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 1998 we expanded again. We moved east and opened an office and warehouse facility in St. Louis to cover the eastern Missouri, southern Illinois and western Kentucky markets.

Our newly expanded 30,000 square foot facility is located in Olathe, KS.
