of our material prices, whose name was changed in 1982 to McPherson Supply Inc. (MSI) In 1984, McPherson True Value and Home Center, a subsidiary of MSI, completed our "Three Stranded Cord" capturing retail and wholesale National Direct Manufacturing Buying Power.
