The Blanchard Family Legacy
Turn-of-the-century industrialization and growth in Newark provided the opportunity to move into the forefront of building construction. The firm remained a family enterprise, with management passing from father to son. William L. Blanchard carried on the tradition of excellence, as did his son, Isaac C. Blanchard.The company’s commercial projects continued to grow, along with the recognition and respect as one of the region’s premier general contractors.
With the start of World War II and the resurgence of construction demand, Blanchard became an integral part of the national war effort. William F. Blanchard oversaw the four-month conversion of a General Motors automobile plant into a Grumman “Wildcat” Navy fighter plane factory. This extraordinary accomplishment earned the firm the prestigious Army-Navy E Production Award for excellence in War production.
Beginning in the 1960s with the next generation of leadership under Richard and William C. Blanchard, large-scale office buildings in the heart of Newark and northern New Jersey became an important part of Blanchard’s growing portfolio.
