In 1950, Andrew Robicsek, an Hungarian immigrant, founded a one-man remodeling and handyman service. Now, more than 60 years later, Andrew Roby (Robicsek changed his name) is the largest custom residential remodeler in the Charlotte, N.C., region.
Two years after starting the company, Robicsek hired Glenn Haston as superintendent. The two would work together for over 25 years, establishing the fledgling organization's reputation.
In 1976, Haston bought the firm outright from Robicsek – but kept the name – and today, the second and third generation of Haston's extended family work for the firm. Meanwhile, Andrew Roby Inc. has established three subsidiaries: Roby Electric, Roby Commercial and Roby Coastal.
Throughout its near-60-year existence, Andrew Roby Inc. has strived to treat its employees and clients as family. Two members of the original Roby team worked for Andrew Roby Inc. for more than 50 years and seven others claim over 25 years of service. Meanwhile, Andrew Roby Inc. has become synonymous with outstanding service and second-to-none craftsmanship. The firm has won hundreds of awards and is now one of the premier residential construction firms in the Carolinas.
