Our company was founded in 1984 by Jack Breon and incorporated in the state of Illinois as Illini Specialties, Inc., a manufacturers' representative agency engaged in the promotion, sales and erection of construction products and services.

A name change in 1999 to Illini Construction Specialties, Inc. (ICS) enabled us to better identify our market focus.

ICS started as a family run business and remains so today with a daughter Daniele Masiak; and a grandson, Erik Anderson actively involved in the business. In addition, we are proud to include Diane Smothers, Randy Ford and Ryan Murphy. ICS is pleased to offer the construction community a team that represents a combined total of 131 years experience in this field!
