Who We Are & Our History

Established in 1959 by Abram K. Penner and his two sons, Penn-co Construction began as a small farm-based logging operation near the village of Blumenort which is approximately thirty miles southeast of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. In the 1980’s and 90’s, Ernie Penner expanded Penn-co to new locations throughout Canada and the United States, including Calgary, Toronto, Minneapolis, and Raleigh. Although the head office has always been in Blumenort, Penn-co has successfully completed projects from Ontario to British Columbia as well as in Minnesota, Nebraska, and North Carolina.

Dan Reimer joined Penn-co in 1988 as a project superintendent and moved into the office as a project manager in 1999. He upheld Ernie Penner’s legacy by driving Penn-co forward with a vision towards excellence and growth. Today under Dan’s leadership and vison, Penn-co is adding more employees, equipment, technology, projects, and expanding its territory. We have built relationships throughout the industry and are a trusted and preferred contractor across many provinces and territories. We look forward to putting this experience to work for you.
