The Start of Something Good
As the United States was thrown into World War II, Jack Green understood the importance of keeping America working. In 1941, he founded J.A. Green Construction. Focusing his efforts in and around New York City, Jack quickly built a reputation as a fair and honest developer and manager, building commercial and residential properties across the New York Metropolitan area.
While developing properties around what was then known as Idlewild Airport (later JFK), Jack recognized the need for a new type of warehouse to meet the specialized requirements of the emerging air cargo and freight forwarding industry. The company focused its efforts on the development of quality office and warehouse space specifically designed and located for the air freight industry. Relentless in our management of costs while never compromising his passion for extraordinary customer service, JAG developed state of the art facilities for an emerging industry.
Spanning three generations of family ownership, the J.A. Green team expanded across the country, building, owning, and managing distribution facilities adjacent to Dallas/Fort Worth International, Houston Bush Intercontinental, and Sea-tac International Airports.
