History of American Construction Company

American Construction Company has a long proud history in the field of marine construction, dredging, and pile driving. Founded in 1903 by Captain Harry Ramwell, American Construction was originally located in Port Townsend, Washington. It was soon moved to Everett, an area that was experiencing rapid growth. In 2006 American Construction moved to Tacoma, on the Hylebos Waterway.

American Construction's longevity and stability is demonstrated by its loyal and experienced workforce. Many of today's workers are children of former employees.

We have stood through the test of time, two world wars and the great depression of the 1930s. The 1950s brought economic expansion and growth, while the environmental concerns of the late 1960s required major adaptations. Through the energy crisis and inflation in the 1970s, we resolved to survive.

Even in these days of intense competition, American Construction stands out as a firm that has the right equipment, the right people, and the right attitude to get the job done.
