Midwest founder Byron L. Godbersen grew up as a hardworking Iowa farm boy with a passion for inventing. In 1954 Byron was issued his first patent for the Bolster Hoist, an under-body wagon hoist used to tilt a grain box and empty its contents. The Bolster Hoist was a hit with farmers across America and Midwest Industries was born.
