About Midwest Industries, Inc.

Iowa has a place to get hitched without getting married. It's called Midwest Industries, and it is celebrating its golden anniversary. The family-held corporation manufactures the Freedom Hitch (a hands-free, positive latch-and-lock trailer hitch) which allows users to change implements from the seat of a tractor. The Freedom Hitch system comes in two sizes: Category I, for tractors up to 45 horsepower, and Category II, for tractors up to 100 horsepower. The company also makes a line of boat trailers under the ShoreLand'r brand. Midwest's ShoreStation Boat Hoists unit makes hoists and dock accessories for on-the-water storage of boats and personal watercraft (PWC), as well as complete lake dock systems.
