Our History

Mack McClain and Associates was formed in 1969 by Mack McClain and John Fanning in Des Moines, Iowa. As manufacturers representatives for the plumbing and mechanical industries we began making and impact in the Iowa and Nebraska markets. In 1971 Mike McClain joined Mack and the company quickly became a leading agency in these markets.

In 1984 Mike McClain expanded their successes to the Kansas City area by opening a branch office and warehouse facility to cover Kansas and Western Missouri.

In 1998 we expanded east and opened an office in St. Louis to cover the eastern Missouri, Southern Illinois and Western Kentucky markets.

In 2017 Mack McClain merged forces with the former agency William D. Anderson Inc (WDA), acquiring the lines they represent and bringing on their employees.

Between our newly expanded 30,000 square foot facility located in Olathe, KS and our newly opened 5,000 square foot warehouse in Omaha, as well as our expanded sales and office staff we are equipped to handle all of our customers needs.
