Midwest Automation

Midwest Automation is a family-owned U.S. manufacturing company located in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

For companies who care where the products they buy are made, it will come as no surprise that buying American is not as easy as it used to be.  Many of the machines represented to be “American made” are in fact imported from foreign countries. For over 60 years, Midwest Automation has manufactured industrial machinery for the woodworking, composite panel, and metalworking industries using U.S. labor, and locally available components whenever possible.
