Nevada Golden K Kiwanis
The Nevada Golden Kiwanis met Tuesday, July 16, at Mid-States Millwright Builders, Inc. After being treated to coffee, juice and rolls, we were hosted by Randy Vier, Mark Lomp and John Stephens, the in-house safety director. Randy presented a background on the company with visual aids. The company was founded in 2001 and later expanded with another division called Mid-States Material Handling and Fabrication in 2011. The company sells and builds Brock grain bins. Mid States is the #1 dealer for Brock in Iowa and the #3 dealer in sales for Brock in the world. Other equipment manufactured here are catwalks, bucket elevators, hoppers and chain drag conveyors. The company is up-to-date technology-wise, with the latest in manufacturing equipment. The latest building addition is a 200 x 175 foot, 34,000 square foot building. Mid-States has six cranes, 50 to 245 tons with a 300 foot reach for construction of its equipment. The company thrives on its safety record. We were given a tour of some of the facilities and modern technology by Mark Lomp. Fourteen members and one guest attended this excellent tour. Nevada is fortunate to have such a successful company in our community. Thanks to Mid-States for a very interesting and educational meeting.
