API Construction Corp and its affiliated companies Land Construction Corp and LandRail Inc. are a group of diversified companies serving Northern Indiana, South Central Michigan and Northwestern Ohio. As a group we offer asphalt paving, asphalt production, asphalt and concrete recycling, earthmoving, underground utilities, and railroad construction services to our customers.
API Construction Corp was formed in 1992 by Kirk Braun and his father Jack Braun after purchasing the assets of Asphalt Paving Inc. Their goal was to enter the asphalt paving business in order to complement Land Inc., the earthmoving and underground utility business that was owned by Jack. In 2001 Kirk purchased the assets of Land Inc. from Jack and renamed the company Land Construction Corp. Both Kirk and Jack are licensed professional engineers in the state of Indiana, holding Bachelor Degrees in Civil Engineering. Kirk Braun also holds a Master’s Degree in Business Administration.
During the 1960’s after graduating from college, Jack gained railroad experience while working for the Pennsylvania Railroad. It was while running the operations of Land Inc. in the 1980’s that Jack decided to capitalize on his expertise in railroads. In 1989 Jack formed Landrail Inc. to build and maintain railroad sidings for industries. Jack continues to oversee the day to day operations of this company.
Today the company’s strengths complement each other. They have grown slowly but steadily over the years by hiring and maintaining a high quality workforce while emphasizing personal service and attention to customers.
