"The older I get, the less I consider what men say, but look at what they do." ~ Andrew Carnegie
Our beginnings are humble. In the late 1940’s, Wilmer Schultz made his entry into the construction industry by digging farm ponds, drainage ditches and basements for residential homes. As a returning World War II veteran, Mr. Schultz pursued his vision of a better life equipped with a bulldozer and a dump truck. His sole proprietorship grew, and within a few years he ventured into general contracting by forming Wilmer R. Schultz, Inc. By the mid-1950’s, Mr. Schultz took another step by founding the Nyleve Co. for the construction of bridges. By the late 1960’s, Mr. Schultz had integrated his organization into one of the finest general contracting firms in eastern Pennsylvania.
The reason for Mr. Schultz’s success is simple: He never strayed from his philosophy of putting people and principles before profits. Today, this guiding principle is maintained by Kevin and Scott Schultz, who have succeeded their father in the ownership of the business; as part of this succession, Nyleve Bridge Corp. was formed in 1987, the newest addition to the Schultz Organization.
Mr. Schultz believed that every executive and manager in his organization—including his sons—should have a first hand knowledge of what the tradesman faces in the field. The best way to gain this understanding is to have actually done the work (there are simply no other substitutes). From high to low, you will not find armchair quarterbacks managing the Schultz Organization.
Regardless of the job—a $60 million joint venture on the Pennsylvania Turnpike; a complicated factory shutdown; an elementary school; or affordable housing for senior citizens—the owners and staff of the Schultz Organization will continue their long standing tradition of taking each and every project seriously.
