The Berlin Construction Company is the successor the famed Berlin Iron Bridge Company. The Berlin Iron Bridge Co. was absorbed by the American Bridge Co. in 1900, thus ending the companies 23 year existence. In 1901 several executives of the defunct Berlin Iron Bridge Co. left the American Bridge Company and formed the Berlin Construction Company and continued to fabricate bridges for many years.

This company is still in business, but ceased bridge fabrication after the 30's
