The Schmidt Family

The Schmidts

Based in the Twin Cities, AMEK Custom Builders, AMEK Exteriors, and Home911 are family-owned and operated businesses founded in 1996 by brothers Matt and Andrew Schmidt, later joined by brother Paul and father Mark. Another brother, Aaron, operates his own company, AMEK Electric.

The AMEK company has grown by building client relationships and referrals. As we work closely with each client, the Schmidt family honors their core values that apply both to their work and personal lives – integrity, honesty, and trust. This desire for true relationships and superior craftsmanship is what drives the attention to detail in all aspects of a project – whether it’s an exterior renovation, remodel, construction defect remediation, emergency repair, or the design and build of a new home.

As our business steadily grows, so does the depth of the family involvement. It is now common for several of the older grandchildren to come help their grandfather Mark do jobsite clean-up or organize our supply room. The Schmidt family continues to be energized by its clients and the creativity and solutions that come with each project. We look forward to connecting again with past clients and meeting new ones.

The company’s work has been featured on the cover of Parade of Home magazine, on FOX9 news and they have been recognized for excellence by the Minnesota Chapter of the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (you can view all our associations here).

While recognition is appreciated, the Schmidts run a business based on attraction, not promotion, and have demonstrated that by growing their business based on building client relationships and referrals. That desire is what drives the attention to detail in all aspects of a project, and why all AMEK employees treat their client’s home, family and project as if it were their own. In addition to building client relationships, AMEK’s other core tenets include honesty, integrity and trust.

To maintain those principles, AMEK approaches each new project as the most important one the company has taken on for the simple reason that, for the client, it is the most important one.
