Our history

  • 1988 -

    Viking Brothers, Inc. was started in 1988 by Kevin and Craig Melby. Kevin coming from a long haul background and Craig from a logistical military background. VBI started out by subcontracting on the 355 tollway with two trucks that had to be worked on pretty much every night.

  • Today -

    Throughout the years VBI has updated their old equipment and migrated west out to Kane and Dupage counties where much of our work is performed today. Those two old trucks to our operation today are miles apart. VBI can handle single load orders all the way up to delivering several thousand tons of material to your job site in a day. Our logistical expertise will help you with your projects needs.
