Skold Construction Services, Inc. was founded in 1992 by Steve Skold after purchasing the gypsum underlayment and tectum roof deck business from Gregor Gentleman. With a gypsum underlayment pump, a couple trucks and a few employees, Steve set out to grow Skold Companies into what it is today; four specialize companies spanning throughout the Midwest. The growth started in 1994 with Skold Door Company; focusing on the installation of specialty doors and operable partitions, followed by the formation of Skold Commercial Contracting in 1996; providing structural grouting, and finally, expanding outside of Iowa in 2002 with our first Skold Specialty Contracting office in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. After a decade of success with Skold Specialty Contracting in Sioux Falls, Steve expanded Skold Specialty Contracting into Minnesota in 2013, followed by the acquisition of Rapid Acoustical Floors in Rapid City, South Dakota in 2018.
Since our inception in 1992, with the leadership and foresight from Steve Skold, we’ve been able to grow our product offerings and services throughout the Midwest, with offices in Iowa, Minnesota, and South Dakota. Each company provides its own unique array of professional services to owners, Architects and General Contractors.
In 2022 Shamus Stephens and Jason Pitts took over full ownership of the four entities – Skold Construction Services, Skold Door Company, Skold Commercial Contracting and Skold Specialty Contracting – establishing the parent company, Skold Companies.
