Top Workplace 2018


This fall, McAninch Corporation and our employees received a gratifying award by being named a Top Workplace for the first time in the company’s history.

“Ranking as the No. 4 mid-sized company in the state of Iowa is a reflection of the work ethic and commitment our employees bring to their job responsibilities every single day,” says Doug McAninch, president/CEO.

Before homes and businesses are built, a considerable amount of work must happen below the ground, and it goes far beyond digging foundations. With 30 years of experience – 20 of which have been with McAninch – George Storm has significant expertise in this area.


We recently caught up with Danny Snyder, an equipment operator for McAninch, while he was working on a runway project at the Des Moines International Airport. This is his fourth year working for McAninch, and he’s happy to be sitting in the seat of a bulldozer.


Tyler Dudding’s enthusiasm for his work is contagious. In fact, when asked to explain what he does at McAninch, he had a fitting response.

“I help to make dreams come true,” he says. “Whether we’re working on a housing project or an industrial area, we’re on the ground level of seeing someone’s vision start to become a reality.”

As a scraper operator, he says simply put, he puts the dirt where it needs to be.
