EMJ Corporation
The First Fifty Years
Chattanooga, Tennessee

For nearly half of its fifty years in business, EMJ Corporation served a single client in a single industry: mall developer CBL Properties (formerly Independent Enterprises and CBL & Associates Properties Inc.). The organizations worked closely and harmoniously, developing and building retail strip centers and enclosed malls throughout the country. 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.

From the outside, it’s almost like looking at two different EMJ Corporations. The first is a general contractor that served CBL exclusively, providing a level of outstanding service unique in the construction industry. The second is a burgeoning construction services company that continues to expand its horizons by looking at the industry in unconventional ways while turning challenges into new opportunities. Over the course of fifty years, EMJ Corporation has surpassed anything that the man who started it all, Edgar M. Jolley, could have imagined.
