History

John F. Otto began his construction company in 1947 with little more than ability and enthusiasm to his name. Yet even at the start, he had a clear vision of what he wanted: a company with a core of skilled professionals that could consistently deliver high quality construction at a competitive price.

In 1971, Carl Otto (2nd generation) took over as President, and continued the family legacy of creating relationships and building for tomorrow. His commitment to philanthropic projects further established Otto within the Sacramento community. In 2000, Allison Otto (3rd generation) joined the family business and launched the company’s marketing department and in 2021, assumed the role of President & CEO.

Today, Otto Construction creates award-winning multimillion-dollar facilities throughout Northern and Central California, continuing the legacy of Otto Construction and the core principles that have guided the company for almost 75 years.
