Timewarp with us back to 1981...

Tony & Laura Kresic founded MMD from their basement in Carpentersville, IL. What started as a mail-order biz selling supplies to local municipalities quickly expanded to the land surveying market where our signature oak lath and stake products were born. 

We moved shop to Gilberts, IL in 1987 to better serve land surveyors, road builders/excavators, pipeline/other underground contractors, and utility/locating companies. 

Kat Gordon took the helm in 2009 after Tony & Laura retired, and she remains fiercely committed to upholding MMD’s original vision and philosophy of quality products, superior delivery, economical pricing, and top-notch customer service.


We’re a culture-focused company that aims to have a BIG positive effect in our community (and beyond). 

We think about the impact that our choices will have well into the future, and we try to come up with ways to do things that will benefit everyone who walks into our building or receives a delivery from us. We’re all about doing good for our fellow humans (more on this in our blog post, One Big Human Family).

In 2020, we founded our sister company, Flat Can Recycling to help mitigate the negative effects of aerosol paint on our environment. Read more about how we’ve been recycling since 2010 in our blog post, Where Pride Comes From).
