      KOKOSING’S FOUNDER

      William “Bill” Burgett was a farm boy with humble beginnings – a visionary and a man of courage and integrity. Bill was bestowed with God-given talent, aspirations, and innate knowledge of how to build things with his hands.  It was in 1951 in the small town of Fredericktown, where two men, Bill Burgett and Lester Rinehart, started turning work into jobs so they could feed their families. In the early days, odd jobs included building and remodeling houses, barns, churches, schools, a milk house, and several small commercial projects.

      Guided by Christian values, Bill was supported by friends, mentors, family, and the people who worked for the company. The second and third generations of Bill’s family have inherited his tenacity for perfection, integrity, and the same Christian values that are the foundation of the company. They have prepared themselves through education and learned well from their father and grandfather who has been their mentor and role model.
