Meet Keith

Keith is the founder and Chairman of K.R. Swerdfeger Construction. He and his wife Sharon started the company in 1968. With a small bank loan and the drive for success, the young couple worked diligently at building a reputable company. Nearly 50 years later, Keith is still actively involved in the company. He believes in providing employees with a good wage and benefits to support a family and retire with a good pension. After a start in the water and sewer industry, he quickly realized that he would have to expand into gas and cable to be successful.

Today his company is sought after for the experience in all utility installation and sitework from municipal, federal and private utility owners in the region.
