Our History

In 1954 Bob Koetter Sr. and his wife Gladys started a small business framing houses. At that time, it was called "Bob Koetter Construction". In addition to framing houses, on nights and weekends Bob and Gladys worked their family farm in Floyds Knobs, Indiana all while raising their 5 boys.   

In 1971 a developer from New Albany, Indiana that Bob had been building houses for could not make his payments. Instead Bob was offered a truck, trailer, forklift, welder and a metal building franchise...and Koetter Construction started transforming into a Commercial and Industrial Contractor.

Now a second-generation family business, The Koetter Group is owned by all 5 of Bob & Gladys' sons, Phil, Jack, Kenny, Bob Jr. and Wayne. With their leadership along with seven third-generation employees, as well as many other dedicated employees, we still have ingrained in us the same honesty and integrity Bob & Gladys started with in 1954 and carried throughout their lifetime. What began in a little white two-bedroom house on Pete Andres Road 65 years ago, has grown through several renovations and office additions into what The Koetter Group has become today, still in the same location. 

One part of this growth process was the development of Koetter Building Services LLC. As the construction division of the company continued to build more and establish relationships with clients, we noticed there was a need for post construction maintenance. We wanted to provide services that would assist our clients with taking care of and maintaining their facilities to extend the life of their investment as well as continue to grow our relationship with them. Therefore, in 2010 Koetter Building Services was formed. Since then this division has grown to include the following 3 sub-divisions: Repairs and Maintenance, Fall Protection, and Remediation. 

Built on tradition and specializing in Construction, Real Estate and Building Services LLC, The Koetter Group has grown into one of the largest full service, design-build general contractors and commercial developers of Southern Indiana and the Greater Louisville Kentucky area. We have completed projects in manufacturing, industrial, educational, retail, religious, healthcare, offices, recreational, distilleries, as well as hospitality and entertainment markets. Our highly talented and experienced employees truly make the difference. From start to finish we are dedicated to quality construction and focused on customer satisfaction.
