THE MAN BEHIND THE COMPANY
A product of
California’s Central Valley, Allen
Grant grew up in his family’s
construction business, and early on
developed a reputation for building
high quality products at affordable
prices through “value engineering”.
his own construction company, Allen
earned a reputation as a winning
international sports car driver.
Member of the world-champion
Shelby-Ford-Cobra Racing Team, Allen
carried that “winning tradition”
with him when he returned to Modesto
to enter the homebuilding trade.
In 1975, Allen was
honored as “Builder of the Year”.
He quickly went on to establish
himself not only as a leader in
residential construction, but in
commercial and industrial
development as well.
perfectionist, Allen remains
personally involved in every project
Grant Development Company
undertakes. He frequently makes
analogies between his real estate
projects and his past racing
experience – a past he has now
brought “full circle” by reuniting
with his boyhood friend George Lucas
to co-sponsor Lucasfilm Racing
Team. Whether entering a race or
breaking ground on a new building,
the requirements are virtually the
same: the long and careful planning,
the need for precise timing and cost
accounting, and the superior
execution of the finished project.
That, in a name, is
Grant Development Company.
