Case Studies Commercial

Rabih Zahnan – Sorensen Gross Company

In 1913, Henry Ford developed his assembly line for mass production, famed for its efficiency. In the 1930s, Toyota took it a step further, developing a manufacturing production method—often referred to as LEAN—which not only limited waste and overproduction, but made it possible to create more variety of cars. Since then, the LEAN process has […]

RJ Kosadnar – Empyrean Benefit Solutions Inc.

Such a moving target, this responsibility of outfitting facilities for maximum production. So many factors affecting it, maybe especially so around the Texas Gulf Coast where hurricanes can be an annual event. But if Mother Nature becomes as unfriendly as in 2017, at least Empyrean Benefit Solutions is well prepared. RJ Kosadnar has seen to […]

Ronnie Mewengkang – Solomon Page

It’s bound to lift, or at least mitigate, this pandemic that’s so disrupted the world as we know it. But even if the risks of COVID-19 are deemed manageable enough for employees to return to work, Ronnie Mewengkang’s very proactive sanitation measures won’t rest. In just a few months, he’s come too far as facilities […]

Ric Reppert – R. L. Reppert

As a little kid taking car rides around town, Ric Reppert remembers his father Rick pointing out all the buildings that were built by his company. That allure might have worn off when, as a young child, Reppert pushed a broom around the Pennsylvania warehouse as his first job in the company. But sorting screws […]

Rick Cataffa – Federal Realty Investment Trust

Better days await the Old Keene Mill Shopping Center that everyone thought had seen better days in Springfield, Virginia. For like so many established shopping centers, some dating back to the 1970s, Old Keene Mill had taken on a tired appearance, even with Whole Foods as its anchor tenant and other national chains under the […]

Rabiah Brooken – Aptean

Professional change is tough. Whether you’re a seasoned executive advancing in your career or a young worker whose employer was recently acquired by another company, adjusting to new surroundings—physical, administrative or otherwise—can be a real challenge. Rabiah Reyome understands this better than anyone. After years of working with some of the country’s largest commercial real-estate […]

Rieber Contracting

Word of mouth goes a long way for Rieber Contracting, but social media may go even further in keeping the Council Bluffs, Iowa, siding company ahead of its competition. Working jobs throughout the Midwest, Southwest, and Pacific Northwest, CEO Jalon Rieber and Regional Sales Manager Bill Heydenreich say the company relies on its completed jobs […]

Restore Construction Group Inc.

It might be the finest residence in very exclusive Fisher Island: The 5100 Bayview Avenue condominiums, whose listings this past May ranged from $1.99 million for a two-bedroom unit to $10.5 million for a place that sleeps five. Mediterranean in style with white exteriors and red-tiled roofs, the high-rises line the perimeter of the wedge-shaped, […]

Ryan Hoke – The Exterior Company

Tens of thousands of companies apply to the very selective Inc. 5000 list. It’s hard enough to make it once, but making it twice is something fewer than one-third of all winners have accomplished. In Lancaster, Pennsylvania, however, the son of a contractor, who essentially grew up with a hammer and nails in his hands, […]

Roppe Corp.

How does a family-owned company in a small Heartland city get to be a global heavyweight in the competitive industry of rubber and vinyl commercial flooring while maintaining quaint in-house values that might seem more likely with a mom-and-pop operation? It’s a question that Dee Dee Brickner, marketing manager for Roppe Corp., never tires of […]
