In 2008, the Rifenburg Companies celebrated 50 years in business.
Founded by Ken Rifenburg, the company has evolved gradually over the years. In 1972, it had approximately 60 employees and its projects included many small New York State Department of Transportation projects.
Today, the Rifenburg Companies has grown to more than 350 employees and completes more than $90 million in projects annually for municipalities, state agencies, and private companies including industrial sites, commercial and residential developments, office parks, and more.
"Our father started the business with a dedication to customer service and high-quality work. Our reputation continues to be built on the satisfaction of our clients," says President George Rifenburg. "Our employees are all family, and every project we undertake is a labor of love."
Collectively, the Rifenburg Companies provides its clients with a wealth of experience and services, including, but not limited to, highway construction and restoration, site development, landfill technologies, environmental clean-up, utilities installation, mining, aggregate sales, equipment sales, leasing, and rentals, and airport maintenance and runway reconstruction.
"Our keys to success over the years," continued Mr. Rifenburg, "include respect and appreciation for our employees, emphasis on safety for all, and responsiveness to our customers."
