The Duininck Story
Over 80 years ago, in the Dutch farming town of Prinsburg, Minnesota, brothers Henry, Amos, and Wilbur Duininck first entered the road construction business. Little did they know they were embarking on a remarkable journey that would lead their small company, not only to the corners of Minnesota, but to the ends of the Earth.
Early on, the three Duininck Brothers built the foundations of Minnesota’s highway infrastructure; growing with the industry, progressing from horses and mules to heavy machinery and modern surfacing techniques. Even in the beginning, Duininck values and principles were the company’s guiding beacon.
Since then, each subsequent generation has left their mark on the portfolio. The second generation of Duinincks expanded the company into new geographical markets, and focused on diversification. As they saw a need, they operated with enough flexibility to encourage the independent leadership to take risks and to flourish. New divisions were added or created, strengthening and growing the company.
Today, the third generation leads the company into the future, adding technology, marketing, and modern equipment to the Duininck toolbox. Still steeped in the tradition of their fathers and grandfathers before them, the Duininck vision and values remain central to the company’s growth strategy and ways of doing business. The same way Henry, Amos and Wilbur did it over 80 years ago.
