ATLANTA, Georgia (May 24, 2022) – Epcon Communities—No. 56 on the 2022 Builder 100—has announced its entry into the Atlanta region, marking the fifth market for the builder’s corporate entity.
Epcon will hire approximately 12 to 20 people in Atlanta over the next few years, with plans to open the corporate office in the Roswell/Alpharetta area. The builder has already identified several potential sites for its first communities and plans to work toward building 200 to 300 homes per year in Atlanta, initially focusing on the northern suburbs.
“This new office marks the first time Epcon Communities has entered the Atlanta market as the corporate home builder,” says Phil Fankhauser, president and director of Epcon Communities. “We feel confident it will be a great fit for our fifth corporate market and look forward to continuing to expand our footprint across the country.”
Epcon Communities now builds in Columbus, Ohio; Indianapolis; Charlotte, North Carolina; Raleigh, North Carolina; and Atlanta, with additional metros on the horizon. Epcon also has more than 80 franchise builders that build in 24 states.
The company has hired Ted Turner to lead the Atlanta market. Turner most recently worked as vice president of land resources for Taylor Morrison and was previously senior vice president of land and vice president of land at Century Communities and PulteGroup, respectively. He has also worked at McCar Homes, D.R. Horton, and Beazer Homes in various land management roles.
“Ted has a lot of experience with various builders in the Atlanta market,” adds Fankhauser. “As regional president for Epcon’s new Atlanta office, he will be able to use his knowledge of the market to help us identify the best areas to build our communities in the right places.”
