Company History

Today the name Team Elmer’s encompasses Elmer’s Crane & Dozer, Inc., Elmer’s Esphalt, and Elmer’s Concrete, among others. With all of our improvements, we have only begun to scratch the surface of what is to come with the future of Elmer’s. We can only reach that future by continuing our commitment to integrity, quality and service. Team Elmer’s, a family owned company since 1956, is comprised of six divisions: asphalt, excavation, concrete, aggregate, trucking and crane and rigging.

Our Traverse City, Michigan-based company proudly employs more than 450 skilled professionals, and operates out of 15 Michigan locations.

Launched in 1956 by Elmer Schaub, the seven-employee company was bought in 1977 by Butch Broad, an energetic entrepreneur who steadily expanded Elmer’s for decades. Today, our company is led by Broad’s three children and an experienced management team.

Our professionals have led and supported many of the largest and most complex projects in the region over the past decades, including the construction of some of the most prominent public and private schools, churches, state and federal roads and bridges, shopping centers, medical centers, hotels, and public institutions throughout the state. Satisfied clients include the U.S. government, the State of Michigan, virtually every county road commission in the areas Team Elmer’s serves, Michigan’s top construction companies, and tens of thousands of private companies and individuals.
