John Karman of Business First Magazine recently spoke with one of Koch Corporation’s owners, Benjamin Feinn, about how the company is faring in the current economic conditions. Benjamin Feinn explained that “For Koch, coping with the recession has meant bidding aggressively on public projects and relying on long-standing relationships with other contractors and suppliers.”
Koch has added drafting services and in-house engineering to it’s long list of other services to keep the company profitable. The company recently made a decision to more aggressively pursue it’s local scope, giving them the opportunity to invest more in its local community as well as give its employees more time at home with family. “Keeping good employees is essential to Koch’s success” and Benjamin Feinn says in the article about his employees, “We’ve got a lot of old lunch boxes here.”
Even though the construction sector hasn’t fully recovered from the recession, as always, Koch Corporation is continuing to give the excellent service and workmanship that it has always done for the past seventy-seven years.
