Approaching the Mid-Century Mark in a Power Position

Midwest Drywall Co., Inc.

Midwest Drywall Co. Inc., (MWD) is thriving as it prepares to mark its fiftieth anniversary next year. COVID-19 threw the Wichita, Kansas-based wall and ceiling drywall subcontractor something of a curveball, but it has endured. Since it was last profiled in the November 2019 issue of Construction in Focus magazine, the employee-owned firm has opened an office in an additional geographic location and continues to take on large projects as it approaches a corporate milestone.
