Midwest Industries Inc. was founded in 1954 in Ida Grove, Iowa.

Founder Byron Godbersen's first invention, the Bolster Hoist, used hydraulics to tilt grain bins that had been traditionally emptied by hand. The wildly successful product sparked an entire line of Midwest farm equipment.

Under Byron's guidance, Midwest evolved over the years from farm equipment to marine products.

Today production is focused exclusively on ShoreLand'r® Trailers and ShoreStation® Lakefront Systems.

The company's Ida Grove headquarters includes a 340,000 square-foot, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility, distribution warehouse, convention center and private test lake. Midwest employs over 300 people and their products are distributed throughout the U.S. and Canada, and internationally to countries in Europe and Asia.

With almost 400,000 square feet under roof, ShoreStation is the largest boat lift manufacturing facility in the country. We have complete process and quality control because we fabricate our own parts from the highest quality raw materials. We continue to invest in the most modernized equipment such as CNC, robotics, lasers, and other fabrication equipment.
