Providing Information About the AGC in Dallas, Texas, From General Contractor Bob Moore Construction

Dallas Skyline, built in part by members of Dallas AGCOn October 24, 2008 the North / East Texas Chapter of the AGC (Associated General Contractors), merged with Associated Builders and Contractors of North Texas (ABC), to form a single organization. The new organization name change was effective January 1, 2009 and is now known as TEXO The Construction Association a Chapter of AGC / ABC. TEXO is a Latin term meaning, "to weave or blend," appropriate for the two Contractor organizations who for years have been competing associations.

The merger is a continuation of the evolution both organizations have experienced over the past several years. Originally, AGC served general contractors primarily, while ABC focused on sub-contractors and specialty contractors. Since 1995, the memberships of both contractor associations have expanded to include general contractors and sub-contractors alike, blurring the distinction between the two organizations.

With the merger, the AGC / ABC Chapters speak as a unified voice for the entire construction industry in Dallas. The merger will leverage the greater operating efficiencies of a consolidated headquarters staff and location. The principal location will be in Dallas with a second location in Fort Worth.
