Our Story

WBI was founded in 2015 with the mission to become WNY’s premier construction firm. Our goal is to let our workmanship, professionalism, and experience allow us to be a part of Buffalo & WNY’s rapid growth. With over 35 years of experience in the construction industry we feel it is our moral obligation to help the construction industry with our work which we believe to be the best quality of construction available.

Now our reputation for excellent work and our relationships within the industry have allowed us to expand our core business scope. We now serve as an all-in-one construction firm. From several areas of design, all types of installations, and all areas of management, we can get the work done the way it is supposed to be done. We are fully integrated into the WNY community as one of the area’s fastest growing construction firms. We are constantly developing new areas of expertise, exploring new markets, trying new products with installation, and finding the best way to deliver our customer’s a job done right.

Our founders have unique backgrounds. Frank Willett has experience in all areas of construction prior to Willett Builders. He has worked over 15 years in the field as an apprentice, journeyman, foreman and supervisor. He is also an engineer that has worked as a design-build manager, and a fabrication manager. In addition, Frank has served as a construction manager for some of the biggest firms in the industry. Frank has been a part of over $150 million worth of construction projects in his career prior to Willett Builders. Ryan Willett’s prior experience in the construction industry was primarily in project management. He has worked on projects of all size and scope across the US. Ryan has served as a PM for projects totaling over $40 million all together in various industries such as commodities, health care, aerospace and many other public & private sectors. Ryan also has over 7 years of entrepreneurial experience prior to Willett Builders. He previously ran a successful sales & advertising business in the greater NYC area specializing in technology and energy brands.

Ryan and Frank felt that their combined experience in construction and business would ultimately create the recipe for what will become a multi-faceted construction firm with tremendous growth potential. Our goal is to serve WNY and beyond for many years to come. We pride ourselves on our vast knowledge base, our efficiency, and maneuverability. We welcome all challenges and we look forward to delivering successful projects of all kinds to our customers.
