Macon began conversations with Michlig Grain in July 2018. Assessing their storage capacities, predicted harvest, and commodity prices, it was evident they needed permanent storage for another couple million bushels. With a pre-harvest construction period and total costs coming in at 1/3rd of steel bins, we recommended adding a 180'x 372' hoop building immediately. By mid-October the structure was complete, and 15 days later it was completely full.

“Our project was around one third the cost of putting up steel bins after factoring in the legging systems and conveyors. Macon provided exceptional, on-time delivery. Everyone delivered on what they said they would, making this one of the best projects I’ve been involved in in my thirty-plus years of business.”
—Donald King, Owner

“It’s amazing how fast it went; we hit our timeline six days ahead. From the time they showed up to the time we took grain there was never any hiccups on the project. It went smoother than any projects we have done. We put 2 million bushels into our hoop in a matter of 3-4 weeks without ever having to stop because of a break down or adjustment. It’s outstanding.”
— Ryan Kerber, Operations and Construction Manager
