- John Gilroy, Project Executive at Gilbane

“I wanted to take the time to tell you how incredibly impressed I am with your employees, specifically: Chuck Neumeyer, Jim Cefalu, Kurt Fies and the team they run. In my 26 years of service, working with several contractors, I have come to the determination that NO ONE compares or offers the above and beyond service that Grunau provides. While working at Metavante I was impressed with the Grunau Company and once I took my position with Johnson Controls at Miller Park, it was apparent to me, I needed to bring Grunau on board.”
- Luis V. Roche, Operations Supervisor/Miller Park at Johnson Controls, Inc.

“The fire protection system at the Flint Hills Resources Milwaukee Terminal offered some unique challenges to Grunau, and they performed exceptionally at every turn. The site restrictions and customer expectations could not have been any higher, and the Grunau personnel rose above the restrictions and led the effort to complete, commission, and train the Owner on a system that they were not familiar with. Performance specifications can often prove difficult with subcontractors that are not familiar with a design-build firm, but Grunau provided excellent services and delivered on their promise. It was a pleasure to have the opportunity to work with Eric Radke and the good people at Grunau.”
- Eric Kirchhofer, Project Manager at Burns & McDonnell

“I would like to extend a 'huge' thank you to the Grunau team for the effort that took place in fixing the water main break at our corporate headquarters.

- Ward Komorowski, Director, Facilities and Building Services at Johnson Controls, Inc.

- Steve Strzok, Facilities Services Manager at Metavante (now FIS)

His dependability, patience and overall demeanor when he is here is the best. I know he understands how stressful it is for us when the welfare of our animals is threatened, and his cool head and calm demeanor give us all confidence that any troubles will be resolved quickly and effectively.”
- Alex Waier, Bird Curator at Milwaukee County Zoo

“I wanted to express our thanks to Ken Bhatia and his team for their help with the problems we are having with one of our surgery HVAC units.

- Michael Pabich, Manager Plant Operations at Aurora West Allis Medical Center

“The crews that were out here for this [fire sprinkler lines and mains] job were very professional and a pleasure to work with. They communicated every step of the way letting us know of current progress, future plans and needs from us. They were very flexible in accommodating to our schedule and work environment. If a leak appeared outside of the specific area they were working in, they stopped and went to repair that leak immediately. Their craftsmanship appears to be very good also. Not that we hope to need their “repair” services too often, but if the need arises we look forward to working with Grunau Company again!”
- Bob Wright, Lean Operations Manager at BDA Inc., Plainfield, IN

“My thanks to you and your team on an outstanding effort in repairing the Veolia Water South Shore Interplant Sewer.

And showing up very quickly when called as the leak was discovered wont be forgotten quickly.”

- Richard J. Nierzwicki, Vice President of Operations at CG Schmidt, Inc.

“I wanted to express my appreciation for the flexibility that your crew showed during the equipment removal and placement for our Compound Management Services project at Sigma-Aldrich. Due to roof access constraints, the crew quickly shifted priorities and removed the exhaust fan before placing the make up air unit, which was the reverse of their original plan. Your guys were well prepared, accommodating, and did a professional job and they should be commended as such.”
- Gary Kok, Project Engineer at Sigma-Aldrich

“I don’t have a lot of experience with Grunau but have been using [them] over the past year for competitive quotes. They were always very competitive and I just signed a contract with them earlier in the year for all of my properties. They have been extremely responsive and diligent each time I have called. Great job, Gary Alexander, and thank you for keeping our tenant happy.”
- Tammy Long, Senior Vice President at Cushman & Wakefield, Indianapolis, IN

“All of your employees are very friendly, professional and a pleasure to work with!”
- Jim Karls, District Manager at Stericycle
