Our Story

The MW Builders story began in 1932, when a craftsman named Claude Sanders founded a residential plumbing business in Kansas City, Missouri. In the decades that followed, Claude, his son, and three grandsons continued to grow the business into what is now a nationwide, multimillion-dollar construction services company.

Like Claude himself, the Sanders family believed in the power of entrepreneurial spirit. The family’s third generation seized the opportunity to move into general contracting and expanded that aspect of the business nationally.

Our Values

Since inception, MW Builders has been governed by core values. As a company — and as individuals — we value teamwork with mutual respect, entrepreneurial spirit, quality craftsmanship, and integrity above all else.



Integrity is our cornerstone. By conducting our business according to the highest standards of integrity and ethical behavior, we always tell the truth, keep our promises, and hold ourselves accountable for every decision we make.

We embrace teamwork while respecting the individual. Our foundation of teamwork and collaboration allows us to build sustainable relationships with our fellow employees, our clients, our business partners, and our communities.

We believe in the power of our entrepreneurial spirit. Our success comes from having the imagination to visualize what is possible, the courage to try new things, and the resourcefulness to always find a way to get it done.

We take pride in our craft, ensuring quality, safety, and value on every job. It’s critical that every aspect of our work reflects the highest level of quality, safety, craftsmanship, and professionalism.

The MW Builders Brand

The “MW” in our name stands for our longstanding history founded on our Midwestern values. “Builders” reflects our essence as craftsmen, people who construct high-quality buildings, cultivate strong partnerships, attract the best talent, and design innovative solutions.

At MW Builders, we’ve always taken great pride in being innovative and leading our partners through changing times. Now, more than ever, we are structured to help our clients navigate the changing marketplace that requires a new way of doing business.
