The beginnings of Schilke Construction Co., Inc. date back to sometime in 1948, after Oscar Schilke was discharged from the Army. Oscar built a reputation as being old school, a hard working excavator, a "one man show”. He became well known in the Millstone and Hillsborough area grading, digging cellars, and constructing septic systems as the community grew. He raised his two sons and a daughter with his wife Madeline in Millstone.
In 1973, Douglas, the youngest son, went into partnership with his father and began building on the foundation his father had laid. Doug began doing larger site work, municipal projects, concrete and bridge work as well as utility work. Eventually, Doug became the principal owner.
Today, Doug Schilke still maintains the precepts that Oscar set forth 37 years ago. Schilke Construction has evolved into a modern utility oriented company that pays homage to old school principals by conducting business in a way that honors its founder, Oscar Schilke.
