In 1981, Tony & Laura Kresic launched Municipal Marking Distributors Inc. (MMD) from their basement in Carpentersville, IL, primarily as a mail-order business selling supplies to local municipalities. Within a few years- after realizing a demand for survey lath and other supplies- they tapped into the land surveying market, and their signature oak lath and stake products were born.
The business expanded quickly, and by 1987 they moved to a building in Gilberts, IL, with a sharp focus on developing and maintaining close customer relations.
Today, MMD still operates from their office and warehouse in Gilberts, serving land surveyors, road builders & excavators, pipeline & other underground contractors, and utility and locating companies. They maintain over 11,000 square feet of inventory space, from which orders are expedited or picked up on-site.
