Berkel & Company Contractors has provided over 50 years of service to our customers. We have learned that it takes more than equipment and manpower to successfully complete a project. It takes vision and innovation.
From International Olympians to U.S. Presidents, most people, at some point in their life, have set foot on a Berkel & Company foundation. Founded in 1959, the company's entrepreneurial spirit and employee-driven passion for exceeding customers' expectations have made it the leader in the deep foundation industry. This continued success is rooted in its people, who strive each and every day to make Berkel & Company the best at what it does. Projects include Georgia's Olympic Stadium and many other stadiums throughout the country, the Pentagon, the World Trade Center site, entertainment venues, hotel resorts, casinos, power plants, and high-rise buildings in almost every major city in the United States.
Utilizing innovative processes such as Auger Pressure Grouted (APG) piling and APG displacement piling, Berkel & Company has promoted this technology throughout the U.S. and abroad, steadily making it the most dominant method in use in the deep foundation and building industry today. The world's largest and most successful engineering firms and contractors continue to partner with Berkel & Company to ensure safety and high quality of work for each project completed using this technology.
State of the art equipment and processes are a key competitive advantage for Berkel & Company, and the organization currently holds several patents. The majority of equipment used by Berkel & Company is invented and manufactured in Kansas City. With this in-house expertise, the equipment can be quickly replaced or repaired giving the company an edge over competitors.
In addition to the corporate headquarters in Kansas City, regional offices are located in Atlanta, Baltimore, Houston, Louisville, Orlando, San Francisco, and Washington D.C. Outside of the United States, Berkel & Company is involved with a number of projects in the Caribbean and continues to expand its growth opportunity globally.
The Berkel & Company Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) started years before most companies considered the concept. With employees participating in the ownership of the company, they have a vested interest in the organization and work hard to continue the legacy of exceeding customers' expectations through quality and innovation.
Berkel & Company takes great pride in giving back to the community. Most people never see the superior work of Berkel & Company because it is far beneath the ground. Like the nature of its work, Berkel & Company supports the community by very quietly providing a strong foundation to a number of charitable and nonprofit organizations.
