Our history

It all began in a small garage in 1949…

John Bolton and Martin Menk saw people in their surrounding communities who had dreams of a bright future, a desire to grow, and a common challenge of aging infrastructure. Their ultimate goal was to help communities make progress by listening to what people want, finding the best solutions for their needs, and treating them right.
