Where quality doesn’t cost, it pays.
Anything worth building starts with a good foundation, whether it’s a construction project or a construction company. We opened our doors in 1979, and since then we’ve established a job-tested reputation in Wyoming and Northern Colorado that’s built on work well done and delivering results that exceed our client’s expectations.
From commercial construction, to one-of-a-kind residential projects, to historical building renovations, we’re a one-stop shop with the expertise to tackle any project – and the portfolio to prove it.
Redco is a fourth-generation, family-owned company born on the Front Range, so we take every job personally and never take our clients for granted. When you partner with us, you’ll discover that work done well is what we do best.
Who We Are
As President of Redco, M.J. Gertsch has been building and developing residential and commercial projects in Cheyenne and along the Front Range since 1979. Chances are you’ve seen one of the hundreds of projects we’ve completed with M.J. at the helm.
M.J. grew up in Colorado Springs, and construction runs in his family. His father was a general contractor, providing M.J. the chance to develop his skills before moving to Cheyenne. Under his leadership, Redco has completed a wide array of projects including developing industrial and manufacturing sites, constructing residential areas, shopping centers, restaurants, and banks, as well as completing custom-designed projects. He holds a Class A license for Cheyenne, a Class B license for Fort Collins and a general license for Casper.
M.J. is active in the Cheyenne community and currently serves on the Cheyenne Contractor’s Licensing Board.
A Wyoming native, Ryan Gertsch grew up with Redco and has been working with us since 1994. Like the rest of his family, he was raised in the construction industry and his resume is filled with exceptional work spanning hundreds of commercial and residential projects.
Ryan started cleaning up job sites as a teenager and worked in several of the subcontractor trades to earn his stripes. Using that knowledge as a foundation, he transitioned to a superintendent, handling day-to-day operations on Redco job sites.
As a Class A general contractor in Cheyenne (and licensed in surrounding cities and counties) Ryan has expertise in design, building, project management, and business development. He holds a Class A license for Cheyenne and Larimer County and a general license for Casper.
Ryan was a volunteer firefighter and currently serves on the Salvation Army advisory board.
Lisa grew up in Broomfield, Colorado and graduated from CSU in Fort Collins with a bachelor’s degree in Health and Exercise Science. Lisa previously worked for a larger commercial contractor as an office manager for multi-million dollar projects such as collegiate stadiums, hospitals, educational facilities, manufacturing, and commercial campuses before transferring to a full-time position at Redco during its growth period.
As we grew, so did Lisa’s role. She assumed a full-time position overseeing our accounts payable/receivable, payroll, and human resources departments.
Born in northern Colorado, Jarrod has been a (nearly) life-long Wyomingite, having moved to the Cowboy State at the age of 3.
In 2007, Jarrod became the first driver hired for Redco. His previous experience in equipment and material hauling ideally positioned him to move to a management role in our trucking department only two years later.
Jarrod helped transition a small operation focused on moving our own equipment for local construction jobs into a nationwide hauling operation that’s traversed every state in the lower 48, transporting everything from military tanks to construction equipment, and hay bales to substations.

Hailing from Arizona, Johnny brings decades of construction experience to the Redco team and exemplifies the expertise and work ethic in which we take pride.

He’s also instrumental in managing crucial scheduling tasks on some of our most complex projects
When he's not overseeing a wide array of construction projects, Johnny enjoys spending time with his wife camping, fishing, hunting, and golfing.
