Midwest Products was founded in 1952 by Frank Garcher and Wally Simmers. What started out as a manufacturer and distributor of model airplanes is now a leading worldwide supplier of high quality raw materials, accessories and kits to distributors and retailers. Midwest Products are used for leisure, educational purposes and professional pursuits.
Midwest Products supplies retail outlets and businesses around the world with an array of woods including balsa, basswood, hardwood and plywood. Our valued and trusted plastic, cork, carbon fiber, building materials, and accessory product lines are what bring our customers coming back.
From model airplanes and boats to architectural projects, we are proud that our products have, and continue to enrich the lives of hundreds of thousands of people around the world, every day. Midwest Products customers not only value our high quality products but they also appreciate that we uphold the values of the brand.
In efforts to expand our market and grow Midwest Products as a brand, Midwest Products merged with Saunders Manufacturing to form Saunders Midwest, LLC.
Saunders Midwest is a diversified consumer and business products company with a portfolio of brands that have served customers for over 70 years. Markets served include art material, crafts, hobby, hardware, toys, education, office supplies and more.
Saunders Midwest products are sold in name-brand retail outlets and business distributors in both domestic and international markets.
