Adam Hergenrother Companies

Adam Hergenrother remembers the exact moment he decided he’d never settle for a life of mediocrity. He was 15—overweight, failing classes, giving into peer pressure to experiment with alcohol and soft drugs. And then one day he just came home and broke down. Enough was enough, he decided. “I just knew I wasn’t going to […]

SAS Construction Inc.

Baldwin, Louisiana, a tiny town in the southern part of the state, is small in both size and population. It measures just 3.2 square miles and is home to just over 2,000 residents. But key industries, including carbon black processing—a little known but important chemical powder—and sugar mills, anchor businesses like SAS Construction Inc., a […]


Under the best of conditions, a painstakingly long and expensive process—on average, 10 years and $2.6 billion—awaits any prescription drug seeking to achieve regulatory approval. There are the research and discovery phases, the preclinical testing, the initial application to the Food and Drug Administration, several rounds of clinical testing, final new drug application and follow-up […]

Natale Builders

The draw of western New York becomes more apparent as the greater Buffalo area undergoes a renaissance, creating a demand for high-quality, customized housing that’s being partially met by Natale Builders. Call them “forever homes,” says Director of Sales Peter Kress as he hustles between late-spring appointments from the Clarence office to the various sites […]

Spaulding Green

When Dominic Piestrak began gathering builders for a high-end luxury community development in Clarence, New York, a small suburb outside Buffalo, his efforts raised a few eyebrows. It was the late ‘80s, “and everyone told me you’ll never sell them,” the real estate developer recalls. “At that time, Buffalo was a blue-collar town, centered around […]

Merrick & Company

Employee stock ownership plans (ESOPs) have gained popularity in the last 20 years, in part because favorable tax regulations have made them an excellent way for retiring leaders to set up succession plans that reward their team, and because by passing profits and losses to ESOP trusts, which serve as shareholders, certain corporations can avoid […]

Victory Fire Protection LLC

While sprinkler systems are not mandatory in Texas apartment complexes, many are the public safety officials who would recommend otherwise. As Montgomery County Fire Marshall Jimmy Williams told the Houston Chronicle back in 2012, the simple reality of apartment living includes the inevitable fire that can spread quickly among densely-packed units, putting lives and belongings […]

O&G Industries Inc. – Stamford, Connecticut, Police Station

When O&G Industries Inc., one of the Northeast’s largest construction companies, broke ground on Stamford, Connecticut’s, new police station in February 2017, it was the beginning of a welcome upgrade for the city’s public safety, and the public at large. The current 40,000-square-foot headquarters were built in 1971, and they weren’t big enough to house […]

Dunhill Homes

Looking at the marketing material, or the 326 homes closed last year, you wouldn’t guess that Dunhill Homes is just six years old. One might draw a similar conclusion from its aspirations. The Dallas, Texas-based home builder expects to close 450 homes in 2017, and it has made the list of fastest-growing companies in the […]

Energy Engineering & Design Inc.

For 10 years, David Ward installed and maintained HVAC systems in commercial buildings throughout Portland, Oregon, but he was often frustrated by how frequently design engineers overlooked his recommendations for design improvements. “Working in the field, I knew when there was a better way to do something or else tell them that [the design] just […]


My experience with US Builders Review was positive from start to finish. The staff conducted each interaction with the utmost professionalism, whether over the phone or by email. Beginning with the initial telephone interview US Builders Review carefully gathered information to form a draft document then incorporated my minimal edits required to achieve factual accuracy in the finished article. US Builders Review is a pleasure to work with.

I was contacted as a nominee for the Greenbuild Editor’s Choice 2016 recognition and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Working with US Builders Review has been a blessing for my company. Erica Berry took an awesome interview in the initial call as she gathered data for the article. She was concerned about how we became us, and she made me feel important by listening and taking notes. Then there is Ian Nichols who made me feel so comfortable in sharing my story, and Molly Shaw who interviewed me as well, as she was getting ready to create an awesome article about my company -- and I must say she nailed it on the first run! What a pleasure it has been to work with everyone. This feature on Container Homes USA will help me push the company into the forefront at the Greenbuild Expo 2016.

Working with Kyle at TrueLine Publishing was a great experience. We are quite pleased with how the article about Souder Brothers turned out. The magazine article and photo spread is going to be a very effective tool to use in our marketing. If you have the opportunity to be featured in a project like this, I would recommend doing it. Kyle and his team made the whole process very smooth and we are happy to have been a part of the latest edition of US Builders Review.
