Seneca, SC – On November 4, Seneca Rotary Club recognized Kroeger Marine Construction with the G-W Ballenger Award. The Award is the highest honor given to local businesses that have displayed stewardship in economic leadership and development in the community.
In 1985, Dave and Sarah Kroeger created Kroeger Marine Construction, a small family business serving the communities of Lake Keowee, Hartwell, Jocassee, Thurmond and Bowen. Kroeger Marine Construction became Oconee’s first barge business to follow erosion control methods and patented a dock access ladder for those with physical handicaps.
Dave was raised in Hebron, Ohio and entered the Coast Guard where he was stationed between Anchorage, Alaska and Honolulu, Hawaii. After his service, Dave moved to Seneca, South Carolina to be closer to his family. He kicked off his career in real estate where he learned about the need for safer and easier access to the water. Utilizing his skills, Dave started Kroeger Marine Construction which has excelled for over 30 years, offering unmatched experience and quality.
