Jon Hartman grew up in Kalispell, MT, and Lancaster, PA.  The product of hardworking entrepreneurial parents, it was practically in his blood to one day start out on his own.  Jon officially began in construction after college, though he grew up farming and building and naturally applied all the integrity and work ethic of that history to his trade.  In business and in life Jon’s defining characteristic is that he is purposeful in all endeavors, making him a dedicated contractor and a devoted friend.  Longtime friend and business partner Dave Salfrank put it simply, “Jon is the best person I know.”  With this sentiment customers and colleagues universally agree.

Jon and his wife Tandy have two children, David (8) and Linley (6).

Dave Salfrank grew up in parts of Minnesota as well as Lancaster, PA, and spent his early married life in Seattle, WA.  Although Dave prefers to work behind the scenes and stay out of the limelight, he can’t help attracting loyal friends and associates.  Concreters are a strange breed, rather thriving on the difficult conditions their medium demands, which often go unseen.  It is an all-or-nothing trade, and that suits Dave fine.  It was with this sort of attitude that he and his young family moved across the continent nearly a decade ago to go into business with Jon.

Their mutual respect and trust serves the partners well.  Jon says, “I appreciate, respect and try to emulate many of Dave’s qualities.  He’s got a great heart, works hard, and is faithful.  He is gifted in areas where I lack.  A partnership, like a marriage, requires a lot of trust and grace.  But also, when operating fully has so much potential.”

Dave and his wife Sara have three girls, Lydia (11), Vivienne (9), and Blythe (5).
