R & D Thiel's Image

It was Jacob Thiel who began the family tradition of quality workmanship and this gifted carpenter taught his six sons everything he knew about his trade. In 1955, Robert and Donald Thiel opened their doors for business as R&D Thiel, and from the start, R&D Thiel was a thriving family business with a heritage of working with wood. From this relatively modest beginning evolved one of the largest carpenter contracting, building material and housing component manufacturing firms in the country.
