The Tuscaloosa, Alabama-based home building company, Builders Group of West Alabama, has been included in the top 200 house builders in the U.S. based on the rankings posted by the trade publication, “Builder.” The inclusion of the company to the 2010 list makes it the second successive year that Builders Group has been included among the best builders of the country.

Builders Group came in at 195 in the yearly ranking of the magazine. The rankings were based on companies’ 2009 performance. Each firm was evaluated using several parameters, including the number of houses sold during 2009 and the gross revenue recorded by each builder. The latest rankings will be published in the May 2010 issue of the periodical. “Builder” is published by the National Association of Home Builders.

According to the profile for the Tuscaloosa firm, a total of 60 closings were conducted by Builders Group in 2009. The company also posted revenue of $13 million during the same year. The builder occupied a slightly lower ranking than the previous year when it came in at 168 in the list based on 2008 performance. It had a total of 107 closings and a $21 million revenue for 2008.

Looking at the firms included in the 2010 list, a trend can be seen in terms of earnings and projects finished. Majority of the ranked companies experienced fewer closings and lower revenues compared with 2008 performances. The magazine admitted that 2009, the year from which the 2010 rankings were based, had been a difficult period for the house building industry.

Despite the lower ranking, officials of the Alabama home building company stated that they were pleased that Builders Group had been recognized for its work on the national level. They added that the company is highly honored to be included in the list when it is more a locally focused business than most builders included in the list.

Executives from Builders Group also admitted that, because of the economic difficulties of 2009, the company had to carefully monitor its operations and keep careful tabs of its costs and supplies. Despite the challenges, officials of Builders Group stated that they never sacrificed the company’s mission of providing quality products and services to customers. They further added that 2010 will still be a difficult year for the industry, but they are optimistic that 2011 will herald a recovery period for the residential building market.

Builders Group was established in 2001 by Wendell Barton and Lynn Corder. The two men are partners in the firm, along with other members of the Corder family. The firm has built around 750 houses in West Alabama and in Columbus, Mississippi for the past 10 years. The building business has also developed subdivisions, built commercial buildings and has gone into house remodeling.

The Tuscaloosa based home building company of Builders Group of Alabama has managed to be included in the top 200 building firms of the U.S. for the second successive year despite the challenging situation of the house construction market. Officials at the company believe that the remaining months of 2010 will remain difficult, but they also predicted that the coming of 2011 will start the revival of the housing market.
