Contempri Homes was founded by Mr. Antoine Roy in 1928 as Roycraft Industries. The Contempri line which is the modular line started in 1965. In 1971, Mark IV Industries headquarter in Scranton, Pennsylvania purchased the company. At that time Mr. John A. Perry, Contempri’s current President, was the Corporate Treasurer at Roycraft and after the purchase by Mark IV, Mr. Perry was employed as the General Manager of the Contempri Factory in Scranton, Pennsylvania.
In 1978, Mark IV wanted to extend it’s Modular operations into the Midwest. Mr. Perry then transferred to Pinckneyville, Illinois to take the reins of the operation. At that time Mr. Larry Pericolosi joined up with Mr. Perry and the Contempri facility was operational. In 1982, Mr. Perry and Mr. Pericolosi purchased the assets from Mark IV and changed the corporate name to Contempri Industries, Inc. Today, Contempri has emerged as a leader in Modular building.
