Jim Pieprzak - president 

Jim learned the basics of underground construction at a very young age, watching and helping his father install septic tanks and field beds. In 1974, they saw a great opportunity to expand the business to include sewer and water mains to meet the demands of the numerous residential developments that were spreading throughout the region. Over the next three decades he became very well know and respected in the development community and continues to be today under his leadership the company continues to grow and expand.




Terry Pieprzak - vice president

Terry was born and raised with the business and has been a strong influential structure since high school. He learned everything that he needed to know from his parents.  Terry has an engineering degree from St Clair Community College. Terry is proud that his children are now a part of the business that defines his family.

Greg Pieprzak - Vice president of field operations

 As the old adage goes, most people want to be born with a silver spoon in their mouth.  Well, Greg was born with a rusty shovel in his hand.  Being around the company atmosphere during his childhood gave him the desire to work and grow a family business like his father and his father's father.  Greg began working in the field as soon as his dad would let him, which he'll tell you was around the age of six, but was probably more like fourteen.  All of this field work was the foundation of the vast experience he has today in sewer, water, site work, and road building.  Expanding on his field knowledge, Greg has also obtained a Civil Engineering Degree from Michigan Tech University, focusing on municipal infrastructure and business operations.  Along with his degree, Greg also has a Michigan Residential Builder's License, a Storm Water Operator's License, and is a Certified Aggregate Technician through the Michigan Department of Transportation.

In 1954, Theodore and Sylvia Pieprzak founded a septic installation and cleaning service, T. R. Pieprzak Company.  As the years passed, the company evolved expanding services to include water and sewer systems.  Eventually with help of their two sons, Jim and Terry, Theodore and Sylvia stepped out of the septic service and focused on their expertise on water and sewer systems.  In 1982, the company incorporated, creating T. R Pieprzak Co., Inc.  This small family owned business has now expanded its expertise to become a large scale underground infrastructure construction and land balancing company serving Southeastern Michigan.
