A full service construction company; 100-200 employees; most projects are within 50 miles of Rockford.

Richard Adolph Sjostrom started the company in 1914.  By the 1940’s, all 5 sons, Bengt, Conny, Philip, Dick and Bill, were active in the business. “At one point, the company endeavored to raise 90 buildings on the base (Camp Grant) in 90 days.”
