Corporate Bio

Frerichs Construction was incorporated in August 1983 by Paul Frerichs in St. Paul, MN.  In the early years, Paul’s market focus was primarily commercial projects in the private and public sector as well as building for numerous retail chains.  In 1985, Paul hired Marv Kotek as a field superintendent.  In the mid 1990’s Marv left his position in the field and moved into the office as a Project Manager.  His aspirations did not stop there; he eventually became Paul’s business partner and held the position of company President, while Paul held to position of CEO.  In the late 1990’s and early 2000’s, we began to shift our focus away from the public sector to working with developers on private work.  The largest share of this work is multi-family projects; both renovation and new construction.

In 1993, Chris Zuspann began as an Estimator/Assistant Project Manager.  In 2007, Chris became Vice President and followed with President in 2013 after 20 years of dedicated work.  In 1996, Chad Olson was hired as an Estimator/Assistant Project Manager and within 13 years he became Vice President of Operations, then in 2013 became Vice President of the company.  Under Chris and Chad’s leadership, the company continues to flourish and grow, even through some of the toughest economic times since the 1930’s.  Currently, we employ an average of 75 employees and maintain an average volume of about $55 million per year.

The company continues to operate on the principles of honesty and integrity. The greatest testament to our success is our high volume of repeat customers that we serve. We continue to maintain these customers through commitments to quality, timeliness, and customer service.
