About MSI Construction


The Beginning

MSI Construction, Inc. is a company with deep roots and vast construction experience in west central Indiana. Founded by Irvin M. Major in 1957 as the Major Lumber and Construction Company, MSI has evolved around a family business that began on State Road 163 just west of Clinton. The company is presently located at the Clinton Industrial Park, 2250 North Main Street Clinton


The Early Years

During the 1950's and 1960's Major Lumber and Construction Company was constructing public work and private projects. The company also began to specialize in large commercial and industrial buildings, including pre-engineered metal buildings which were becoming acceptable as a low cost and functional alternative to conventional material and design. In the 1970's the company was beginning to expand it's vision into the design and build market. With the business expansion 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, Inc. performed work for the U.S. Government, Corp of Engineers, State of Indiana, Local Government Agencies, Public Utilities, and Private Industry. Major & Son's, Inc. was a competitive bid and design-build contractor until 1994, when it's founder and president retired.


Name Shortened to MSI

MSI Construction, Inc. was formed in February 1994 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.
