This Week’s Highlighted Local Business:
Tonn & Blank Construction – September 21, 2022
Tonn and Blank, for its 100 year history of operations, has been located in La Porte County. The company has been the leading construction management and design-build firm in the Midwest. They are also one of our county’s biggest supporters of nonprofit causes and organizations. In 2020, Tonn and Blank established the Tonn and Blank Off-site Construction Division located in the Northpoint Development Midwest Trade Center (MTC). That company is located at 6500 U S. 421 in Westville Indiana. Off-site construction is faster, safer, more regulated and requires less coordination efforts resulting in more productivity and improved quality control. The new 85,000 square foot facility maximizes their self-reliance and completive advantage by improving each project’s quality, safety scheduling and site logistics. All aspects of a project can be constructed in the facility including bathroom pods, exam rooms, offices, electrical and data distributions rooms and exterior wall systems.
The company has approximately 35 employees at the Off-Site Construction Facility. Nationally, Tonn and Blank employs over 250 people. All insurance, 401K and additional benefits are paid by the employer. The company hires through the local building trades.
