How It Started and Who We Are

     Gethmann Construction is a General Contractor with the capability to provide complete construction services for industrial clients. Gethmann's professional management of craftsmen and equipment, plus their proven construction methods, have made Gethmann's goal of "completing quality projects on time and within budget" a reality. This is the foundation of the company's success.

     The Gethmann name has been synonymous with the construction industry since 1892 with the formation of the Gethmann Brick Company. Operations were based upon "Old World" standards of integrity and craftsmanship. From these early beginnings evolved the Gethmann Construction Company which was founded in 1934 by Kenneth W. Gethmann. Gethmann Construction, Inc. (GCI) was incorporated in 1937. With an original work force of only a few people, GCI has grown to a multi-million-dollar business with several corporate affiliations and a diversified work force in all construction trades. Throughout the changes encountered over its history, GCI has maintained its dedication to sound and responsible construction management to provide a safe workplace and high-quality construction.

     For more than 80 years, GCI has been building everything from small residential additions to large industrial complexes. This progressive success story is built on GCI's craftsmanship coupled with effective management. It takes skill and experience in all fields, including earthwork, concrete, masonry, carpentry, ironwork, equipment, and project supervision. It is also important to have good people involved to manage and provide support services to a project. GCI is proud of its working base of qualified personnel which includes Safety Managers, Architects, Engineers, CAD Operators, Estimators, Project Managers, Equipment Mechanics, Accountants, Administrative Assistants, IT Technicians and Project and Business Development Executives. At GCI, our people are our most important resource, so we reward our employees for safety, hard work and high productivity. This base of professionals, coupled with a work force that will complete your project on time and within budget, allows GCI to emerge as a leader in today's competitive construction market.

     GCI also prides itself in building relationships. Our management works closely with clients to help analyze needs and develop a practical approach from concept to completion. The clients literally become an integral part of the business, and it's GCI's high standards of integrity and service that watch out for the client's best interests. It is also GCI's personal commitment to customer satisfaction that builds working relationships and clear project understanding. Gethmann Construction, Inc. not only builds long lasting facilities, but we also build long-term relationships.

     That's why GCI's long-standing reputation stands the test of time. Seventy percent of GCI's business comes from repeat customers who value the company's strong ethic of safety, quality, and service.
