Bert Otten & Co Pty Ltd came into existence on June 24 1998 after the founding director Egbert Otten decided to breakaway from an existing company, he was co-director with his brother Tim Otten, to further expand his business and to give him more freedom to direct the company in a way that suited him.
Egbert Otten’s father, Chris Otten, immigrated to Australia from Holland in the early 50’s and after two weeks was employed in digging foundations by hand, decided to go out on his own with his brother-in-law, their sons joined the business 10 years later, and some 30 years later their sons goal of the business was that future sons & daughters may have the chance and opportunity to join a secure and growing business in another thirty years. When Egbert retired in the early 2000’s his son Mark took over the running of the business with the assistance of his Bookkeeper/Admin offsider Kylie & later his Foreman Brenden of whom both joined the running of the business in 2008. Mark’s brother Craig has also been working with the company since the beginning. Now Mark’s son Jonathan has joined as a concreter’s labourer learning all aspects of the on-site side. Kylie’s daughter Jade is now administrative assistant/Junior Estimator assisting in the take-off of quantities for projects.
Now named “Otten Constructions” we mainly specialise in dealing with the domestic building market but have been moving into the commercial market as demand has increased in the area.
The goal has been to develop a secure business with a family background to grow steadily, providing an ongoing income and employment for further family members and associates if they so desire.
