Foertsch Contracting

Foertsch Contracting was started in the 1950s by Mason Foertsch, who began digging lakes with a used bulldozer. Incorporated in 1967, hard work and an unwavering commitment to quality created a family business spanning over 50 years. Foertsch Construction has extensive experience in heavy marine and civil contracting including marine transloading, dredging, topside barge repair, contract marine towing, and marine facility inspection. Foertsch Construction specializes in marine construction with notable past experience installing new cells, dolphins, and repair of existing infrastructure. Foertsch Construction is the stevedore for Tell City River Port and Hoosier Southern Railroad. This mobile stevedoring crew is capable of transloading products anywhere on the inland river system.
