The Terre Haute Chamber of Commerce would like to congratulate MSI Construction on 60 years in business!
Clinton, IN– The Major Lumber and Construction Company was founded on April 17, 1957 by Irvin M. Major. The company grew from one man to one of Western Indiana’s largest construction company.
During the 1950’s and 1960’s Major Construction Company was building a variety of public and private projects. The company also began to specialize in large commercial and industrial buildings, including pre-engineered metal buildings, which was becoming a low cost and functional alternative to conventional material and design. In the 1970’s the company began to expand its vision into the design and build market. With the business expanding into the general construction and build area, Irvin Major decided to change the company name to Major & Son’s, Inc. General Contractors to reflect the primary operation of the company. Major & Son’s performed work for the U.S. Government, Corp of Engineers, State of Indiana, Local Government Agencies, Public Utilities, and Private Industry. Major & Son’s was a competitive bid and design-build contractor until 1994, when it’s founder and president retired.
In February 1994, the company was renamed MSI Construction by the founder’s two sons, John V. Major and Irvin A.(Tony) Major, the second generation of builders and contractors. MSI Construction, Inc. was formed to perform construction services for design-build and project management. As the economy prospered, MSI Construction, Inc. began to expand out into the competitive bid and private construction market, performing as a full service general contractor, constructing projects in the states of Indiana, Illinois, and Michigan.
MSI Construction, Inc. is proud of its family history in the construction industry. Each project is completed using the best material and the most qualified union craftsman and construction managers in the area.
