About Joseph Company

The Joseph Company has been a leading provider of construction services in the upper Midwest for over 56 years. We are very proud of our reputation for professionalism, quality workmanship and providing fulfilling vocations for over 40 employees. Our projects have won 15 "Awards of Excellence" from the Associated Builders and Contractors Inc. (ABC) of Minnesota.

We believe Joseph is uniquely qualified to serve as your lead contractor. We have five (5) Project Managers, seven (7) Field Superintendents and approximately thirty (30) Skilled Tradesmen. We typically self-perform all structural concrete, steel erection, carpentry, drywall and specialty work with our own forces, however sub-bids are considered on a project by project basis depending on quality concerns, schedule and economics. This means we can complete a major portion of the work with our own forces, thereby controlling costs, scheduling, and quality of workmanship.

The Joseph Company, Inc. has an annual bonding program of $70,000,000 and a single project bonding limit of $40,000,000.

Spirit of Excellence Award

"You did what you said you were going to do, when you were going to do it, for the amount you said it was going to cost, and you handled other aspects of the work appropriately. You are, and continue to be, the type of "professional" we respect and want to work with."

Joe Wagner and Dale Beckel started Joseph's Foundation of Excellence in 1965. From humble beginnings they BUILT a company with character through exemplary conduct and paying the price for a worthy goal. The goal was to BUILD quality structures; the price was hard work.

Joseph is a BUILDER. We possess the ability to perform multiple trades such as concrete forming and placement, structural steel erection, carpentry, plastering and millwright work. Our depth in the skilled trades enables Joseph as the primary employer on the construction site to meet client expectations with schedule, quality and price.

A high standard of excellence in the field is supported by depth in our Corporate Office with expertise in delivering Design-Build services. Joseph has internal skills to perform CAD design and budgeting to assure that pre-construction efforts are executed within time and budget goals.

Joseph has built a team prepared to successfully take our clients from concept to completion.

Joseph has grown to annual revenues in excess of $40 million and completed many award winning projects in several project categories.
