The family-owned business has a long history in Town Bank, dating back to the 1950s when Robert (Bob) and Miriam Obermeier purchased a vacant lot in Town Bank. Bob was employed as a machinist in Philadelphia, so he began building his new home in Town Bank with his brother-in-law Buddy, a Philadelphia Firefighter, until the house was complete. In 1964, Bob decided to give up his job in Philadelphia so his family could move to Town Ban, which he commonly referred to as “God’s country.”

After years working his way up at Mitnick Builders from laborer to foreman, where he built homes in North Cape May and Tranquility, Bob decided it was time to start his own business. In 1970, Bob started Town Bank Builders with his wife Miriam, who ran the office and served as the backbone of the business. Bob built his company on the principle of treating each client with respect and courtesy, with customer satisfaction as his top priority. He was extremely involved in the community, serving as Vice President and President of the Lower Township Chamber of Commerce, so giving his customers the best experience possible was always top of mind.

A few years after the business was established, his son Bob Jr. took over business sales for his father, while his son Scott took over outside field operations. Bob’s son Gary also worked for the construction business, before moving to Florida with his family. Today, Bob and Scott continue to carry on their father’s legacy after his retirement in 1991. Sadly, Bob Obermeier passed away in 2014 but his family and friends will forever remember Bob for his heart of gold, helpfulness, and strong work ethic.

Bob’s grandsons, Robert and Brandon, also work in the business, serving as the third generation of Obermeier’s to continue on their grandfather’s dream. The family members continue to carry out Bob Obermeier’s top principles to this day and are proud to serve every customer with the same respect and courtesy Bob Obermeier had for his customers.
