The Accelerate Magazine features VJS Construction Services' 75 years in the construction industry in its April 2023 edition.
VJS Construction Services (VJS), a Pewaukee-based and family-owned construction manager, general contractor, and design builder is celebrating 75 years of building with purpose.
VJS, formerly Voss Jorgensen Schueler Company, was founded in 1947, by two former Allis-Chalmers engineers, Harold Voss and John Hrdlicka.
