This post is part of an ongoing series of manufacturer profiles. The blogs will cover some of the many manufacturers in the state of Nebraska. Check back later for more posts in the series. To see previous posts in the series, click here.
It’s been about a month since we featured our last outstanding Nebraska manufacturer (see the post on Cyclonaire here), so we thought it was about time to highlight another manufacturer doing great work and making a difference with the products they create.
If you drive past the Industrial Maid plant just north of Cortland, NE, you’ll see approximately six acres with two buildings totaling 22,500 square feet. What’s more important, however, is that the plant is located near I-80 and I-29 and I-70, the key interstates in the Central Midwest. Today, the company works with a network of dealers throughout the United States, Canada, and Mexico. Their stated goals are as follows:
Our strength will come from hard work, a determination to be the best at what we do, applying sound management principles and hiring quality employees. We will pay close attention to the marketplace and do the things that make the most sense for our distribution channel and end-users. The company will provide a friendly, fun and relaxed work environment, while keeping a clear focus on our business goals. We will always take into consideration what effect our business practices have on our air, land and water resources.
You may have heard of Industrial Maid recently, because the company joined Precise Fabrication to showcase their product on National Manufacturing Day in Beatrice (check out this article from the for more information). What’s truly fascinating about the manufacturer, and why they were an important addition for Manufacturing Day, is that they work with a wide variety of industries in the name of sustainability and the environmental good.
They manufacture and assemble commercial air cleaners, industrial air cleaners, robotic hood systems, environmental work booths, down draft benches, and oil mist collection units. What do all of these products do? Well, they collect smoke, fumes, mist, or other “fugitive dusts” (a phrase we love, it makes it sound like dust is on the run!) from commercial and industrial environments.
Thus, the moral of the story is that this company simply wants to make environments safer. They’re also committed to sustainability, using recycled plastic to build their cabinet housings. As they say, a typical cabinet saves over 350 milk jugs from going to local landfills, thus making Cortland and Beatrice happier more sustainable places.
If you’re interested in this type of manufacturing work, it’s important to remember that this company works with a wide variety of tremendously exciting industries. Aviation, farm shops, body shops, finishing shops, machine shops, and more can all take advantage of their excellent air filtration systems, while feeling comfortable that they’re working with a manufacturer who has an environmental conscience.
Other manufacturers rave about Industrial Maid’s products: “I order the filters for the Industrial Maid T-3000 air cleaner we have. WE have a welding shop, we started with 1 welder about 1.5 years ago, and now have three welders going. This air system is great: We order filters by the case, and they do a great job at keeping the air clean from the smoke of the welders. I highly recommend it for any shop,” says Cathy Poirer, from Buffalo, Minnesota.
