Kienstra Ready Mix Concrete supplies ready mix concrete across the St. Louis Regional Area in both Missouri and Illinois. Ted Kienstra Sr. founded the company and began in business in the early 1940's as a material supply company in Ferguson, Missouri. He began concrete production in 1947 with a business practice of delivering a quality product at a fair price along with excellent service. That one small plant in North County has grown into multiple companies and locations today.
Ted Kienstra Jr. started working full time with his father in 1965. Ted, Jr. was the driving force in growing the company which became known as Kienstra Enterprises, Inc. Ted currently serves as the Chairman of the Kienstra companies. Ted has always believed in “doing things the right way” for the benefit of the industry and our companies. Ted has always been known as a man of his word. He values: competence, fairness, honesty, loyalty and quality.
Dan Bruns, Ted’s son-in-law, joined Kienstra Enterprises in 1994. His career path has covered multiple aspects of the organization and today he currently holds the title of President. Dan’s belief is that attitude, ability and work ethic define the character of the Kienstra Team. He has adopted the core values that Ted, Jr. has instilled as core values of the Kienstra companies today. He insists that they will be a constant now and in the future as we grow.
