Who We Are

From state-of-the-art construction to meaningful historic projects, Neumann Brothers has distinguished itself as a company that believes in restoring a community’s past, as well as improving its future. Our core values are the cornerstone of the Neumann approach to construction.

Our History

Neumann Brothers Inc. was founded in Des Moines in 1912 by Arthur H. Neumann. Arthur’s brothers joined the business soon after and began building a reputation for outstanding craftsmanship and setting the standard of excellence.

Our Values

Our mission is to be ‘The Standard of Excellence’ in the construction industry by delivering true craftsmanship and genuinely caring about our clients, employees, and the communities we serve.

  • Our People

    We value our people, who are true craftsmen, because without them we wouldn’t exist - it’s that simple.

    The people of Neumann are the reason we are able to build and maintain the standard of excellence in the construction industry. Without our team of dedicated, skilled, and passionate people, none of our work would be possible.
  • Genuine Caring

    We truly care about our clients, community and the industry.

    Construction projects are significant events. There’s a lot of anxiety that goes along with a building project. When you work with Neumann Brothers, you can be certain that we care as much about your project as you do. Our job isn’t finished until you’re happy with the result. We go the extra mile because we genuinely care.
  • Exceptional Service

    We focus on delivering exceptional service.

    A building project is so much more than performing work on a structure. Everything from transparent communication with Owners to fair and honest billing play a role in the success of a project. We’re experts at building and design. But we’re experts in customer service too.
  • Steadfast Commitment

    We are committed to keeping our promises.

    A personal commitment to excellence is the cornerstone of Neumann Brothers. Decades of consistent quality speaks to our personal commitment to the work we do and the value we place on craftsmanship. We are guided by a steadfast commitment to our values, our clients, and our company.
  • Uncompromising Integrity

    We do what is right and ethical.

    Integrity means that we do exactly what we say we’re going to do. A lot can change over the course of a project. But when you partner with Neumann Brothers, you can be certain that one thing won’t change: we always do what’s right.
  • Accountable for Excellence

    We hold ourselves to “the standard of excellence.”

    There’s a lot of uncertainty when it comes to choosing a contractor for your project. You want a team that takes ownership in their work and shares a commitment to a job well done. At Neumann Brothers, accountability isn’t a one-time occurrence. Our team is accountable every time, and that’s why we’re still in business today.

Meet the Team

Locally owned and centrally settled in Des Moines, the Neuman Brothers team of talented individuals continue to build on the foundation laid over 100 years ago.
