In 1946, T. J. Rentenbach established our firm in Knoxville, Tennessee, after serving for many years in a leadership role with the United States Army Corps of Engineers. Mr. Rentenbach’s vision for our firm was to blend the integrity and competence of the professional engineer with the proficiency and talent of the skilled craftsman. From the very early years of the firm, Mr. Rentenbach stressed the importance of high quality and timely performance in the work bearing his name.
Adhering to the principles of our founder, Rentenbach Constructors has grown into a construction services firm that provides general contracting, design-build, and construction management services in a variety of market sectors. Over the decades, our firm has also expanded geographically. We now serve clients throughout the Southeast, Southwest, and Midwest from offices in Tennessee, North Carolina, and Texas.
Mr. Rentenbach’s vision has produced a construction success story. By providing consistent, high levels of service through conscientious employees, our firm has consistently obtained over 75% of its business from repeat clients. We have steadily ranked among the nation’s “Top 400 Contractors” and have been the recipient of many prestigious regional and national construction awards.
Regardless of our success, we have never forgotten that we are only as good as our last project. True to our founding principles, we strive for consistency and client satisfaction, and we are devoted to maintaining our reputation and good name in the marketplace. Clearly, “Building with Integrity” is more than our slogan—it is how we do business.
