Our Companies

McCarthy Improvement

McCarthy Improvement Company’s expertise in concrete and asphalt paving combined with capabilities in earth moving, underground utilities, bridge building and repair provides comprehensive, turn-key solutions for a broad range of heavy construction projects.

Our integrated services eliminate the tangle of subcontractors, cutting costs as well as headaches. Harmonizing this efficient approach with our reliable expertise and commitment to quality is why we’ve been industry leaders for more than a century. We’ve built a solid reputation throughout the Midwest and Southeast for completing projects in the best possible way, on time and within budget.

Whether your need is single scope or wide-ranging, we provide ideal solutions for commercial and public sector projects. Private developers trust us to establish the groundwork for educational, medical and industrial facilities, shopping centers, and residential sub-divisions that often include lakes and golf courses. Public agencies rely on us for rapid completion of interstate and highway, airport, railway, and bridge projects, as well as street and sidewalk projects. Both look to us to review plans and make option recommendations.

Bush Construction

Bush Construction is grounded in our commitment to the principles of honesty, integrity, and mutual respect. We are true to our word and fair to our clients, our subcontractor and supplier partners, and our employees.

Because of our excellent relationships within our local subcontractor and supplier market, we are consistently able to offer pricing that is more competitive than that of our local general contractor peers.

We strive to set the standard in company culture by hiring talented, committed individuals who adhere to the same principles upon which our firm was founded. At Bush Construction, we impose the highest ethical standards upon ourselves.

“Building on a foundation of Integrity” is not just our tag-line; it is our way of life.

Clinton Engineering

Clinton Engineering specializes in design-build, new construction, rehabilitation, turn-key metal buildings, and renovation of commercial, industrial, and municipal projects. Our diverse and experienced work force self performs in multiple trades; including carpentry, concrete paving, cast-in-place concrete, underground utilities, steel fabrication, steel erection, and excavation. Such versatility provides better control of project scheduling and project costs. We have an incomparable knowledge and understanding of the local landscape; including local government and codes, local utilities, and especially the availability of quality local subcontractors. Since 1926, we’ve built many of the landmark streets, bridges, and buildings in the greater Clinton area; and we have a great presence with the many industrial clients of the region.

Linwood Mining

Linwood Mining originally operated as an open-cut limestone quarry. However, because of demand for the uniqueness and high purity of the company’s limestone and exceptionally pure calcium carbonate, mining was extended to an underground operation. As demand for Linwood’s products increased through the years, the company introduced new equipment and technology to accommodate expansion of the mines and meet customer requirements.

Linwood supplies customers with a complete line of calcium carbonate, lime products, and aggregates that meet their individual specifications.

In addition, a proven limestone reserve of more than 400 million tons assures that Linwood will operate at high capacity levels into the 22nd century.

AMSCO Ash Management

AMSCO takes in approved customer by-products and processes them to make a flowable fill. The fill is injected into abandoned sections of old underground mine workings to stabilize those areas for the long term.

Oertel Metal Works

If you need a custom fabrication, made of metal, Oertel works for you.

Our experience, dependability, and vision have given us the opportunity to work for customers in the mining, rail car, food service, recycling, machining, and material handling industries. Although, we can partner with any industry in need of custom metal fabrication.

We have extensive experience in the fabrication of safety and guarding solutions, handrails, spouting, conveyors, and machinery as well as stairs and platforms for industrial clients. We have two automated plasma cutters and plate rolling and forming capabilities. Present us with a challenge and we will design, create, and install the product the right way, on time, the first time.

Superior Minerals

Superior Minerals Company is a producer of high-quality mineral fillers and granules located in the Twin Cities right off of the Minnesota river. Our rock is mined at our sister company—Linwood Mining and Minerals—and then barged to our unloading facility in Savage, Minnesota.

We process high-calcium limestone into specified granules and powders for use in animal feed, roofing shingles, fluidized-beds, plastic, and a variety of other commercial and industrial applications. We also have the ability to load and unload barges due to our location on the Minnesota River.

 

Blackheart Slag

At Blackheart Slag, we process steel slag, which is a byproduct from making steel, crushing and screening it to make aggregate chips and sand for asphalt. Much of the slag begins life as lime which is sold to SSAB by Linwood for the purification of the steel.

Approximately 80% of our product is produced to go into SMA (Stone Mastic Asphalt) hot mix asphalt. With the help of our sister company, McCarthy Improvement’s asphalt division, you’re able to see our product in both Iowa and Illinois on Interstate 80.
