The Teer Family has been
associated with Construction and Development since the turn of the
Century. In 1906, Nello L. Teer, Rob Teer's grandfather then an 18 year
old brickyard workman suffered the loss of his hand in an unfortunate
on-site accident. But young Nello Teer was a man of vision and strong work
ethic who turned an obstacle into an opportunity. He started over.
Working with rented mules and equipment, he began clearing and grading
Nello L. Teer worked hard during the economic
boom of the early twentieth century, and over the years built a thriving
operation, which expanded across the country and world.
Robert D. Teer, Jr. is the grandson of Nello
L. Teer, raised in the family tradition of perseverance, insight and
excellence. Like his grandfather, he has worked diligently to acquire an
intricate understanding of the construction and development industries
while pursuing a formal education in a variety of areas.
