When customers come to Renovations by Henning they know they are not only engaging with the current generation – Heather Henning Milner – but a tradition passed on by her father and her grandfather and her great-grandfather.
Founded by Danish immigrant Lars H. Henning in Latimer, Iowa the Henning Family history in the renovation and construction industry is based on core principles: honesty, hard work and integrity. It is from those principles combined with solid Midwestern values that drive each and every Renovation by Henning project to this day.
The story of Henning Family of companies is also the story of America in so many great ways.
Lars was a brick mason by trade, having learned his craft in the traditional ways of European craft guilds. Upon arrival in America he sought out the American dream by starting a small construction business in his adopted hometown of Latimer, Henning Construction quickly gained a reputation as a builder of quality clay tile barns, gymnasiums, grain silos and other buildings within this north central Iowa community.
Lars’ sons, Owen and Wayne, expanded the portfolio of the company to include carpentry and home building. Owen started a division of business specializing in grain handling, drying, storage and milling. By the early 1950s, Henning Construction established itself as a respected regional builder of single family residential housing, light commercial buildings, agricultural confinement buildings and feed mills.
Lars’ grandson, Jeff Henning, became a senior member of the Company’s management staff and expanded Henning Construction’s expertise into the areas of multifamily residential, multistory office buildings, state-of-art livestock confinement facilities, food processing facilities and international construction management.
The fourth generation is represented with both of Jeff’s daughters, Heather Henning Milner and Lisa Henning Beohm working in the family business. Under Jeff Henning’s leadership and with the support of a stable and experienced management and building team, The Henning companies – Henning Construction Company in Iowa and Renovations by Henning in Naples, Florida – is well positioned to meet the construction needs of various industries throughout the world.
Renovations by Henning is widely regarded as among the finest commercial and home renovation and remodeling firms in Florida, if not the entire Southeastern U.S.
The rock solid Midwestern heritage of honestly, hard work and integrity remains embeded in the DNA of the company.
