A Proud Tradition of Service
Although in founding Kissick Construction, Jim and Pete were entrepreneurs in their own right, their proud tradition of service is rooted in their extended company and family history. This history goes back to 1896 when James H. Kissick started Kissick Transfer Company, an equipment hauling business in Kansas City. His two sons, Lloyd Kissick, Sr. and Robert formed the Imperial Transfer & Storage Company in 1915, having both grown up working in their father’s firm. Primarily a hauling company, the young company also offered warehouse storage, intra-urban bus service and road oiling. This business was located in a building at 19th and Central.
