Blatt Construction, Reading, Pa., has changed its name to the Blatt Group (theblattgroup.com) and has three established divisions—Blatt Construction Inc., Blatt Welding and Fabrication Inc. and Blatt Industrial Services Inc.
Larry Blatt, founder and president of the company, which was started in 1987, said the change in structure enables Blatt to more efficiently serve its growing base of industrial, commercial and residential clients, especially during multiple emergencies.
Larry Blatt continues to lead the group, while the divisions are headed by his three sons. Tim Blatt is vice president of Construction; Jim Blatt is vice president of Industrial Services and also office manager; and Josh Blatt is vice president of Welding and Fabrication.
“Blatt offers a comprehensive portfolio–construction, contracting, building and plant management, housekeeping, interior and exterior maintenance, concrete work, office design, welding and fabrication, renovations, woodworking, glasswork and more,” said Tim Blatt. “We own virtually all of the equipment we need to get the job done, so we have a reputation for fast turnaround. We have the knowledge and equipment we need so we can do the work efficiently, safely and in a timely manner.”
Blatt continues to serve its first client, the Carpenter Technology Corporation, Reading, with its numerous plant and building project capabilities through a dedicated, skilled on-site team of 30 tradesmen. Another long-term client is Reading Health System where Blatt has another on-site team of about 10 craftsmen.
Blatt has provided its general construction and maintenance services to other industries, manufacturers, churches, colleges, nursing homes, private individuals and other businesses in Reading and Berks, and surrounding Lehigh, Schuylkill, Montgomery, Chester, Lebanon and Lancaster counties.
“We even help our customers manage their workplace uniforms, change light bulbs, select furniture, hire temps and repair locks. We do everything,” said Larry Blatt. Blatt is a member of the Keystone Chapter, Associated Builders and Contractors, Inc., and the Berks County Home Builders Association and the Greater Reading Chamber of Commerce.
