Message from President

Today’s economy places large burdens on our customers, whether public or private. They are expected to provide services or products to the end-user for less cost, while experiencing ever increasing costs for labor and materials. Our mission is to help our customers meet these challenges by providing the project management services required to minimize cost and maximize gain. We have tailored our services to meet this goal.

For the past several years we have experienced increased negotiated sales – most from repeat customers. This is evidence of our commitment to the principles of honesty, integrity, good business sense and, above all, dedication to employees. The future is bright. We have grown the company to one which works throughout the Midwest and offers all the services needed to plan, finance, design, and construct the facilities required by our customers.

Stan Kaczmarek, President
