Our Story

our-storyGreat Plains Rebar LLC was established in August 2010 to provide rebar fabrication services to contractors throughout the Southwest. Although established in 2010, the roots of Great Plains Rebar trace back nearly 21 years to a small fabrication facility in Oklahoma City.

In 1994, Ken Mowery began fabricating reinforcing steel for Hearon Steel of OKC as a summer job in between the spring and fall college semesters. This lead to an eventual construction internship with Hearon Steel Company which started his training in estimating and detailing. In January of 2000, Ken returned to Hearon Steel of OKC as the plant manager after a short stint as a project manager with an Oklahoma based general contractor.

Travis Ketter then joined Hearon Steel as the Production Manager in 2004 after working with a local general contractor in Oklahoma City on a multi-story cast in place concrete project. Although an unlikely course for some, the rebar fabrication industry seemed a perfect fit for both.  Ken and Travis have been involved in the fabrication business ever since.
Ultimately Great Plains Rebar was established out of a response to the needs of our customers and as a result of our dreams to have a rebar fabrication facility of our own. Our desire is to provide the best quality and service that our customers have come to expect over the years.

As a response to the market and customer demand, Great Plains opened a new location in Tulsa  in October of 2014.  We are thrilled to be in the Tulsa area to help serve and meet the needs of more customers.  We will continue to provide prompt service and unsurpassed quality to you.  Thanks for your business and we look forward to serving you!
