tradition of quality from a family
of dedicated carpenters
It was Jacob Thiel who began the family tradition of quality
workmanship. This gifted craftsman taught his six sons everything
he knew about his trade. In 1955, Robert and Donald Thiel
opened their doors for business as R&D Thiel, and were soon
joined by their brothers Thomas, Gerald, Allan and Harry.
So, from the start, R&D Thiel was a thriving family business
with a heritage of working with wood. From this relatively
modest beginning evolved one of the largest carpenter contracting
firms in the country.
Thiel, headquartered in Belvidere, Illinois, started in the
suburbs of Chicago and has continued to expand under the name
Carpenter Contractors of America into the thriving markets
of Florida and the Carolinas, or the southeastern United States,
serving all the major metropolitan areas of Florida and the
Thiel and Carpenter Contractors of America have grown to achieve
a reputation as one of the preeminent full service carpenter
contractors, material suppliers and housing component manufacturers
in the United States. As you view our organization, the scope
of services available with a given area may vary, but the
unwavering comitment to quality and client service is consistent
in every community served.
