A New Generation
July 25, 1969, General contractor, Benson-Orth Associates was founded by partners Ken Benson and Bob Orth to offer general contracting services in the local Twin Cities community. Operations began humbly, out of the base of Ken’s home in Golden Valley, Minnesota. With Ken in charge of sales and development of commercial and industrial buildings and Bob running the field operations, the firm flourished and grew steadily for more than 20 years.
