About Otte Construction
Otte Construction is a full service construction company in Northeast Nebraska that offers pre-construction, general construction, construction management and conceptual design services in the commercial and residential markets.
Otte Construction views all projects with the same level of importance and applies the following strategies to projects large and small: hands-on professional supervision, reliable estimating and budgeting, accurate time tables, and attention to detail.
In 1928, Karl Otte, Sr. began constructing homes in Northeast Nebraska and progressed into a commercial builder specializing in churches. In the late 1950's, three of Karl's sons, Karl, Kurt, and Paul followed in the same steps as their father as they assumed control of the company and continued to maintain Otte Construction's reputation for quality craftsmanship.
A third generation joined the company in 1994 in order to continue the family business as Karl, Kurt, and Paul neared retirement. Jeff Morlok purchased the company from his uncles and was joined by his cousin, Keith Moje, to help lead the company.
Keith became the owner of Otte Construction in April, 2012. He is committed to preserving the excellent reputation that is synonymous with the Otte Construction name and is dedicated to the principals upon which Karl, Sr. built the company: integrity, quality craftsmanship, and hard work.
Keith is the current owner of Otte Construction and the third generation to provide excellence in the construction industry. He joined Otte Construction in June, 1994 with the desire to continue the family business after his uncles, Karl, Kurt and Paul decided to retire. Keith joined cousin, Jeff Morlok, as an unofficial partner and vice-president of Otte Construction. Keith purchased the business from Jeff in April, 2012.
