Our History

In 1919, Henry Klein returned from World War I service in Europe to team up with his brother-in-law Francis Xavier (F.X.) Dickert. With offices on University Avenue in Madison, WI, the paint contracting company included some glass assignments in both commercial and residential work.

F.X. Dickert's son, Phillip Joseph (P.J.) joined the firm as a painter in 1935. After a hiatus to train troops for World War II, he returned to the company. Henry Klein's son, Joseph H. (Joe) Klein, received his degree in mechanical engineering at U.W. Madison and a masters degree from the Chrysler Institute of engineering before joining the firm in 1946.

P.J. and Joe assumed management of Klein-Dickert in 1961 shortly after Henry Klein’s death. They expanded the company in 1968 and 1971 when operations were opened in Oshkosh and Milwaukee, respectively. The Milwaukee operation continues today as Klein-Dickert Milwaukee, Inc., and has contract glazing locations in Pewaukee and Madison.
