Boston – Kaplan Construction announced it has ranked 13th on the list of the 40 largest women-owned businesses in Massachusetts by the Boston Business Journal (BBJ) based on total 2022 revenue.
To be considered for the list, the Massachusetts-based business must be owned at least 51% by a woman or women. This is the second year Kaplan has been included on the BBJ’s list of largest women-owned businesses in Massachusetts.
“This year’s list has expanded from 35 to 40 firms, a testament to the growing number of women who own businesses in Massachusetts,” said Jane Kaplan Peck, COO of Kaplan Construction. “I am proud to be part of such great company and congratulate the other women leaders being recognized by the Boston Business Journal.”
Kaplan Construction is certified as a Women Business Enterprise (WBE) by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Nearly one quarter of Kaplan’s employees are women, well above the industry average of 10%. In addition, Kaplan frequently performs on projects requiring Boston Resident Jobs Policy (BRJP) compliance and has employed a significant number of women and minority-owned subcontractors in doing so. The firm has met or exceeded the 10% WBE utilization requirement on several recent projects in Boston, including 9 Leyland Street, Lyman School Apartments, 9 Williams Street, St. Botolph Terrace, Lena Park Community Center, 35 West Newton Street, and 11 Mount Pleasant Avenue.
Previously, Kaplan has been included on the BBJ’s list of largest family-owned businesses. In addition, it was featured on the list of Top 100 Women-Led Businesses in Massachusetts by The Commonwealth Institute (TCI) for seven years in a row.
