Our commitment to quality, client service, and integrity has positioned us as a leader in the construction industry. Petry-Kuhne Company has been a Union Contractor over 90 years. During those years the employees have served on numerous industry boards to improve relations between labor and management and to promote the industry. Petry-Kuhne Company also has a wholly owned steel erecting division, Central Illinois Erectors.

The Petry-Kuhne Company, the successor of C.A. Petry and Sons, Inc., was formed on December 31, 1985 with the merger of C.A. Petry and Sons, Inc. and The Kuhne Company.

With its new ownership team, Petry-Kuhne is well-positioned to continue the long tradition of quality service to the Central IL Region long into the future.
