By Lindsay Gale12 November 2013
Rachel Contracting has appointed Kevin Klimmek, previously one of the company’s senior project managers, to the position of vice president/North Dakota group manager.

Kevin brings 20 years of construction related experience in the heavy civil industry around the central and western USA.
Kevin said of his promotion: “We have had a solid presence in North Dakota for some time now, but the growth in that area - driven by Bakken Oil Shale production and the infrastructure needed to support it - is so impressive that we felt a dedicated management-level person was needed,” he says. “One of the hallmark’s of Rachel’s business has always been its ability to provide outstanding service and the best possible product to our clients - this will allow us to do so even better.”
Rachel’s projects in the oil and gas-rich northwest North Dakota include earthwork, utilities, environmental, demolition, industrial services, ground stabilization, aggregate and specialty contracting for the oil and gas industry. Recently Rachel completed mass grading on the Garden Creek Gas Plant and four other Compressor Stations for ONEOK.

Currently, Rachel is conducting mass grading and tank foundation construction for one of the state’s largest tank farms located in Johnson’s Corner, ND as well as grading and utility installation for the Van Hook Oil Terminal located in New Town, ND.
