Bill and John Hasse are the third generation to run Hasse Construction Company, Inc. The history of this business has made up all that Hasse Construction is today. The business was first known as Public Construction Company, dating back to 1920. From 1920 to 1933 William A. Hasse worked at the business as a bookkeeper. He won $18,000 in the Irish Sweepstakes in 1933, which was a lot of money following the depression. He then bought out one of the partners in the company. In 1956, William A. Hasse Sr. and William A. Hasse Jr. bought out the other partner of the business. The two then became part owners of the company, which then changed its name from Public Construction Company to Hasse Construction Company, Inc.
In 1966 William A. Hasse Sr. retired, and William A. Hasse Jr. took over as President. William A. Hasse III (Bill) joined the company as a Project Manager in 1982. William A. Hasse Jr. unexpectedly passed away in 1984. Bill took on this challenge head on, and officially became president on January 1, 1985, at the age of 27. Bill’s youngest brother John joined the company on April 1, 1991.
With lots of hard work, a good reputation built by Bill and John’s father and grandfather, and a little luck, the company worked its way out of debt, paid off the bank, and expanded its opportunities. Since then Hasse has expanded to many sectors including General Contractor, Design/Build Services, Excavation and Site Work, Sewer and Underground Utilities, Concrete Construction, Office Building, Structural Steel and Metal Building Erection. Hasse hires good quality, hard working, experienced personnel and keep them trained in the different types of construction. Thanks to all of their hard work and dedication, Bill and John Hasse have successfully been able to secure a place for Hasse Construction for generations to come.

What Our Clients Say
|"It has been a pleasure working with the professionals at Hasse Construction for the last ten years. From their office staff and behind the scenes coordination and information sharing to the job superintendent and in the field adjustments, the discussions and decisions were made with the project owner and ultimate user in mind. Two examples are the award winning Lost Mash Golf Course Clubhouse – a prairie style multi-use year round banquet, restaurant, lounge and Pro Shop two story facility and the George lake Pedestrian Bridge over Indianapolis Boulevard/New York Avenue that was built at budget. The professional and personal relationships that have developed will continue into the future as we strive to grow economically for the betterment of the Calumet Region’s quality of life."|
