Gregg Machemehl and Rollie Radtke

Rollie Radtke And Gregg Machemehl decided to stop competing with each other and combined forces to create RAM. The partnership formed is a good one; with each of them having different expertise in the building industry it has brought a well rounded perspective to the business. Both men had experience in the construction industry for many years. Their first venture together was Gregg’s addition to the partnership with Waconia Building Supply. At the start of this endeavor the two men had 36 years combined experience in the construction industry. Their experience combined with the relationships they established in the industry and the community played a key role in RAM’s development and growth.

RAM Buildings, Inc. is the original corporation within the RAM family. It began in 1998 and since then has been a thriving part of the construction industry in the Midwest. RAM Buildings, Inc. provides a full range of construction capabilities in both wood frame and steel frame building solutions for your equestrian, commercial, storage, agricultural, residential, hangar, and cabin construction projects. RAM Buildings, Inc. is a member of the National Frame Builders Association and has won 8 Building of the Year awards.

RAM was doing so well and wanted to be able to service their customers in an even broader spectrum. They decided to add RAM General Contracting, Inc. to the family in 2005. RAM General Contracting, Inc. offers a complete ONE-STOP source for your entire post frame, wood frame, CMU (block), precast, and steel frame building projects from start to finish. RAM General Contracting, Inc. specializes in large equestrian facilities, commercial and industrial buildings.

Stress-Free-ZoneTake the RAM Advantage!

Radtke and Machemehl recognized a problem facing their customers – they had to go to many different sources to get their project completed, and they had to try and manage all of this on their own. Wanting to satisfy the needs of their clients, the RAM Advantage was created. The idea conceived is that there can be one place from which to receive all of your services from beginning to end. What a stress free approach to building! You set the budget, we discuss the options, and away we go. It is within our plans to strive to improve upon the RAM Advantage from this day forward. RAM has always been and will forever be client focused.

In 2009 RAM began offering excavation services as a division of RAM General Contracting, Inc. The division grew very quickly and in 2012 it was decided to make RAM Excavating Services its own corporation. Yet another advantage for the customer who chooses RAM! RAM Excavating Services, Inc. is the newest addition to the RAM family of companies.


From the beginning it has been goal to find innovative solutions to everyday occurrences. We stand firmly in our commitment to the future of our customers, the business, and the industry.
