Americon is a locally owned and operated construction firm from Tomah, Wisconsin. Brian Buswell, at the age of 24, founded the company in Norwalk, Wisconsin during the year of 1980. Originally, the company that was founded as a lumberyard & residential home builder; has evolved into a commercial construction and development firm. Three years after Brian founded the company, he joined forces with childhood friend, Todd Page. Todd, an experienced accountant, immediately made a positive impact on the business and its direction of the future.
In 1994, the company’s first retail store with building materials was opened in Tomah, Wisconsin. The store was, and still is, a member of the national “Do it Best” hardware chain, and named “All American Do it Center.” They closed the Norwalk lumberyard in transition to the new Tomah Store. In 2004, a second Center was built by Americon and opened up in Sparta, and a third in 2014, serving the community of Richland Center. Along the way, Americon has built or remodeled many different types of buildings, including Churches, Restaurants or Retail buildings, Professional & Office Buildings, Educational Institutions, Multi-Family and Senior Living Facilities and more.
Today, Brian is the company’s President, and although partner Todd is making a gradual step away into retirement, he is still involved on a daily basis. Brian’s son, Matthew, is in position to lead the company into the future. He holds a bachelors degree in Business management, a minor in economics & a post-bachelors degree in Construction Management from the university of Minnesota, bringing a plethora of knowledge and business acumen to the company.
