In 1884, A. C. Busk founded a small masonry construction company in Omaha, Nebraska. By 1887, the business was providing general contracting services to the area. In 1920, Roy M. Lueder joined the firm, eventually acquiring full ownership in 1939. A year later, Roy’s son, Robert G. Lueder joined the company and the name was officially changed to Lueder (pronounced “Leader”) Construction Company.
2000 – R. Brad von Gillern is named President of Lueder of the firm and several years later acquires minority ownership. Currently, von Gillern leads a number of key employee-owners in the management of Lueder Construction Company.
2017 – Greg Key is named President of Lueder Construction and R. Brad von Gillern becomes the CEO.
Today, Lueder Construction is a multi-faceted, full-service general contractor with annual revenues of $70 – $80 million. We service our clients through a staff of full-time project managers, administrative professionals, field superintendents and 30-60 field employees.
The Lueder story is indeed a study of growth and progress. The familiar gray and blue project signs bearing the Lueder name on buildings at various stages of construction throughout the greater Omaha and surrounding areas are a testament to the success of Lueder Construction Company.
The building landscape is evidence to Lueder Construction’s presence and longevity in the Omaha area. We have worked for every school district in the metropolitan area; major retailers such as The Nebraska Furniture Mart; secondary education institutions such as Iowa Western Community College and the University of Nebraska-Omaha; religious entities such as the Salvation Army; and many others such as the Nebraska National Guard, the Omaha Public Power District, and the Creighton University Medical Center.
