The MSI Story


Early MSI mold

Ed and CharLes Klouda founded MSI Mold Builders in 1971 in Swisher, Iowa.  With an entrepreneurial spirit, Ed and CharLes began a journey to establish MSI as a leader in the mold building and servicing industry by building a company they could be proud of. Roger Klouda joined his parents in 1978 and continued to build and develop the business.  In 1990, MSI moved its operations to a 35,000 square foot corporate headquarters in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Under Roger’s leadership, MSI has expanded its operations with the 2001 opening of a 20,000 square foot facility in Greenville, South Carolina, and continues to grow.
