KRUSINSKI'S FAMILY AFFAIR
This isn't the first recession Krusinski Construction Company has been through. Brothers Joe and Jerry Krusinski, the oldest and youngest of five siblings, founded the company more than 36 years ago and have now expanded to 35 employees. We snapped this of Joe, Andy Johnson, Joe Krusinski III, Jeff Moecher, and Steve Moeller after a leadership meeting Monday. The company originally started with industrial projects, but branched out into healthcare, office, and institutional products throughout the Midwest. One of its biggest today is the Pronger-Smith medical office in Tinley Park, a two-story, 32k-SF structure attached to an existing campus.
A few more Krusinski guys: Jeff Krusinski, John Brady, Jerry Krusinski, and Jim Wilkinson. Three of Joe's four children (Joe, Gina, and Jeff) work for the company, but they all came in being supervised by employees other than family. They tell us the company has stayed afloat during the recession by encouraging education and certification, like LEED-AP or ASHE. Becoming experts at pre-construction technologies, like BIM and AutoCad, has also helped. The company's Oak Brook office has a training and video conference room for its employees to stay in touch with each other and other members of the Citadel Group, a network that helps Krusinski with projects throughout the region and country.
