BAUCOM GROUP & ASSOCIATES AND
A1 GLASS AND ALUMINUM
CHARLOTTE

Having grown up in an entrepreneurial family, Walter Baucom is keeping the tradition alive by developing businesses that are benefiting from North Carolina’s continued growth.

His Baucom Group & Associates is a general contracting firm that handles a wide variety of commercial and residential remodeling and new-construction projects. Since 2007, he’s been a co-owner with Jason Martel of A1 Glass & Aluminum, which has supplied materials for more than 400 buildings, including apartments, shopping centers, schools and office towers. Most of the company’s work is in the Carolinas, though it has handled projects in Southern states ranging from Virginia to Louisiana. About 90% of its glass and aluminum work involves new construction.

About 60 people work for A1 Glass, which he says has succeeded because of good relationships with general contractors and providing top-notch client service. Baucom, 47, says his parents have been his key mentors.

Asked about the favorite part of his work, Baucom says it’s “seeing how all divisions of our company collaborate to not only acquire business but work closely with our clients to meet their goals to achieve long-standing relationships.”

While higher interest rates and inflation are affecting the economy, Baucom says he’s optimistic that demand for construction will remain solid in the Carolinas over the
next year.

In addition to his own businesses, the Charlotte native has become a leader in promoting advancement of Native Americans. He’s a member of the Lumbee Tribe and a leader in the Metrolina Native American Association, which serves more than 10,000 members in the Charlotte metropolitan area. He’s also a board member of the N.C. Commission of Indian Affairs. ■
