Residential and Light Commercial Products

The Company

As with many successful companies, the journey on the road to excellence started years, even decades before. Midwest Ducts’ beginnings trace back to WWII and Herbert R. Gibson, who started his sheet metal career repairing the wings of B29 bombers from a small sheet metal shop in the South Pacific.

In the 1950’s, his education in the sheet metal manufacturing business came from Standard Metal Products, the industry leader at that time.  He refined his knowledge and expertise in the industry with an 11 year affiliation with Champion Furnace Pipe Company.

Herbert R. Gibson founded Midwest Ducts in 1986, in Prairie Farm, WI.  This community has had a long tradition of sheet metal production, with several manufacturers over the years choosing to produce product in Prairie Farm due to the high quality and strong work ethic of the workforce.  Our entire family contributed to the growth of the business over the years, and the transition to the second generation of Gibson leadership is now complete.

Today  Midwest Ducts has over 4 million dollars invested in manufacturing equipment, and ships in its own trailers from the 98,000 sq ft. Prairie Farm facility.  Midwest Ducts has grown to serve distributors in 14 states. Our commitment to automation and precision manufacturing methods are producing the finest quality products in the industry, while keeping the cost competitive to our customers.

Midwest Ducts is proud of its beginnings and confident about its future.  The building blocks have a solid foundation.  We continue to experience increasing market share through partnership with some of the finest distributors that our great nation has to offer.

Our quality sets us apart – Our commitment to your satisfaction makes us unique. Thank you for your business!
