About Us

CME Corporation is a merit shop with expertise in commercial design-build and general contracting. Founded in 1972 and based in Fort Wayne, Indiana, CME serves clients in a number of industries, including food processing, warehousing and distribution, manufacturing, commercial, retail, medical, dental and institutional. It starts with the right floor, a great roof, a solid envelope and intelligent floor design. We manage our work with an emphasis on team planning, project management and communication. 

Operating with high ethical and operational standards, our belief in honesty, integrity and commitment means 80% of our business is repeat engagements with past and current clients. We’re not building a structure but rather constructing your vision for smoother operations, efficiency and profitability
