RBJ Schlegel is a three generation family business started by Wilfred Schlegel in the 1940’s, and built upon by his son Ronald.
Today, Wilfred’s grandsons Rob, Brad and James provide leadership to the organization. Much of Wilfred’s life was dedicated to community building, and this continues to be the central mission of the organization. The values by which Wilfred lived his life – humility, servant leadership, hard work, positive attitude, innovation and relationship building – form the foundation of the family culture of the modern organization.
