|About||Mid-States manufactures non-powered material handling products. Best of all it's all Made in the USA at a plant in Milton, Iowa!|
Since 1966, Mid-States Manufacturing & Engineering has grown into a major manufacturer in the material handling industry. The first “home” to Mid-States was a modest barn in the small southeastern Iowa community of Milton. Much has changed from the original agricultural based plans conceived by Jack Dixon and Dale Snyder, founders of the company.
After years of manufacturing wooden stock racks, Mid-States was asked to build 1000 stainless steel meat tanks for the Armour-Dial Company based in Fort Madison, Iowa. With the successful completion and shipment of these tanks on the last train to run through Milton, Mid-States initiated an aggressive expansion of its product line.
Quickly outgrowing the original barn, the production facility was moved to its current site in 1978 and a new 8,000 square foot building was erected.
A new 70,000 square foot manufacturing facility now employs over 60 people. Mid-State’s in-house engineering and sales departments offer a broad knowledge of the material handling industry to our customers world-wide.
A standard product line along with the capabilities to custom design and engineer products to meet your specific needs are two of the many reasons customers have been coming to us for over 49 years. Quality, delivery and price make us the logical choice for all material handling needs.
