Testin Works with Wisconsin Rapids Based Altmann Construction on Stevens Point Project
STEVENS POINT — Sen. Patrick Testin (Stevens Point) recently joined workers from the Wisconsin Rapids based Altmann Construction Company for the third installment of his regular “On the Job” series.
Founded in 1982 by Ed and Lois Altmann in the basement of their home, Altmann Construction has grown to employ nearly 50 people who do award-winning work. They’ve been recognized for quality, safety, and innovative design by several groups, including the Associated Builders and Contractors of Wisconsin (ABC), the Wisconsin Ready Mixed Concrete Association, and the Daily Reporter.
During his day on the job, the Senator framed up, constructed, and erected exterior walls in the process of putting in a full day on the Stevens Point jobsite.
“The men and women at Altmann Construction work hard every day, and we can see the products of their labor in buildings all over Central Wisconsin,” said Sen. Testin. “I’m grateful to have been able to work on this Stevens Point project, and to contribute in a small way to the company’s ongoing thirty-five year tradition.”
“We appreciate Senator Testin’s hands on approach,” said Tom Altmann, Vice President of Altmann Construction. “It was a good opportunity to show Senator Testin the ins and outs of how we operate on a construction site, and our employees’ commitment to getting the job done right.”
Later this month, Senator Testin will be “On the Job” with Riverfront Inc. in Sparta to help support people with disabilities.
