BOSTON – October 6, 2021 – Kaplan Construction, a WBE general contractor and construction management firm providing comprehensive building programs across Greater Boston, announced today it has been named to the annual List of the Largest Family-Owned Businesses in Massachusetts published by the Boston Business Journal (BBJ) for the third year in a row. This list includes Massachusetts-headquartered companies that are owned, 51 percent or more, by two or more family members or a husband and wife. Kaplan is co-owned by COO Jane Kaplan Peck and President Nate Peck. The rankings are based on 2020 revenue.

Founded in 1976, Kaplan Construction’s highly experienced staff has worked together for many years, building a strong resume of renovation and new construction projects for commercial, healthcare, multi-family, and worship clients along the way. In 2014 Kaplan announced the culmination of a three-year management transition in which Jane Kaplan Peck was appointed chief operating officer (COO) and majority owner, and Nathan Peck was promoted to president.

  • Family is and always will be the foundation of our work, so to be listed alongside so many outstanding local family-owned businesses is a privilege. We celebrate the longevity in our core staff and are proud to have seen four sets of second-generation employees in our company since our founding 45 years ago. Our family values are infused into our company mission and culture, and we are honored to be recognized by the BBJ for our continued growth.
