Casper Construction, Inc. was established by Everett Casper in 1940. After 36 years of hardwork and dedication, Everett sold the company to his son, Curt Casper, and son-in-law, Gene Schultz in 1976. Following in Everett's footsteps, Curt and Gene passed the company on to Gene's son, Lance Schultz, and Curt's son, Bill Casper in 2001. Lance currently serves as the President and CEO, while Bill serves as Vice President and a Pipeline Project Manager.

"Foreman Harold Carpenter had to go swimming to locate the cable when it slipped off a 2 1/2" pin which bent on a 'Cat'. The cable snapped into the water, and crews probed for it with a pole. Carpenter then took his dip. It took 2 1/2 weeks to prepare for making the crossing. Trenching stared at 5:30 a.m. Friday, and the crossing was completed at 4 p.m. Cost of the project was about $90,000. The main project also required construction of a tunnel under Pokegama Avenue."
"Fifty tons of pipe were bolted into a 270-foot section and dragged across the Mississippi River in Grand Rapids on July 21. The pipe especially made for river crossings, weighs 450 pounds to the foot. It is part of the force main running from the pumping station on the north side of the river to the industrial waste plant on the south side. Casper Construction of Grand Rapids is doing the work."
"Fourteen barrels were fastened to the first piece of pipe to provide flotation as the crossing started. This section runs down the bank at Second Avenue SE just east of the hospital. Casper crews made a ten-foot trench in the river bed to provide room for the pipe and five feet of covering. The shovels worked in the water up to the cabs, with a Caterpillar tractor pulling them back toward shore by a cable."
