In 1954, Theodore and Sylvia Pieprzak founded TR Pieprzak Company, which laid the foundation for T.R. Pieprzak Co., Inc. TR Pieprzak Company began as a septic installation and cleaning company. In later years, as development started, the business included water and sewer services for homes.
In 1982, the TR Pieprzak Company became incorporated as T.R. Pieprzak Co., Inc. Ted and Sylvia's sons, Jim and Terry, were involved at this time and shifted the business. They made the move out of the septic field and into the water, sanitary and storm sewer installation.
The past foundation and today's technology has provided T.R. Pieprzak Co., Inc. a vast knowledge to become a large calibrator underground infrastructure construction and land balancing company serving Southeastern Michigan.
Jim learned the basics of underground construction at a very young age, watching and helping his father install septic tanks and field beds. In 1974, they saw a great opportunity to expand the business to include sewer and water mains to meet the demands of the numerous residential developments that were spreading throughout the region. Over the next three decades he became very well know and respected in the development community and continues to be today under his leadership the company continues to grow and expand

As the old adage goes, most people want to be born with a silver spoon in their mouth. Well, Greg was born with a rusty shovel in his hand. Being around the company atmosphere during his childhood gave him the desire to work and grow a family business like his father and his father's father. Greg began working in the field as soon as his dad would let him, which he'll tell you was around the age of six, but was probably more like fourteen. All of this field work was the foundation of the vast experience he has today in sewer, water, site work, and road building. Expanding on his field knowledge, Greg has also obtained a Civil Engineering Degree from Michigan Tech University, focusing on municipal infrastructure and business operations. Along with his degree, Greg also has a Michigan Residential Builder's License, a Storm Water Operator's License and is a Certified Aggregate Technician through the Michigan Department of Transportation.
