Background
Trepte Construction is San Diego’s oldest construction company. Moritz Trepte, an immigrant from Germany, founded the Trepte Construction Company in 1895. Trepte originally migrated to San Francisco in 1890, and then came to San Diego to join his brother-in-law, Herman Stroele, in starting a carpentry and cabinet making business, Trepte & Stroele. It lasted a year before Stroele moved to Los Angeles for what he viewed as greater opportunity. Trepte remained in San Diego where his place of business was a small cabinet shop.
