Chief Buildings is a U.S.-based company that designs, details, and manufactures metal building systems. Our products are made at our plants in Grand Island, NE; Rensselaer, IN; and Lancaster, SC, and we buy our raw materials from U.S. manufacturers. We service all fifty states in almost every business sector and though we are not the biggest in the industry, we let our reputation define our success.
You might say we play by our own set of rules. We never outsource work, especially design or detailing, and we never offshore jobs. We could do things differently, maybe even cut some costs along the way, but that’s not our only goal. Keeping jobs in our communities and abiding by our own set of standards is what defines us.
Although we’re large enough to service industries across U.S. and international markets, we still operate like a family company and treat each other as such. The employees walking up and down our halls all greet each other by first name. We extend that same friendly hello to all our builders. Interacting daily with people you like doing business with is our best-kept secret of success and longevity.
Construction can be a grueling business—demanding owners, unreliable subs, change orders, unpredictable weather, more change orders, and never enough time. Chief Buildings is the calm in the storm. We’re a model for stability and believe our primary business is relationship building. You can trust every Chief Buildings Independent Authorized Builder believes in those same things too. General contractors and metal building erectors in the know partner with Chief Buildings.
Chief Buildings is a specialized division of Chief Industries, Inc., a privately held company still owned by the same family that first opened its doors in 1954. Never bought. Never sold.
Three generations strong, we are…Trusted. Tested. True.
