Throwback Thursday (40th St.)
Kalkreuth Roofing and Sheet Metal of today descends from an industrial roofing and metal fabrication company—Kalkreuth Brothers—established in 1920. The family-run company focused on the heavy industrial business that lined the banks of the Ohio River during the mid-20th century.
November of 1984 marked the emergence of the company that we know today. John Kalkreuth, Chairman, and Jim Hurley, President/CEO, purchased the business with the vision that hard work, good people, and unwavering commitment would make Kalkreuth Roofing and Sheet Metal a success. The company grew consistently and over the years has become an industry leader, continuing to rank as one of the nation’s largest roofing contractors. 100 years later, Kalkreuth’ s success is a testament to the core values that are still a focus of the business today.
