A tradition of service since 1940graphic_madeinusa




graphic_history2Louis Industries was started in 1940 as Louis Blacksmith Shop. Alfred Louis began by shoeing horses, fixing agricultural equipment, and doing general repair and maintenance for the local residents.

In 1973, Leo and Cecil Louis purchased the assets of the business from their father and changed the name to Louis Industries, Inc.  They began to modify the scope of the company from a general blacksmith shop to an original equipment manufacturer that produced a line of wood burning stoves, hog and cattle equipment along with general manufacturing activities.  In the early 1990s the focus of the company underwent a further change and began to deemphasize OEM work and  integrate steel processing.  In 1995, laser cutting was added to the list of capabilities and in 1999 the company moved into its current modern facility. 


Today Louis Industries is one of the most modern steel processing facilities in the Upper Midwest.  We currently have the latest technology available in laser, punching, rolling, welding and quality control equipment.  In addition, we are a major regional supplier of mild steel, stainless steel and aluminum.  We specialize in supporting lean, rapid response manufacturing.
