More About JR & Co., Inc.
It all started in the small town of Le Mars Iowa when John (JR) and Kristi Schuller established JR Roofing as a sole proprietorship. For over a decade the business steadily grew, in size and reputation, for quality roofing services.
Move To The Big City2000
With fully developed capabilities, JR moved the company to Kansas City which represented a much larger metro market and centralized regional access to Missouri, Iowa, Nebraska, and Kansas. The company was incorporated under their new name, JR&Co., Inc.
JR&Co.’s Kansas City based operation continued to grow to become a strong regional player, especially in providing world class single ply membrane roofing expertise.
While visiting family in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada, JR saw the opportunity to take what he had perfected to a completely new market. So, he moved north and started a new company, which today is still owned and operated by him.
In JR’s absence, his protégé, Jonathan Schilling, was promoted from the field to take over the reins of the day to day operations.
Jonathan began the process of acquiring JR&Co., Inc. from the Schullers. He immediately began to build on solid principles and instill the values he learned while growing up and during his military service in the army, transforming JR& Co. from a “what” company, to a “why” company. Jon also had a vision to invest in sheet metal capabilities, as a complement to roofing.
Expansion Into Florida2017
Hurricane Irma hit southwest Florida with a vengeance and JR&CO was poised to help out. After signing a sizeable deal in SW Florida there was an opportunity to position the company, long term in the region. With some key personnel moving from Kansas City, and the addition of some excellent Floridians, we opened a branch in Ft. Myers. Since then we have outgrown our second facility and will be moving to a larger office and warehouse in Bonita Springs soon.
Headed To The Front Range2018
With the award of a multi-year contract to roof Ft. Carson Army base, just south of Colorado Springs, we had the catalyst to open another branch office and warehouse and build our long-term market share in a beautiful part of the country. About the same time, we added a Tenant Finish Division, to complement our ability to serve multi-location building owners and managers.
With an employee base now over 200 strong, we moved our corporate headquarters to a great mid-town Kansas City location and used our own tenant finish capabilities to build out beautiful and functional offices, designed to accommodate training and client interaction. Late in the year we added a Solar installation division, that once again, integrates with our primary business of roofing.
Our growth over the past 3 years earned JR&CO. both regional and national recognition as we were chosen one of Kansas City’s fastest growing companies according to Ingram’s Magazine, and the KC Business Journal, as well as being ranked the number 66th largest roofing contractor by Roofing Contractor Magazine.
What The Future Holds2019
With another year of growth, JR&CO was the nation’s 33rd largest Commercial Roofing Company. We garnered a Kansas City “Fast 50” award. An investment in equipment and talent brought sheet metal fabrication in-house. Our roofing options expanded with Roof Restoration(liquid applied roof coating system).
With a strong backlog coming into 2020, and a fully functioning sheet metal shop, JR&Co. is poised for another solid year, despite the unique challenges of 2020. We have expanded into Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Tennessee. In August, we mobilized to help clients in the path of major storms in Iowa and Louisiana.
