More About Us


Since 1975, Monarch has been efficiently burning clinker in two four-stage suspension preheater kilns. These kilns preheat the raw materials prior to entering the kiln and thereby utilize available heat that otherwise would be vented into the atmosphere. The roller mill takes the utilization of the available heat a step further and efficiently uses all but about 200° of the available heat.

During the 1990's, Monarch focused on process automation. The roller mill, preheater kilns, and all finish mills have been converted to computer-controlled systems through the utilization of state-of-the-art process control technology. Monarch also installed an automated system for disposal of used tires in its two preheater kilns. This accomplishes two objectives; it recovers fuel from an otherwise wasted material and provides a Kansas Department of Health and Environment approved disposal site for tires. The pyroprocessing system is currently being updated to include the latest process technology.


Monarch has confidence in the future of the cement industry and the people it serves. Today Monarch serves all or parts of Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, and Oklahoma from the Humboldt plant as well as Monarch's terminals in Des Moines, Iowa, and Dodge City, Kansas. Monarch employees share a commitment to quality essential in meeting the varied applications of their customers. The commitment to share excellence includes support of statewide activities and organizations aimed at improving the quality of life throughout the Midwest. H.F.G. Wulf has been gone since 1934, but the traditions he established live on.
