Lambert Anderson, the founder of
the McPherson Concrete companies, built and sold his first farm
silo in 1911 when McPherson Concrete Products was incorporated
as one of the early businesses in McPherson, Kansas. Over
the next 60+ years, McPherson Concrete Products, with its
distinctive "Diamond Top" signature, erected thousands of farm
silos throughout Kansas and the surrounding states.
In 1977, the Anderson family,
owners from the company's outset until the present, decided to
form McPherson Concrete Storage Systems, Inc. (MCSS, Inc.) and
to dedicate the efforts of this new entity to the commercial
grain storage construction business.
During the past 30 years. MCSS,
Inc. has become the predominant concrete grain storage
construction company in the Midwest and Plains states.
With our extensive inventory of jump-form construction sets
ranging in diameters from 20' up to 90', we have built
over 600 grain, and industrial storage structures
throughout our trade area, representing practically all the new
concrete construction since our inception in 1977.
Consistency, quality control and
the ability to bring the necessary resources to complete our
projects in a timely manner are the hallmarks of MCSS, Inc.
These results are in no small part due to continuity in
management and ownership. Roy House, a 42 year employee of
McPherson Concrete, has been the MCSS, Inc. Sales Manager since
the company was formed. Robbin Kratzer, with more than 45
years experience in silo construction, has been the MCSS, Inc.
Construction Manager since 1977. The company blessed with

control personnel whose products are unsurpassed anywhere in the
