Building a better tomorrow
Our purpose is to build a safer, more enriching and sustainable world by harnessing the power of family.
Who We Are
Founded in 1930, The Heritage Group is a fourth-generation family-owned business managing a diverse portfolio of more than 30 companies specializing in heavy construction and materials, environmental services and specialty chemicals.
The Heritage Group has deep expertise and significant holdings in the fields of transportation infrastructure and materials, environmental services, and specialty chemicals and fuel products.
Transportation Infrastructure & Materials
For more than 50 years, the Heritage Construction + Materials family of companies has built roads, bridges and other commercial projects across the Midwest and as far away as China. Our asphalt and aggregate supply companies produce and distribute high-quality road construction materials and specialty minerals throughout the country.
The Heritage Group has been developing environmentally sustainable solutions for more than 50 years. We started Heritage Environmental Services (HES) with a Subtitle C landfill in 1970, the same year the EPA was created. Today, HES is a leader in environmental sustainability and a one-stop waste management solution with locations across North America.
Specialty Chemicals & Fuel Products
Monument Chemical is a leader in custom chemical manufacturing and sells a leading line of solvents, chemical intermediates, and polyols to our customers in North America and Europe. Key markets include inks and paints, fuel gas scrubbing, microchip fabrication, and memory foam mattresses.
Family-Owned Since 1930
From our humble beginnings—one man, one truck, and a dream—we are continually evolving to realize our founder John E. Fehsenfeld’s vision of a long-term family business, guided by his core family values.
