After 12 years of selling construction products for a St. Louis-based company, Megan and Todd Marchi witnessed firsthand their belief that Southeast Missouri needed a construction products and equipment distributor. So, in 2010, the couple filled that niche and opened Marco Construction Products in a small 25×25 metal building in Chaffee. They later expanded their space and moved the company to their current location along South Kingshighway in Cape.
Along with professional-grade construction equipment, Marco Construction Products also offers the area’s only Hilti tools, decorative concrete and insulated concrete forms. The average age of their staff is 30, and all employees are Southeast Missouri State University graduates.
In case you’re wondering about the company name, “Marco”, it stands for “Marchi Company”. If you look closely at their logo, you might spot the hidden ‘T’ in the ‘M’ shape. This represents “Megan and Todd”, the names of the company’s co-founders/owners.
