McMullen & Pitz Construction was founded in Manitowoc, WI, in 1918 when Oliver McMullen and Arthur Pitz partnered together to form a quality marine and heavy construction services company. The years immediately following were marked by continuous improvements to the surrounding community. This paved the way for decades of successful projects servicing the Wisconsin and Upper Michigan shorelines.
Eight years later in In 1926, Oliver McMullen sold his interest in the company to Emil Weber and retired to Florence County, Wisconsin, where he built a retirement home and maintained his involvement with marine construction, while Arthur Pitz remained with the company. Mr. McMullen passed away in Stambough, MI on August 9th, 1950.
Arthur H. Pitz continued the legacy by having his son Willot assume control of the company. Equipped with a degree in civil engineering, Willot Pitz picked up where his father left off. Years later, Willot Pitz’s son Erich joined the company as a general laborer and rose through the ranks to the position of Vice President. After Willot Pitz’s death in 1997, Erich became President of McMullen and Pitz Construction Company, and continues to serve in that capacity.
McMullen & Pitz Construction Company continues to be a family-owned and operated business with a rich history of providing marine and heavy construction services throughout Wisconsin and Upper Michigan.
