Our History

Don Zimmerman, Dave’s father, began building homes in the Fremont and Lindsey communities in 1960. Throughout the years, Don branched out into other fields of work, including renovations and light commercial construction. In 1990, Don retired and his son Dave continued his father’s dedication to exceptional quality and service that began 30 years prior. Dave’s vision for the company included excavation, so in 1990, the company bought its first industrial backhoe. Through the years, we have purchased additional equipment to continue meeting the demands of our customers.


Dave’s son, Tony Zimmerman, graduated from The Ohio State University with a degree in construction management in 2010. Following graduation, Tony worked for Pinnacle Construction in Columbus, Ohio managing multiple large projects in 2015. Tony returned to Fremont and has been managing the business with Dave. On January 1, 2018 Dave Zimmerman Contractor, LLC transitioned to Zimmerman Building Company, under Tony’s leadership.


Moving forward, we will continue to find innovative and more helpful ways to meet your construction needs. We continue to provide exceptional service and hold ourselves to the same rigorous standards that Don set in 1960.
