NJSA History

The New Jersey Subcontractors Association (NJSA), founded in October 1968, is a non-profit, membership, trade association representing subcontractors, specialty trade contractors and suppliers. NJSA is the only New Jersey construction association that concentrates exclusively on the business issues affecting all subcontractors, specialty trade contractors and suppliers. NJSA emphasizes needed reforms on such issues as prompt payment, retainage, surety bonding, lien rights, bidding practices and entitlement to payment.

NJSA consists of close to 200 individual firm members representing a broad cross section of specialty trade subcontractors throughout New Jersey. NJSA members work in electrical, mechanical, drywall, plaster, steel, masonry, painting, concrete, plumbing, roofing, excavating and nearly every other specialty trade in the construction industry. Members are also suppliers to the construction industry such as insurance, consulting & materials, - almost every construction industry need is offered through other members.

NJSA members are both union and non-union. NJSA members range in size from the smallest private firms to the nations largest specialty contractors. They represent some of the most accomplished specialty trade contractors in the business. All are concerned with improving their bottom line, providing a safe work environment and receiving prompt pay for work properly performed.

NJSA is unlike any other organization you may know about or belong to. No where else will you find others so willing to stand up for specialty contractor rights. No where else can you get so much timely, authoritative information. No where else can you come face-to-face with so many people who are working to change today's construction industry.

Chartered in 1968, the NJSA will celebrate its 41st Anniversary in the Fall of 2009, during the Annual Black Tie Awards Dinner Dance, held November 14, 2009 at the Sheraton Whippany.
