American Companies

Whether you know it or not, you’ve seen the work of American Companies, Inc.  Owner Gale Holsman and his team have provided street, parking lot, and event clean-up across Kansas City for 35+ years, including Chiefs and Royals games, the Country Club Plaza, and even Martin City’s St. Patrick’s parade.

In 2017, Holsman purchased 18 acres between Blue Ridge and 135th Street, just east of the railroad tracks crossing Holmes Road in Martin City. The property had been sitting vacant for almost 20 years. Holsman ihas invested over $700,000 to transform it into a storage and equipment rehab facility for the company.

When Holsman first started out, he swept parking lots for free and left a note on the door saying he had cleaned their lot. Over time, managers started calling him when they noticed their lots hadn’t been cleaned for a few weeks. Soon, the business exploded with over 20 sweeper trucks and clients all over Kansas City.

Today, the company includes five divisions specializing in parking lot sweeping, roll-off dumpsters, portable toilets, asphalt repair, and event stage rental. Read their family business story
