Boston – Kaplan Construction announced it has been named to the annual list of the Largest Family-Owned Businesses in Massachusetts, published by the Boston Business Journal (BBJ), for the third year in a row.

This list includes Massachusetts-headquartered companies that are owned, 51% or more, by two or more family members or a husband and wife. Kaplan is co-owned by COO Jane Kaplan Peck and President Nate Peck. The rankings are based on 2020 revenue.

Founded in 1976, Kaplan Construction’s highly experienced staff has worked together for many years, building a strong resume of renovation and new construction projects for commercial, healthcare, multi-family, and worship clients along the way. In 2014, Kaplan announced the culmination of a three-year management transition in which Kaplan Peck was appointed COO and majority owner, and Peck was promoted to president.

“Family is and always will be the foundation of our work, so to be listed alongside so many outstanding local family-owned businesses is a privilege. We celebrate the longevity in our core staff and are proud to have seen four sets of second-generation employees in our company since our founding 45 years ago,” said Kaplan Peck.

“Our family values are infused into our company mission and culture, and we are honored to be recognized by the BBJ for our continued growth,” she added.

Kaplan has been recognized by the Family Business Association and the Northeastern University Center for Family Business for its accomplishments in family business success, multi-general family involvement, and contributions to the community and industry. In addition, it ranked sixth on the inaugural BBJ list of the 25 biggest women-owned businesses in Massachusetts in 2020 and has been named to the list of Top 100 Women-Led Businesses in Massachusetts by The Commonwealth Institute (TCI) for the past six years.
