Bachmann Construction Company, Inc., was founded in 1954, by Fred and Ruth Bachmann. Fred and Ruth began their business together building cabinets from the basement of their home. Using his education as a carpenter and former member of the U.S. Army 19th Engineers, and her experience with hard work and diligence growing up on a farm, Fred and Ruth established a reputation of excellence and team work which has continued through the years.
Now the company has over 40 employees, performing $10,000,000 in construction projects annually.
In 1975, Al Bachmann started his career at Bachmann Construction, working first as a full-time Carpenter, then alongside his father as a Project Manager. Shortly thereafter in 1980, Diane and Fred Jr. joined the company working along side their parents, gaining experience and insight. In 2008 Fred Jr. left the company, and in 2015 Diane retired as CFO. Al is now CEO and sits on the Board of Directors, along with several other employees and family members.
And the third generation is hard at work as well. Naomi Kroth (nee Bachmann) is a Project Manager and VP, Noah Bachmann is a Carpenter and Engineer, David Bachmann is a Laborer. And they aren't the only ones. Several of our Carpenters and Laborers are second or third generation company employees, working hard to make the dream the founders built into reality a continued success.
“We have a generation of founders looking over our shoulders. We are driven to ‘build’ on the tradition of excellence they willed to us.” – Al Bachmann
