In his early years, Alvin Saur worked for a local contractor, Arther Weidner. After several years of working with Mr. Weidner, Alvin was called to serve with the U.S Army in Korea.
Alvin returned home and resumed his job with Weidner. Alvin married Clara Knoll and they resided in the Bulverde, TX area. The Alvin Saur family raised three children Carol, Wayne and Cheryl.
Saur Construction was formed! Mr. Weidner passed away and his widow offered to sell all of the company equipment to Alvin and Clara. This offer led to the beginnings of Saur Construction located out of Alvin and Clara’s garage off of Smithson Valley Road in Bulverde, Texas.
Alvin Saur cleared out the little town of Hancock which is now under water and called Canyon Lake. Saur construction built the spillway and helped on part of the dam.
Alvin moved his family and the Saur Construction offices to the Saur family homestead which he purchased from his father.
Saur Construction branched out and developed approximately 20 Golf Courses which are still active today! Saur Construction was incorporated in 1979 becoming Saur Construction, Inc.
The 80’s were very successful as Saur Construction, Inc. helped develop Fair Oaks Ranch, Timberwood Park, McCullough Land Company and numerous State Highway jobs.
The 90’s brought us Cordillera Rach near Bergheim, Texas where we completed 15 units.
Alvin passed away and left the business to his wife Clara. 2002 Wayne Saur, who grew up working with/for his father, inherited the family business. Wayne carried on the business for several years on the family property.
Today, Wayne Saur along with his son Seth Saur run the family business outside of Comfort, TX where the family resides.
Wayne’s nephews Wesley Blackman and Hudson, McCall, daughter–in-law, Lindsay Saur, as well as wife Dea Saur all help in the family business.
Saur Construction has now been in business over 58 years and has 13 employees, some of whom have been employed with Saur for over 30 years.
