Tim Smith

Tim has been involved in the construction industry for most of his life. In his early years, he spent his summers working for his grandfather’s construction business, A.H. Bechtold Construction, where he gained many years of experience in the industry. Following high school, Tim worked full-time for his grandfather up until 1979 when his grandfather decided to sell his business and head into retirement. At that point, Tim decided to purchase the company and began operating the business himself.

Since that time Tim has turned the company into one of the premier general contractors in the Whitley County area serving hundreds of clients over the years. He has always enjoyed the fact that construction allows him to be outdoors and it brings on a variety of new challenges with each project. He also enjoys developing and maintaining relationships with clients, many of which have lasted for several decades. Even after forty plus years of business, he is still inspired to meet evolving customer needs and deliver an overall excellent product.
