1. CORE Construction

Background: CORE Construction's founder, Otto Baum, immigrated to Morton, Illinois, in 1925 with the hopes of building a new life for his family. He quickly established a reputation for being an honest, hard-working man. When Otto applied for a loan for his masonry company in 1937, he had nothing to use as collateral except his proven character. When the bank manager asked why they should consider Otto’s request, the loan officer simply replied, “I trust him.” This event sparked the beginning of CORE, which now operates across Arizona with the same values that Otto started the company with in 1937.
