Schildberg Construction Company began as a small, family-owned operation, founded in 1937 by E.F. Schildberg of Greenfield, Iowa.
Over the past 80-plus years, we have expanded, producing quality aggregate material for Southwest Iowa and South Central Iowa, as well as Northwest Missouri. These aggregate materials range from agricultural limestone to crushed rock for road maintenance.
While the company has grown into a large and widespread operation, we have remained a family firm in more ways than one — and that may be one of the keys to our long-term success.
From the beginning, management had been a family affair. E.F. Schildberg, as chairman of the board, took care of general coordination and looked after plant facilities. Sylvia Schildberg, E.F.’s wife, was generally in charge of record-keeping and office personnel.
Since E.F. and Sylvia, no fewer than three generations of the Schildberg family have worked within the company, helping grow the organization with an emphasis on family pride and work ethic. These ideals have naturally extended to the workforce and their families, with many children of Schildberg employees following their parents into the company.
