Closner Construction was organized in the mid-1960's. During the early years, construction crews were hired on a per-job basis to keep the company small and the jobs select. At the foundation of Closner Construction was a reputation of high quality and dependability.
We have grown since then. We are a corporation now, with over 40 full time employees. Closner Construction crews are found hard at work all over Michigan's Upper Peninsula on any size job. We have expanded our operations to the western U.P. by opening an office in Hancock, Michigan in 2012. Quality, workmanship and dependability are still the trademarks of the company.
We are members of the Associated General Contractors of Michigan, the Marquette Builders Exchange and Keewenaw Economic Development Alliance. Labor is drawn from skilled and professionally trained union reserves so projects can be completed on time. The firm supports apprenticeship and other training programs so future labor pools will have the necessary skills to maintain the Closner Construction reputation into the future. We are also members of the Upper Peninsula Labor Council which is an association of unions and contractors working together to promote industry and job safety.
Safety is of primary importance. Our employees continue to train through weekly Tool Box safety meetings as well as taking part in U.P. Safety Days sponsored by the Michigan Chapter A.G.C. Employees are trained in lead and asbestos awareness, first aid, CPR training and mine safety.
