Teichert History

As the Sacramento region and Central Valley continue to grow, Teichert and our family of operations will be there when it all happens - as we have been for more than 120 years.

(View Our Timeline)

Adolph Teichert immigrated to New York from Germany in 1866, and he was recruited by the California Artificial Stone Paving Company in the 1870's.

The Teichert name can still be seen on many sidewalks throughout many neighborhoods in the region.


His craftsmanship was renowned, and some of his earliest work can still be seen in Golden Gate Park and near the Mark Hopkins Hotel in San Francisco.

He came to Sacramento to work on laying the sidewalks around the original State Capitol building. He then started his own business in 1887 by building walkways, cellar floors, sidewalks, fencing, and other projects.

Adolph was joined in the company by one of his four children, Adolph Jr., and the two of them grew the business. Additionally, they helped establish the Northern California Contractors Association - which later became the Northern California chapter of the Associated General Contractors of America.

Over the years, Teichert has grown into a diverse mix of businesses, most notably Teichert Construction and Teichert Materials.

Much like Northern California, we have grown exponentially over the past century, but we have maintained the same small-town, family-oriented environment.

And, with our commitment to our family of employees, high quality of work, strong customer satisfaction, and giving back to the community, Teichert will continue to flourish in the 21st century and beyond.
