In 1994, David Kruse began working on cars in his home garage. Within a few short years, he'd grow this into the successful, well-known repair shop Kruse's Auto Center that is well-loved and still enjoys great success in the Midland Empire today. Using the same formula for success he'd originated with the auto shop, he built his first spec house in 2004.
After the successful turnaround of the spec house, David made the decision to sell Kruse's Auto Center to long-time employees Craig Collins and Jeff Schomberg.
David then ventured into the concrete industry and built the Meadow View Estates subdivision in Savannah, Missouri on Parkview Drive. With the completion of the subdivision and incorporation in 2005, River Ridge was officially on the map. Concrete and excavation services were added to the quickly growing business.
Eventually, River Ridge would acquire Woodworker's Corner and add custom cabinetry and hardwood flooring to their ever expanding line of custom high-end products and services.
In 2011, River Ridge acquired a permanent base of operations located at 13624 CR 354 off of 169 Hwy north of St. Joseph, Missouri. Functioning as a combination shop/office and vehicle depot, it had served as the headquarters for River Ridge Improvements for many years. During this time, the company has expanded and evolved with the times, always working to bring customers the most up-to-date and innovative improvements and products available. Soon, River Ridge Improvements began including modern, outdoor leisure-living spaces and smart home technology as part of their standard repertoire.
As demand for the high-quality custom homes, innovative remodeling and contemporary outdoor spaces that has become synonymous with the name River Ridge Improvements grew, expansion was again necessary and in 2021 River Ridge Improvements bought the building located at 1202 Faraon St. in downtown St. Joseph, Missouri.
While we are currently remodeling our new space at 1202 Faraon St., River Ridge Improvements is excited to keep the showroom open to the public and welcomes everyone during this transition period!
