It is with great pleasure I introduce you to our newest members with the De Pere Area Chamber of Commerce. Founded in 1961, Immel Construction has been in business for nearly 60 years servicing industries from Commercial to Industrial, Municipal to Historic, Education to Healthcare and more. With their 60-year anniversary right around the corner, Immel is gearing up for 2021 with a handful of fun activities and celebrations.
Immel is an industry leader in providing construction services of the highest quality, consistently delivered to customers throughout the Midwest, by people of integrity who are passionate in what they do. “We live and breathe our Core Values of Safety, Craftsmanship, Integrity, Transparency, Community, and Reliability on every jobsite, client interaction, community we touch, and everything in between”.
In the midst of a worldwide pandemic and national worries, Immel Construction has found ways to not only retain employees but to add a handful of new talent as well. In the last few months, they have added new faces to their Field, Estimating, and Business Development teams.
How did you come up with your name?
Howard Immel, Inc. has been our legal name since the firm’s founding, stemming from our very own founder, Howard Immel. Now known as Immel Construction, we have had a tight knit group of people leading the company to victory including two generations from the Immel family and two generations of long-standing, valued employees. Immel has grown into more than just a name over the decades and is now 100% employee owned through an Employee Stock Ownership Plan.
What are your thoughts on Chamber membership?
There’s a lot to get out of any chamber membership if you’re willing to put effort into it. We appreciate the De Pere Area Chamber’s efforts to strengthen its business members and the De Pere Community as a whole.
What Chamber activity, event, program or initiative are you most excited/intrigued about?
The State of De Pere event has been very well received and a great event to attend. The Business Walk is a terrific business retention strategy and joint partnership to uncover business concerns.
