The History of Mosites

The Early Days 

The life story of Moscos George Mosites set the foundation for Mosites to become the contractor it is today. A descendent of fishermen and sailors from a small Greek village on the Black Sea, Moscos had the passion to move fearlessly in the direction of his dream for a better life.  At the age of 17, he set sail bound to pursue his dreams in America.
MG, as he became known in America, settled in the thriving industry-rich town of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in 1917.  Soon thereafter, he began contracting for painting work.  MG relied on hard work and experience as a sailor; climbing, tying and rigging lines to execute his business plan of painting stacks, towers and bridges.  He quickly became the largest industrial painting and maintenance contractor in the tri-state area.

Incorporation & Expansion  

In 1959, after five years with MG, his son Steven T. Mosites Sr. recognized the opportunities in the general construction industry and founded Mosites Construction Company. One year later Donald Mosites, Steve’s brother, joined the company. In 1969, The Mosites brothers ventured into real estate and established the Development Division. This added venture has resulted in numerous contributions to the growth and prosperity of Western Pennsylvania.
Over the years, Mosites Construction & Development Company has expanded into one of the leading construction firms in the Greater Pittsburgh area. Under the leadership of M. Dean Mosites, Donald’s son, the business has continued to grow and succeed in an ever-evolving industry.  Learning from Moscos, a risk taker and inspiring leader, our company has resulted in one that is prepared to meet the challenges of the 21st century.
