Company Background

In the mid 1940's, Juel Market and Milt Johnson worked for Walker Brothers Construction constructing homes predominately in the Eau Claire area. In 1948, they decided to form their own company to construct homes. In 1952, the first commercial project that Market & Johnson constructed was the high school in Altoona, Wisconsin. By 1956, the transition had taken place, the company evolved from home building to commercial construction.
  first M&J house
Market & Johnson's first project was a residential home in Eau Claire, Wisconsin
with construction costs totalling $11,271.

In 1964, Milt Johnson decided to sell his portion of the firm to Juel Market and start his own business in Montana with his two sons. In the same year, Marv Market joined the firm upon graduation from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. Marv's brother, Dan, joined him in 1970. Market & Johnson operated as a family business until early 2000 when Dan Market offered ownership opportunities to four key employees; Steve Breitenfeldt, Don Carlson, Ron Dulitz, and Gary Carlson--all have since retired and Jerry Shea, Jason Plante, Kevin Renley, and Mike Seichter have joined the ownership team. The new ownership team has maintained our small town family atmosphere and has added many years worth of experiences to it. The original principles of the company were quite simple...... they were to complete the job in a timely fashion, maintain the highest quality that can be achieved and do the project right the first time. These principles have remained with the company throughout its existence, and continue to be the guiding principles for the firm.

The firm has experienced a steady rate of growth throughout the years, initially having annual sales of about $200,000. By 1990, the sales grew to $19 million, and today we are western Wisconsin's largest contractor.

In 1995, an office was established in La Crosse, Wisconsin, by purchasing an existing general construction company and in 2013 we expanded again by opening an office in Oakdale, Minnesota. The sales volume and number of customers has grown substantially. A large commitment has been made to enlarge the area served by Market & Johnson, Inc. and still maintain the reputation earned throughout many years of construction.

Today, Market & Johnson, Inc. is a premier general contractor/construction manager in western Wisconsin. Not only is Market & Johnson the largest contractor in the area, but it is also known as the highest quality contractor in western Wisconsin. Market & Johnson also has a solid reputation for getting our projects done on time and within the project budget, which goes right back to the original principles on which the company was founded.

Ownership Team
The ownership team is actively involved with the firm.
In 1948, Market & Johnson was founded on the principles of providing high quality construction services with honest and ethical business practices. This philosophy emphasized the importance of quality employees and maintaining a family style atmosphere.

The owners of Market & Johnson continue this same approach. The ownership team, led by Dan Market, is actively involved with every aspect of the firm and ensuring that the values that the company were founded on are still the foundation of our company.

Community Involvement
Market & Johnson is very committed to the communities that support our firm. Our employees are actively involved with many community groups throughout western Wisconsin. Hundreds of hours annually are spent with groups such as the United Way, Big Brothers Big Sisters, area Rotary Clubs, Chambers of Commerce, University Foundations, as well as many others.

The importance of supporting the community is evident by the level of involvement in which our firm participates. In addition to volunteering, Market & Johnson also supports our community groups financially. On average, our firm donates approximately 2% of our net income to our community.

Our firm is also very active within our industry organizations. Market & Johnson has been an active member of the Associated General Contractors of Wisconsin (AGC of Wisconsin) as well as other construction related groups. Taking a leadership role in the direction our industry is heading is not only important to Market & Johnson, but also to the clients that we serve.
