An Independent Metal Building Manufacturer

We invite you to learn about Chief Buildings and our parent company, Chief Industries. The quintessential American success story began when Virgil Eihusen launched a small construction company from a garage in Grand Island, Nebraska. From Virgil Eihusen to his son, Robert, and now to his grandson, DJ as Chairman and CEO, Chief has been guided by strong leaders who maintain a clear focus on what defines us – take care of the customer, strengthen the company through diversification, and respect our employees.

With more than six decades of remarkable growth and diversification, we have remained independent, privately held and family owned.

You will find Chief products and services used in a wide range of industries around the world including agriculture, commercial construction, structural steel, factory-built housing, ethanol production, transportation, community development, and more. We are proud to be a leader in each of those industries through our advances in technology, innovative design, and unparalleled customer service and personal attention.

We continuously communicate with key stakeholders about their needs and keep our customers at the forefront of everything we do, gathering their input and expertise to stay prepared for major industry changes. We understand it’s important to be forward-thinking and stay fresh and relevant.

As you learn about Chief Buildings, understand we’re a culture set in a family atmosphere. That’s who we are. The fact that we remain a family-owned and operated business is one of our competitive advantages and it means a lot to our company and our employees.

Business is a lot like life: it’s about surrounding yourself with the right group of people; and our people are our differentiators. We know our success is due to the people we work with every day: our suppliers, our customers, the communities we reside in, and our employees.

Our vision is to provide leadership to our stakeholders, to the industries we are involved in, and with the products and solutions we provide. Its what defines us. We are Trusted. Tested. True.

“The strength of Chief Industries comes from its ability to capitalize on the diversity of its family of brands. Working together keeps costs down, deadlines met, and workers employed. The future looks very bright for continued growth.”
