  • 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.

    Seth G.
    Project Manager

    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.
