Our story began in 1892, when three construction workers—and an old mule—joined forces to take on a variety of building projects in and around Fort Wayne, Indiana. From that humble endeavor, MKS has grown into a leading regional construction firm. Spearheaded by an integrated team of professionals experienced in every aspect of construction, our long list of satisfied customers continues to grow.

Like that old mule, we’ve stubbornly remained true to our core philosophy: “We will serve our clients' needs — no matter how large or small — by providing quality planning, design and building services."

The MKS home office is located in Fort Wayne, IN. Although the majority of our projects have been within the Midwest, we have traveled as far as Argentina to support our customer's building needs. We have been turning visions into reality for well over a century. We plan, design and build. The MKS single-source approach saves you time, trouble and money. 

MKS has been family owned and operated since 1892. The fourth-generation proprietors are brothers Doug and Bill Kinder, both graduates of Purdue University with degrees in Engineering and Construction. The Kinder family is intimately involved and committed to every project from beginning to end.

A seasoned roster of professionally trained project managers, estimators, project superintendents and craftsmen possessing a multitude of experience, assure your project will be led with experience and care. Companies choose MKS because of our proven track record — a reputation for excellence earned over 128 years.

When you engage MKS, you've chosen a complete plan-design-build team. We respect the fact that you have your own job to do. Our single-source solution will save you time and stress while delivering exceptional value. MKS provides one-stop, turn-key expertise for houses of worship, healthcare facilities, senior-care residences, industrial facilities, academic and athletic facilities, office building and commercial buildings of all kinds and size.

Whether you are breaking ground on a brand-new facility, repurposing an existing structure or just looking for a masterplan, we assume the role of trusted partner throughout the entire plan-design-build process.
