Jump form concrete storage structures for grain and other commodities.
 
 

Experience
Building "Diamond Top" storage structures since 1911, our six member management team has more than 250 years of combined experience.

Construction
Jump-form reinforced concrete structures with emphasis on design and foundation work; bottom unloading with tunnels under the floor; conveniently placed gravity side draws for truck, rail or conveyor unloading; complete grain handling systems.

Flexibility
Our storage systems can integrate easily with your existing elevator or we can build an autonomous facility complete with elevator leg, conveying equipment, dump pit, temperature control, aeration equipment and electrical wiring.  All on a turn-key basis.

Quality
Fine workmanship, strength of reinforced concrete and long maintenance-free life have been the tradition of "Diamond Top" structures for more than 78 years.  Our storage structures are designed using the most up-to-date American Concrete Building Codes.

Warranty
Subject to proper maintenance and management, all structures designed and constructed by McPherson Concrete Storage Systems, Inc. are fully guaranteed against defects or failures for three years.

Price
Surprise!!  Jump-form concrete constructions prices are competitive with corrugated and bolted steel bins, and are far below slip form competition.  All-in pricing eliminates unpleasant surprises.

Our History...
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.

Consistency, quality control and the ability to bring the necessary resources to complete our projeconcrete grain elevatorscts 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.
