About

Rodney “Rod” E. Knox, owner of CONTRACTORS GROUP, INC., began his career in the construction industry in1970 upon returning to Des Moines from the Marine Corps.  He worked for Midwest Lumber until 1972 when he was hired by Custom Built Homes.  During his 13-year tenure with Custom Built Homes, Rod learned and perfected his craft.  In 1985, Rod opened NewCastle Corporation, Inc. focusing on building custom homes and senior townhomes.

The floods of 1993 proved very challenging for all in the construction industry, especially custom home building.  In the early part of 1994, Rod decided that he needed to diversify and expand into the commercial field.  As a result, CONTRACTORS GROUP, INC. was formed to reflect commercial and residential services, both new and remodeling.
