Rupe Building Company, a leading commercial construction company located in Tulsa, has announced that it is changing its corporate name to Rupe Helmer Group. The name change reflects the partnership between and founder John Rupe, Jr. and company President Mark Helmer. The new name is also part of a re-branding initiative to better align the company’s name with its broad offerings, including construction, development, real estate brokerage, and property management.
In 2010, company owner John Rupe, Jr. welcomed business partner Mark Helmer. “This joint venture led to tremendous growth for our organization. Together, we work as a team toward the common goal of making our organization even better. It was a logical move in the right direction to merge our talents, as the two principals of the company. As we grow the business, we are both jointly focused on building a legacy organization that will continue to thrive for many years to come,” says Rupe.
The new name, Rupe Helmer Group, allows the organization to emphasize a wide-range of service offerings. The name change also encompasses their affiliated company, Rupe Helmer (formerly known as Petrous). This affiliate focuses on commercial real estate brokerage and property management services in Tulsa, Oklahoma City, and Wichita, Kansas.
Helmer says, “The new name and continued positive direction is a benefit not only to our organization but to the clients we serve. Our plan for the future is strong, and growth is on our radar. We will continue to foster positive client relationships by always striving to achieve 100 percent client satisfaction.”
The new name is effective immediately and will be reflected in new company-wide branding beginning in May.
