WHO WE ARE
WHO WE ARE
Hunzinger Construction Company is a fourth generation, family-owned company that has continuously served the construction industry in Southeast Wisconsin since 1907. Founded in Iowa by brothers John, Frank, Fred, and Charles, who wanted to leave their farm lives behind, the company was called J.H. Hunzinger and Company. They began modestly by building one-room schoolhouses and homes using mule teams to do everything from hauling materials to digging basements. Twenty-one years later in 1928, one year before the stock market crash, Frank and Fred Hunzinger moved to Milwaukee and initiated their own construction firm – Hunzinger Construction Company. Together, they took on new projects, first building schools and churches, and later office buildings and manufacturing plants. Their survival and flourishing growth following The Great Depression years allowed the company to thrive and expand, completing projects from Minnesota to Texas.
Today, we are construction managers, general contractors and design/builders who have built and managed some of Wisconsin’s most notable and challenging projects. We embrace sustainability and green construction practices and pride ourselves on our superior quality craftsmanship, an exceptional safety record, and a drive to remain on the forefront of the most modern technology available in the industry. We have received numerous awards for outstanding project management, safety, engineering, concrete work, and core values, including the Marquette University Family Business Excellence Award for Core Values and being recognized as Employer of Choice by Wisconsin Builder magazine over multiple years. Hunzinger is the only Wisconsin firm to be listed every year on ENR’s Top 400 General Contractors in the United States since the inception of the list in 1964.
