June 27, 2024, Overland Park, KS — MMC Corp announced today that its companies –  MW Builders, the MMC Contractors entities, and BCS – are uniting around the new brand name Cerris. MMC Corp will become Cerris. MW Builders will rebrand to become Cerris Builders.

The organization has a strong legacy and a relationship-focused way of doing business, and it will continue to build the extraordinary by providing connected solutions across its companies to its clients.

“While our name is changing, the way we do business remains grounded in nearly a century of experience, long-term relationships, deeply held values, and dedication to our craft,” says Jason Evelyn, CEO of Cerris. “From the initial idea to the first patient, student, resident, or gigabyte, we are prepared to meet the building needs of tomorrow.”
