Arizona's Timeless Magazine

Distributing more than 5,500 copies every issue!

ACC magazine concludes our eighth year of publication with a special issue focused on the H & J Construction Co., one of the Valley’s most innovative mid-century construction companies. The business was started in 1949 on a shoestring budget by brothers, Harry and John Riskas. But 14 years later, when H & J Construction moved its operations from Phoenix to the Bay Area, the company had up to 1,500 employees on the payroll.

Magazines available via the ACC website or at Books on 7th Avenue in Phoenix,

or at the Ignite Sign Museum in Tucson.
