An innovative product with humble beginnings..

Midwest Fabrication started life as a farm based general fabrication business by a young man with big dreams of buying the neighboring farm to his family’s grain farm. After purchasing his first combine harvester with no front, he believed he could build a front for himself keeping in mind the conditions he would be harvesting in. It was through sheer determination and the like-minded collaboration between father and son that the very first front came to life and to this day Craig and Martin have been developing an incredibly innovative, globally recognised product and continue to grow the family-owned and operated business.

Midwest has been leading the way in innovative design in harvesting operations, accomplishing many feats and widths!
