Julius E. Kaaz, founder of Julius Kaaz Construction, began his career under guidance of his father, Julius H. Kaaz. He and his father, later, worked together on the design-build of Christ Lutheran Church in Columbus Nebraska completed in 1921. Julius E. Kaaz went on to form his own general contracting company. The work performed by this enterprising young contractor concentrated primarily on concrete and brickwork, while his wife, Lydia kept track of business affairs. Son-in-law, Eldon Luehring joined the business in 1945. Over the next ten years the size of projects and scope of work increased and additional employees were added to the team.
In 1957, J. David Kaaz (son of Julius E. Kaaz) began working for the business after serving in the military. In 1958, Marguerite (wife of Eldon) and JoEtta (wife of David) began performing accounting functions for the business. Julius Kaaz Construction Co., Inc. was incorporated in January 1959. Through their hard work and dedication business continued to grow and prosper. In 1979, Stephen L. Kaaz (son of David and JoEtta) joined the business. In 1984, Greg D.
