a family foundation with strong work ethics

Kraemer Brothers is Formed By Three Brothers with Aspirations

In 1948 America was in a state of rebirth and rebuilding. With World War II over, people across the nation were eager to resume their lives and reinvent their destiny. Three veterans looking to carve out their own successful future were Norm, Alfred and Linus Kraemer. They teamed up to begin a small construction business in their hometown of Plain, Wisconsin. From building picnic tables for the State of Wisconsin to doing repair work for Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin, their first projects were modest in scope. But with a strong work ethic and a dedication to customer satisfaction, it didn’t take long for their company and their reputation to grow.

With stone masonry and wooden arch framing, St. Boniface Church in Lime Ridge, Wisconsin was their first large project. The post-war baby boom increased the demand for schools, and in the ensuing years Kraemer Brothers had as many as four school projects running simultaneously. Soon, projects of all kinds came in as the young company developed a reputation for competitiveness, delivering on promises and excellent craftsmanship.

As Kraemer Brothers has grown over the years, the firm’s commitment to its principles has never wavered. Still located in the small town of Plain, the company has not lost its roots and continues to earn unparalleled customer satisfaction by being competitive in a fast-paced industry. Kraemer Brothers’ breadth of experience and expertise is larger than its founders could have ever imagined. In the hospitality industry, Kraemer Brothers is among the nation’s top builders, and the firm continues to serve long-time clients in a variety of industries, including healthcare, biotechnology, office, food and dairy manufacturing, retail and gaming.

Continuing to build on a family foundation, succeeding generations of Kraemers have joined the company. They are found in every division of the company’s operations, from the carpentry crew to field and office management. Keeping to the same customer satisfaction and small-town values Kraemer Brothers started with, the company’s talented and dedicated workforce year after year ensures the continuation of the integrity, craftsmanship and speed Kraemer Brothers is known for.
