Our company is built upon its people.
The Krempp family traces its first public construction project to 1877 when Andrew Krempp was awarded a contract of $149.00 for the grading of East Sixth Street in Jasper. In 1879, Andrew was awarded the $500.00 contract for grading the public square in Jasper. Now in the 5th and 6th generation, the Krempp’s continue to construct quality public and private buildings throughout Southern Indiana as Krempp Construction, Inc.
Here at Krempp Construction, we are very proud of our long history of successfully completed projects. We have enjoyed working together with owners, architects, engineers, subcontractors and suppliers to complete these projects on time and within budget, utilizing our team approach. We have a very experienced management team and workforce who have handled difficult jobs time and time again. We take great pride in watching a piece of ground go from nothing to a beautifully finished product, and look forward to the next generation providing our customers with a quality project that works for them over the long term.
