OUR History

Take a look at our history and you’ll see promises delivered, deadlines met and expectations exceeded. Since its inception, J. A. Moss has operated with the philosophy that fairness will build long term relationships. 

Jim Moss entered the construction field as a member of Priester Construction Company in 1985.  
The name of the company was changed to Moss-Priester Construction Company in 1989,
and then to J. A. Moss Construction Company, Inc. in 1990.

In an effort to better serve our clients in North Mississippi and West Tennessee, J. A. Moss opened a Memphis Division in 2016. Jamie Carpenter, Tennessee vice president, oversees all work in that division.

Over the last 3 plus decades, we have completed over 400 projects ranging in size from $5,000 to $9,000,000.  Our objective on each project is owner satisfaction. 

Our clients have confidence in our company because we believe strongly in a job done right. We know that when we start a job, the client is depending on us, so we do everything we can to surpass all expectations. In the end, our clients know J. A. Moss is quality.
