History[edit]

Adolph Teichert immigrated to New York from Germany in 1866, and he was recruited by the California Artificial Stone Paving Company in the 1870s. His craftsmanship was renowned, and some of his earliest work can still be seen in Golden Gate Park and near the Mark Hopkins Hotel in San Francisco.

Teichert came to Sacramento to work on laying the sidewalks around the original California State Capitol building, and then started his own business in 1887, building walkways, basement floors, sidewalks, fencing, and other projects. The original Teichert stamp can still be seen imprinted in many sidewalks throughout many neighborhoods in the region.

Adolph was joined in the company by one of his four children, Adolph Jr., and the two of them grew the business. Over the years, Teichert has grown into a diverse mix of businesses, most notably Teichert Construction and Teichert Materials. Teichert Construction holds California State Contractor’s License #8, the oldest active contractor’s license in California.[1]

Additionally, the Teicherts helped establish the Northern California Contractors Association - which later became the Northern California chapter of the Associated General Contractors of America.
