EMJ Corporation—The First Fifty Years is the history and story of a distinctive company and everything it took to get to where it is today. For nearly half of its fifty years in business, EMJ Corporation served a single client in a single industry: mall development. More recently, though, EMJ has engaged in a concerted effort to diversify, bringing an array of new clients into the fold and finding great success in a variety of market sectors, from industrial and hospitality properties to healthcare facilities and office buildings. It also has added a number of subsidiaries and standalone companies to the EMJ family. Over half a century, EMJ Corporation has surpassed anything the man who started it all, Edgar M. Jolley, could have imagined, with over 280 million square feet of construction projects completed nationwide.
