Get to know Becker Construction
Bob Becker Construction began in 1965, and in fall 1997, Bob Grimm, Mike Bode, Jeff Richter and John Rasmussen partnered with Bob Becker as joint owners of Bob Becker Construction. When the four purchased a 1/3 of Bob Becker Construction shares they also purchased Vern Olson’s shares of Wesley True Value/Wesley Lumber. Later in 2002, Bob retired from the construction and lumber yard companies and sold his balance of shares to his partners. When the opportunity came to rent space for the Wesley Clinic they decided to drop the Plumbing, Electrical, Paint and the Bolt nut display, keeping the basic lumber yard inventory. Grimm passed away in 2009 and Mike Bode retired in January 2018. John and Jeff have four full time employees - Eric and Tom work inside and the outside crew consists of Brian and Guss.
Bob Becker Construction is fully insured and bonded as it has from day one. John’s duties include estimating, job bidding, contract negotiating, and waiting on customers. Jeff’s duties include job coordinating, building, erecting, concrete flat work and to finish work in all phases.
