— Historic Jackson County —

    In

the late 1920's Sam Swensen, uncle of Cliff Nelson & Milt Lunda, started
the

construction co. in Mt. Horeb, WI. It was relocated in 1938 to its present location in Brockway, WI. In the mid 1940's the company was named Nelson Construction Co. after its principal

owner, Cliff Nelson. Cliff's cousin, Milt Lunda the present chairman of the board, joined the company in 1953 and in 1966
became the president and largest shareholder. At this time the company was re-named Lunda Construction Company. In 1977 with the




acquisition of Phoenix Steel Co. of Eau Claire, employment peaked to 1100 people. Paul Gehl was pres. from 1988-1994, then Larry Lunda, Milt's son who is president today. The company
has grown to be one of the largest bridge building companies in the Midwest. It has six locations in Minnesota & Wisconsin.  
Bridges built or repaired approximately 4,000.



We
are
proud of "Lunda Construction Co." & it's long history.
