R & K and Sons Construction are located at 7030 N. Tolles Rd. Evansville, WI. R & K and Sons Construction was formed in the spring of 1986 by Ralph & Kathy Crull. At the time Ralph was running a backhoe for a company installing sewer & water mains in Milwaukee. That company needed to hire someone to do clean-up work. Ralph took his old 600 Bobcat from his farm along with a 1954 Chevy 5 yard dump truck he had bought, and R & K was formed. For the next couple of years while still working for the larger company he picked up small jobs here & there.
In 1988 Ralph purchased a 1968 Poclan excavator, a 922 Car loader and a 1968 Mack Semi with lowboy trailer. With this equipment he started out on his own. The first year with the help of Kathy and part time help their son Sean who was still in school, they did some basements and work for local farmers. In 1990 when Sean joined the company fulltime they were seeing an increase in work. For the next several years R & K's reputation as a company that did quality work at a fair price grew, along with their business. In 1997 Ralph’s youngest son Jeremy joined the company. At this time the company was seeing a time of growth. R & K steadily expanded and updated its equipment along with their range of work. With both Sean and Jeremy acquiring their Master Plumber restricted Service licenses, they began doing septic systems on their own.
Septic systems have become a large part of our business. We can do everything from perc test to final installation. R & K designs all their systems. R & K has long believed that being diversified in the work that we do has been a key part of our success. While the work we have taken on has become larger in size, we are still glad to do even the smallest of jobs. Today at R & K and Sons Construction Kathy does the book keeping while Ralph, Sean, Jeremy, and three other fulltime employees run the wide range of equipment they now have. Because of our experience and array of equipment, no task or job is beyond our reach. We are capable of installing complete sub-divisions from start to finish, or simply fix a water hydrant. R & K and Sons Construction believe that one hundred percent customer satisfaction is important, and that is our goal.
