  • What they are saying…

    We used Kelchner because we had a time sensitive project that needed to be completed within two months of winter and we knew that Kelchner was the only contractor that could meet that deadline.

    I have had two great jobs with Kelchner and our two companies Clayco and Kelchner have just started a new project together in Texas.

    I could go on about Kelchner quality, staffing on projects and overall team player spirit.. But to summarize.. The biggest compliment I can pay to any company in my line of work is a simple one.

    I would work anywhere anytime with Kelchner on a project.
