Ken and Beverly Kistler, working out of an in-home office, established Kistler Buildings in 1981. Ken had previously been employed in the industry for over ten years as a construction superintendent. Soon afterwards, Roland Kern and Thomas Golden, both experienced professionals, joined Ken at Kistler Buildings. Two years later, after significant equipment and material purchases, the property along Route 78 in Fogelsville PA became company headquarters and remains so to this day.
In the summer of 2007, Ken sold Kistler Buildings, Inc. to Roland Kern and Thomas Golden upon his retirement. Roland and Tom will continue in the path of constructing premium buildings.
