Ron and Linda Olsen formed Linde Construction Co. Linde was a union general contractor serving eastern Nebraska and western Iowa.


Linde completes the first project – an expansion to the circulation towers for the University of Nebraska Omaha.



Ronco Construction Co. was formed in 1982 as a non-union sister company to Linde Construction Co., serving the Midwest region. Ronco purchases Schafer’s chicken farm near 72nd and Blondo Streets and transforms the original farm building, constructed in 1920, into its headquarters, where the company is still located today.


Ronco was awarded the Dillon Inn hotel project (now operating as AmericInn by Wyndham Omaha) at 98th and Dodge Streets. At the time, this was the largest project ever awarded to Nebraska non-union general contractor.


Linde reaches the 100-employee mark. There are several projects underway at Offutt Air Force Base, including the administration building, barracks building, and fifth increment base housing.

Ronco purchased a Potain MDT 289 crane which is the first of its kind in North America. It was erected on its first project, Hilton’s Hampton Inn at UNMC, in July 2022.


After cutting his teeth building civic and infrastructure projects throughout Omaha in the 50s and 60s, Ronco Construction’s founder Ron Olsen recognized a hole in the commercial sector. So, he took a chance and jumped in with both feet.

It started with Linde Construction, a union shop specializing in the government and education sectors, completing many high-profile projects in the Omaha metro such as Central High School, University of Nebraska circulation towers and the Offutt Air Force Base barracks. As Linde and the city of Omaha grew, Ron and his wife Linda started Ronco Construction Co. as a non-union sister company in 1982, adding a formidable competitor to the non-union market. In 1999, the two companies merged and work today as Ronco Construction.

Following in the footsteps of our founder, Ronco has been constructing and delivering projects of remarkable scope and complexity, and has become one of the most established Midwest contractors — completing projects from Oklahoma City to Sioux Falls.
