Who We Are
Founded by George W. Koss in 1912 in Des Moines, Iowa, Koss Construction Company today is a leading general contractor specializing in highway and airfield construction headquartered in Topeka, Kansas. This one-hundred years of history is the foundation that allows Koss to deliver a wide array of products and services to a multitude of owners with a consistent emphasis on safety, quality, and integrity. The men and women who have joined us know that we are big enough to do what we say, and small enough to manage our every endeavor as though it is our most important. You are invited to the History page of this site where you will find a link to our electronic library which contains the archives of this 100 years of construction.
The company today is equipped and staffed to deliver virtually every surfacing product being designed today for streets, highways, industrial sites, and airfields, including:
- Portland Cement Concrete Pavement
- Hot-Mixed Asphalt Cement Pavement
- Stabilized Subgrades
- Plant Mixed Stabilized Base Courses
- Cold-in-Place Recycled Asphalt Pavement
- Cold Milling
While the fleet of equipment dedicated to projects the company commits to is impressive, it is often the smallest of items that is the most noteworthy to those the company works with and for. On the shirt sleeves of many of the company employees who refer to themselves as “Hard Roaders” are small red stars. These men and women, laborers and craftspersons, engineers and foremen who are Hard Roaders are all experienced in their trades and take great pride in recognizing high standards and being a part of a team that meets these standards. It is with great pride that these men and women wear small red stars on their sleeves, each representing five years of tenure with the company. Such pride and dedication reflects a company of people that are confident they will not complete just the current project for an owner, but over the course of their careers may join with these owners to deliver many projects. And, such pride reflects on Koss Construction Company’s commitment to these Hard Roaders to provide equipment, training, and policies to foster a safe work environment and to provide wages and benefits commensurate with their dedication to the company.
Whether seeking a career, technical assistance, or delivery of a product, know that Koss Construction Company has the expertise, experience, and commitment to deliver a valuable partnership.
