Ramsey EDA Recognizes Capstone Homes as 2017 Business of the Year

Capstone Business of the Year

Capstone Homes has been selected by the Ramsey Economic Development Authority as the 2017 Ramsey Business of the Year!  Nominees for this award are chosen by the EDA based on their exemplary standing in each of these four categories: length of tenure in Ramsey, number of employees, community involvement, and what makes the company unique and innovative.

Capstone Homes was established in Ramsey in 2006 and has experienced exponential growth over the past decade.  The company is made up of 40 full-time employees and an average of 300 subcontractors.  It also features a 7,000 square foot Design Center located in Ramsey.  Capstone Homes is the largest locally owned builder in Minnesota by number of units built per year. 

You may have seen Capstone’s work in neighborhoods near you.  Additions of the Brookfield development, Villages of Sunfish Lake, and Sweetbay Ridge are projects recently completed by Capstone Homes, equating to over 100 homes built in the past three (3) years.  They are also working on another larger project in Ramsey- stay tuned for details.

The company is guided by core values of Integrity, Humility, Service, Excellence, Trustworthiness and Growth.  Capstone Homes’ commitment to serve the housing industry, homeowners, employees and the Ramsey community is their most prominent feature.  Their mission is to not only build quality homes at an exceptional value, but also to serve others.  Their staff has developed a program, called “Capstone Community”, which encourages a positive impact on the community through coordinating various community service efforts such as participating in Feed My Starving Children, packaging food for the homeless, and holding diaper and food drives. Capstone Homes also partners with various local organizations, from adoption agencies to programs that provide financial and material assistance to low income and homeless families in need.

The City of Ramsey and the Ramsey EDA was pleased to recognize Capstone Homes as the 2017 Ramsey Business of the Year at the Ramsey EDA Business Appreciation Golf Event on August 15.  You can look for Capstone Homes as the Grand Marshal in the Happy Days Parade on Saturday, September 9.  Please join us in congratulating them on their deserving achievement!
