In 1897 Theodore I. Bogner started work as a carpenter in his hometown of Wooster, Ohio.
In 1913, he joined forces with a masonry contractor, forming the highly successful general construction firm of Bogner & Long. This firm worked throughout north central Ohio on a wide range of projects until 1929.
From 1929 until 1946, Theodore Bogner was “his own boss.” In late 1945 Mr. Bogner's sons, Richard and Robert, joined him in business after their tours of duty in World War II. Theodore Bogner and Sons, Inc. was one of the outstanding general construction firms in Ohio for the next 33 years. Their geographic range encompassed the entire state of Ohio.
In 1979, it was merged into Bogner Construction Company as the third generation of Bogner’s assumed leadership of the firm. With this management change, came a new sense of direction as the firm rapidly branched into Construction Management and Design-Build.
Now in its fourth generation, Bogner Construction Company has continuously refined its approach to Construction and Program Management, providing services to governmental, institutional, educational, commercial, and industrial clients throughout the United States.
