Municipalities Remain: The Infrastructure and Backbone of the Queen City.
Smart Growth with Exceptional Schools: “Winners Want To Be With Winners.’
[CINCINNATI, Ohio ~ Feb. 23, 2017] One of Cincinnati’s best-known developers has once again hit the $100 million mark by sticking to old-school principles, while offering a diverse palette of new buildings, new product and design at Cincinnati United Contractors (CUC) Inc., soon to be celebrating a 40-year anniversary. Revenue growth has remained consistent between 10-20 percent annually since the crash of 2008.
“We’ve been fortunate to be above $100 million for the last several years by applying our skills and talents to any project type,” says Chance Truemper, vice president of Cincinnati United Contractors – CUC (www.cintiunited.com).
“There’s a saying around here: We’ll build anything from your doghouse to the penthouse,” Truemper says.
“Whatever it takes – and, sometimes, it takes building that doghouse, for someone to get to know you, in order to get the opportunity to build their penthouse.”
Like every other year since 1978, CUC has earned its stripes through relationships earned, and promises kept, with the many and various corporate clients, business owners and municipalities located throughout Greater Cincinnati.
“Municipalities are key to being successful in construction and development. Taking the city, county, and/or township on as a partner is critical,” Truemper says.
“Municipalities are in charge of buying police cars, fire trucks, snow plows, and many other aspects of city needs. Usually they’re one of the biggest employers. If you have a good city manager and a pro-business council, you will be able to attract great businesses. Business interests can, in turn, pour all kinds of tax money back into the community.”
A manufacturing rebound has boosted CUC, as well as light industrial, and office work such as the new $20 million Blue Ash headquarters for Integrity Express Logistics on Cooper Road. CUC recently added another office building at the popular Summit Woods Office Park in Sharonville; construction recently wrapped up on the East Side in Milford (UC Health and Roney’s) and in Mount Orab (new AutoMall for Mark Williams Auto Group).
“We’re still doing a wide variety of projects. So much of our business is referral-based, so we actually do enjoy the variety,” Truemper says.
SUCCESS IN CINCINNATI: CITIES THAT WORK, SCHOOLS THAT PRODUCE
Cincinnati United Contractors – CUC is a Cincinnati native and development/construction company owner who learned the business literally from the group up: he spent his early years in the business behind the steering wheel of a bulldozer for Gallenstein Co. Truemper has been a vice president at Cincinnati United Contractors – CUC for seven years; he’s a University of Cincinnati graduate from the renowned UC College of Applied Science.
Cincinnati is comprised of a quirky network of cities, counties, villages, townships, and states – a terrain few know better than Kubicki, Truemper and their home-grown team at CUC. “The success of local school districts, in particular, remains a prime catalyst for the success of any real estate project,” Kubicki says.
“When school districts require a levy, home owners need to understand the positive impact it will have on their property values,” Kubicki adds.
“Whether it’s for your own living expenses, or for passing wealth on to the next generation, having a house in a good school district is critical. It’s a tremendous advantage, to development, if the Superintendent is running her or his school district like a municipality. Just like a City Manager, a School Superintendent is running a large company.”
“Winners want to be with winners,” concluded Kubicki.
“There are many who will vote down levies simply because they don’t have children in the school district anymore. However, that home is probably one of their biggest investments, and they need it to be worth as much as possible when it’s time to sell.”
