about Welty Development

 As part of the Welty family, Welty Development is part of the mantra “Build to Last.” Headquartered in Akron, Ohio, and working nationally, Welty has been serving the needs of clients throughout Ohio and beyond for nearly three-quarters of a century. Welty Development is a proud member of the Welty family.

At Welty, we bring emotional intelligence to our work that is unlike anything else in the industry. Our approach is founded on a willingness to defy doing things the way they have always been done in favor of doing what is the smartest, most efficient, most sustainable, and ultimately the most beneficial for our customers and the community they serve.

our story

Real Estate development is nothing new to the Welty. Don Taylor has been developing real estate projects for Welty Construction since 2005. Over the next 15 years, his development portfolio continued to expand and reached the stage of additional support. With the economic, construction, furniture, and facilities groups available through the Welty family of companies, he would create Welty Development. A company that would harnessed the power of Welty to facilitate better real estate deals.

In 2020, Don brought on Tom Charek, a successful construction veteran of the Cleveland/Akron markets. Charek’s well-respected reputation and proven track record for putting together successful projects was a natural fit to take Welty Development to the next level as WDC’s president.
