A Second-Generation Business Survives and Thrives In Challenging Times

February 17, 2021

Long-time Caterpillar customer, Plote Construction Inc., has humble roots. The Illinois-based company started with one man, one dozer and one truck. That was 56-years ago. Today, due to the Plote family’s strong work ethic and vision, Plote Construction is an industry leader in heavy highway construction, excavation, aggregates, commercial contracting, real estate development, snow removal, asphalt and concrete production, and environmental contracting – both in the public and private sectors.
