More About JR&CO
It all started in the small town of Le Mars Iowa when John (JR) and Kristi Schuller established JR Roofing as a sole proprietorship.
Move To The Big City
Expanded the service area to Kansas City, Missouri, Incorporated and changed the name to JR & Co., Inc.
The next 12 years included steady growth and developng our reputation in the Kansas City metro area.
The Great Canadian Adventure
JR & Co. Inc expanded again and this time it was international! While visiting family in Saskatoon, Sasketchawan JR noticed the impressive growth of the area and the need for an experienced commercial single-ply roofing contractor. Being a man of adventure JR packed up and headed north to start a new company.
A New Leader Emerges
In JR’s absence, his protege and “son he never had” Jonathan Schilling, took the reigns and began to manage the day to day operations of the company.
A Change In Ownership
Jon began the process of purchasing the company from John and Kristi. He immediately began instilling the values that he learned in the Army and from JR at every level of the company, transforming it from a "what" company to a "why" company. Also, a sheet metal division was added into the mix.
Expansion Into Sunny Florida
Hurricane Irma rocked the South Westcoast of FL and one of our Storm Damage Restoration contacts invited us down to assist them with a massive project on an upscale senior living community. Due to the duration for the project it was necessary for us to start an office in the area and develop a local presence.
Headed To The Mountains
JR & CO was selected for a large 5 year federal contract for Ft. Carson just outside of Colorado Springs. The level of management needed to fulfill a contract of this size, made it a necessity to start another new office. In addition, Tenant Finish was added to our ever growing list of servcies.
Into The Future
Addition of the solar installation division and continued growth across all branches and departments. From our humble beginnings in small town Iowa with only a handful of employees to now over 300 employees and 3 Locations. Who knows what the future has in store?
