1895: A Dairy Farm  →  Today: A Synergy of Companies

From family farm to multi-company business, Holtz has grown more than just corn and soybeans over the past few decades. The Holtz family farm was established in 1895 as a dairy farm with the heart to serve people. The next 82 years of stewarding the land on the Holtz family farm was spearheaded by Grandpa Evan Holtz. It was in 1977 that he retired and passed on the family tradition of excellence in farming practices and cultivating the local community to his son, Marv. Marv and Jean still live on the property and care for the Holtz farm legacy, but it is their son, Tom, who has carried the Holtz family farm into greener (and more extensive) pastures over the past few decades.

In 1993, Marv and Tom incorporated their second branch of Holtz, Holtz Builders, as an additional opportunity to serve the local community with quality craftsmanship and grow the family legacy. Little did they know that incorporating Holtz Builders would grow the Holtz family of companies with an additional three companies: Holtz & Associates Management, International Residence Hall, and Holtz Repair & Fabrication. 

Rooted in Sauk County, WI, and surrounding areas, Holtz Companies have grown beyond their Midwest origin. Now with various locations across Tennessee and Florida and projects that have broken ground in Alabama and Missouri, Holtz Companies is excited about growing to other areas and sharing their expertise with local communities across the US while being committed to never losing sight of the importance of strong company culture. 

As Holtz Companies have developed into several branches, they have only grown stronger. In fact, the diverse skill sets, giftings, and opportunities that the five Holtz companies encompass have made the Holtz brand more fruitful and reputable. Each of the branches of Holtz represents a different part of the values that Holtz bears as a company. The integrity of the Holtz Builders company paired with the exceptional hospitality of the International Residence Hall and Holtz & Associates Management teams has created excellence in property development from breaking ground to groundbreaking hospitality. The sustainability efforts of the Holtz Farm business alongside the industry dominance of the Holtz Repair and Fabrication family have allowed the Holtz Family of Companies to flourish beyond the farm and into the forgery. Holtz is better with each of the branches stemming from the same root company values.

Honesty. Transparency. Integrity. 

Above all, it is the individuals with “Holtz ” inscribed on their business card, hard hat, or uniform that have created this culture and reputation that stands above the rest. Truly, it is these people that we believe in empowering and investing in, that are the engine behind all that we do.

30 Years in Business Feat!

Holtz Companies started as a seedling with Holtz Farms pioneering the way more than 120 years ago. Sprouting from the soil of a small family dairy farm in Rock Springs, WI, this family of companies has transformed into so much more. From corn and soybeans to apartment buildings and engine repairs, Holtz has grown from deep roots to tall trees in a variety of industries. The Companies’ explosive growth over the last five years can be attributed to the outstanding contributions from our dedicated employees, our strong company values, and our word-of-mouth business strategy.

Established in 1993, Holtz Builders has been on a steady upward growth and in 2015, when the HBI moved feom Reedsburg to Lake Delton, we also began our search for a new president. Then in 2018 Dan Bullock joined the team along with an array of exceptionally talented individuals in the years to follow. This year, 2023, will mark 30 years of serving our community! Which has made us pause and think about the remarkable past 8 years, where the HBI business grew 30x over with new offices in Sevierville, TN, Fort Myers, FL, and soon in Branson, MO! That’s like comparing the tallest redwoodtree in the world, the “Hyperion” of 380 feet, to a mature elderberry shrub of 12 ft…

In tandem with HBI’s achievements, International Residence Hall has broadened its reach by adding five more branches, extending IRH’s influence nationwide and growing 10x over since 2014. With an exceptional hospitality team and a perfected formula for crafting a home-away-from-home experience for international students, IRH has welcomed individuals from over thirty different countries. We are branching out into other industries and have our first manufacturing focused project approved in Portage, Wisconsin to start in early 2024. Our goal remains the same: provide an unrivaled experience for residents and expand our reach to more cities in need of safe housing.

Within just the last year, Holtz Repair and Fabrication has become its own external business, capable of servicing machinery and vehicles of all shapes and sizes. Whether it’s everyday cars, tractors, or heavy hydraulic machinery, HRF approaches every mechanical challenge with exceptional expertise. As one of the other mature branches of the Holtz family, Holtz and Associates Management has shaken off its autumn leaves and bloomed with new spring buds. This means that HAM has developed new properties, and residents have chosen to make our facilities their homes. Our canopy of branches has thrived, due to the nurturing care provided by our Holtz family.

As for Holtz Farms, a new leaf has been turned this season. From farmland reach to innovative technology and new agricultural methods, the Holtz Farms team is devoted to enhancing the health and productivity of the land. In the last few years, this branch of Holtz has experienced substantial growth and has a promising future ahead with our team’s immense passion for farming!

Over the past 5 years, we’ve slowly nurtured an ecosystem of companies that has made an impact in our workplace and community. Our hope is that every member of the Holtz family finds joy and fulfillment in their roles within the Holtz ecosystem – not only during the holidays, but every work day. We are so excited for the future of Holtz Companies and the collective achievements we will accomplish, one Holtz employee at a time.
