About Us


Koehn Building Systems, LLC (KBS) is a General Contracting company that specializes in commercial and agricultural building projects. We are based out of the small town of Rich Hill, Missouri which is located between Kansas City and Joplin. We rarely travel farther than a two hour radius because we believe our best value is working local. KBS is committed to offering affordable, value based solutions for your construction project.


Two brothers, Steve and Jerel Koehn, formed a partnership in 1997. The early years were spent as roofing contractors. As experience grew and opportunity came along, they began constructing residential and commercial wood framed buildings. In 2008 a commitment was made to turn our focus to metal structures. Again, this change was an opportunity to provide customers a structure that would last generations. As a value based company, our commitment to this system of building is unwavering.


Today, the original partners continue to be involved. Sales and project management are handled by Steve. Jerel is manager of project operations. They and their team of dedicated individuals have a vast amount of knowledge and experience. This translates into efficient design so fewer changes need to be made from start to completion. Clients can rest assured that all will be done to complete their project on time and within budget.
