Our History – an Experienced General Contracting Firm
Maas Brothers Construction, Co., Inc., is one of Wisconsin’s oldest and most well-respected general contracting firms. Founded in 1922 by brothers Albert W. and Alvin (Ollie) Maas in Watertown, the growing construction business survived the Great Depression and thrived during the post-World War II construction boom. In the 1940s, Albert’s sons, Earl and Albert Jr., joined the family business. Together, they ran the company from 1949 until their retirement in 1990. Earl’s son, Robert Maas, took over management of the company in 1990.
The company expanded its operations throughout the 1990s under Robert’s direction, with considerable contributions from Daniel Shea and Douglas Beilke, who are 2nd-generation members of the Maas Brothers team, and Kevin Kohlhoff. Today, as we approach the company’s 100thanniversary, Maas Brothers continues to grow and evolve in an ever-changing construction industry. Together, our team brings decades of construction experience to the business. Thanks to our longstanding reputation for providing quality construction work, many long-term clients—including some dating back to the 1940s and ‘50s—continue to choose Maas Brothers Construction.
In addition to construction management, Maas Brothers self-performs a variety of trade work, including rough and finish carpentry, concrete and selective demolition. Supplying our own trade professionals helps us control quality and timelines to deliver projects on schedule and within budget.
Over the years, Maas Brothers has developed a strong network of construction industry relationships, including architects, engineers, vendors and subcontractors. These connections lead to better value engineering, lower subcontractor and vendor pricing, and maximum efficiency on projects of all types and sizes.
