Tri-state Enterprises, Inc. (TEI) was incorporated in the State of Illinois on May 20, 1985. During the first two years, TEI's business activites were limited to providing small pre-engineered metal building systems (approximately 4,000 SF to 20,000 SF) exclusively in the Chicago Metropolitian area. Over the next three years, TEI expanded operations by providing Design / Build Services for small to medium-size building systems (approximately 4,000 SF to 50,000 SF).
Fast forward to the early nineties where TEI first began to venture into providing General Construction Services for project budgets ranging from $100,000 to $2,000,000. A few hard-earned years later, TEI was awarded a bid to construct four large metal buildings for The Chicago Recycling and Recovery Program (also known as the "Blue Bag" Program). The total project exceeded $10,000,000. The size of these buildings varied anywhere from 80,000 SF to 144,000 SF. Successful completion of these projects helped pave the way for the growth of TEI as it exists today.
TEI at present is one of the largest Pre-engineered Building System Contractors in the Midwest providing Design / Build and General Construction Services. In addition to the Metal Building Systems, TEI has completed various conventional Industrial/Institutional Building Projects, Tank Farms and Water Storage Projects.
