About Us

Experience, Service and Quality–
That’s Who We Are


Our company was founded by Leo Welling in 1981 in Brighton, Illinois. Leo built his reputation as a residential carpenter working one on one with his customers to provide the highest quality building experience possible.

Leo’s strong connection to his rural community helped him to develop his skills in additional types of construction. Post-frame buildings, garages, workshops and livestock buildings soon became a major part of his construction company.

Welling Construction Incorporated began erecting post frame buildings through a local connection in Godfrey, Illinois and completed thousands of these projects all around the countryside.

Leo was extremely happy to grow his company when his son, Frank, joined in 2000. Leo mentored Frank and passed to him the skills and work ethic that had been a main-stay of his career. Over the years Leo has shared his love of construction and dedication to quality craftsmanship with many others, including long-term employee and nephew, Jeff Welling.

In 2011, Welling Construction Inc. partnered with Energy Panel Structures, Inc. Frank and Leo were excited to add such a diverse product line to compliment their now over thirty years of construction experience.

As construction methods and materials change, Welling Construction has kept an eye on the future while focusing on their commitment to their customers, family and community.
