Passing the Viking Torch!
A few years back, Viking was looking to expand its operations. We looked at going to Boise, Moses Lake, or Montana to develop communities. However, we turned these down and chose to start up in the Tri-Cities area because of the strong employment, amenities and the beauty of the natural settings. We want our owners to enjoy prosperity and belong to cities with plenty of outdoor recreation and civic pride.
Wendell Olson’s son, Ryan Olson, is carrying the torch for this Tri-Cities expansion. Since he opened our Tri-Cities office in Kennewick, WA, in 2008 we have sold 80 homes in the area. Ryan has been working with his father his entire life through almost every job title in the construction industry.
“I have seen, accomplished, learned and grown tremendously through the teachings of my father and through the lessons of up and down real esate cycles. I have now become a part owner of the new Tri-Cities branch along with the backing of a valueable asset of Wendell Olson as the other partner. I have moved to Kennewick and we are now a local contractor looking for another 30 years of success. Together, Wendell and I are going to continue to strive forward and produce a valuable product with an outstanding service throughout a quality building and business practice. " - Ryan Olson.
Through the hard work, dedication and passion for building, Viking Builders will work in the same unique structure as Viking Construction and offer semi-custom homes.
