Van Goethem Septic Systems, Inc.
Van Goethem Septic Systems, Inc. was established in 1974 by Harold and Karen Van Goethem. The business began as a side job for Harold and Karen while they operated the family dairy farm. In 1975 Harold and Karen sold the dairy farm and began a full-time septic system business known as Van Goethem and Son Construction.
The year 1991 saw the addition of Lonny Van Goethem as a partner in the Van Goethem & Son Construction business. Lonny had been working for the company since its inception during the summers and on weekends. He began working full-time for the company in 1988. In 1993, Lonny purchased the remaining interest of Van Goethem & Son Construction from his parents and renamed it Van Goethem Septic Systems, Inc.
The company is now currently owned and operated by Lonny Van Goethem. Lonny currently employs 2 full-time field technicians. The third generation of Van Goethems, Lonny’s son Elliot, is now also working for the company full time and taking on an expanded role.
