An Enduring Foundation: In 1991, Century Drywall was founded by Joel Trojan, his brother, John Trojan, Jr., and their brother-in-law, Mike Elliot. At the time, three founders were well established in the industry; Joel and John had 20 years between them as carpenter foremen, and Mike, who holds an engineering degree, was employed as an owner’s representative and project superintendent. The trio recognized the need for a quality construction services firm in the industry, and were also encouraged to open the firm by their father and father-in-law, John Trojan, Sr., who had worked in construction for over three decades as a Union Latherer and Business Agent.


Proven Team.

Our team of more than 500 union-trained construction professionals brings a wealth of experience and skill to every project. From the office to the field, everyone at Century is committed to excellence in all facets of their job.
