True Success
"I hope my achievements in life shall be these:
That I will have fought for what was right and fair.
That I will have risked for that which mattered.
That I will have given help to those who were in need."

KSI Headquarters



And here it begins:

At first glance this small building may not seem a sufficient place to begin turning one's dream into reality, but look again... do you see it? Look closely at the foundation on which this building sits. No, not the floor, but the foundation laid many years ago.
Calvin grew up on a farm where he learned the principles that would guide him in later years, to help make his dream a reality. He learned to appreciate the value of hard work by milking cows and later picking up golf balls to make money to pay for his school lunches and supplies. After leaving the farm he began his career in the metal industry working as a laborer, constantly learning and gaining insight into virtually every aspect of metal manufacturing.

That is the foundation of KSI


That is why this dream, that may have seemed improbable or even impossible to some, was in fact ... inevitable.


A true dreamer never limits himself and Calvin was a true dreamer.

With the company off to a powerful start, it became apparent that room was needed for growth. And so dream became reality with the construction of the current home of Koenig Stainless Inc. What a reality it is! From the humble start in the building behind his home to a 15,000 square foot facility located in Stennis Air Park Industrial Complex in Kiln, MS. From having to purchase parts cut to size and with some holes cut in then to being able to accomplish all phases of metal fabrication, including shearing, punching, forming, welding, and polishing. Like a seed planted on fertile ground, that dream has blossomed and continues to produce fruit in abundance.
