In 2007, Blaine A. Kaylor, President of Midwest Industrial Metal Fabrication, Inc. founded Lime City Equipment (LCE) to service the fast growing agricultural sector of Midwest`s business. After extensive research & development in grain trailer design, structural integrity, corrosion resistance, viable options, and the economies of scale Lime City Equipment began building grain trailers. LCE is housed in a state-of-the-art 40,000 square feet facility built in 2008. It includes two (2) production lines with an vaerage capacity of fabricating and finishing two trailers per day.
LCE grew quickly and soon added special application trailers, drag scrappers, rippers, shrouds, and other custom agricultural equipment. In 2011 we ntroduced a complete line of 5' & 6' diameter Slurry Spreader-Tanker Trailers.
We offer single, tandem, and tri-axles (new or reconditioned) on trailers in lengths from 22 feet through 42 feet.
Look us over and then call and talk with us about such standard features as the:
1/4' structural steel with 12 gauge sheet steel on the sides, hoppers, and slides.
primer, asphalt undercoating, and special two-part mastic based polymer top coat
Shur-Lok(TM) tarp system with double ridge straps for the grain trailers
16 color selection and 7 tarp colors
roller bearings on hopper doors
In addition to these standard characteristics, we offer halogen hopper lights for night-time unloading, graphite internal coating for friction reduction, and sight glasses. Talk to us about your user specific requirements.

Lime City Equipment (LCE) is located in the heart of the Midwest.....Huntington, Indiana. We talk with and understand the farmers and their issues, i.e. farming, grain markets, financing, weather, and the struggles that each individual farm face for every harvest.
Using skilled welders, state-of-the-art fabrication & construction techniques, U.S. steel, and over one hundred years of combined experience and acquired knowledge, LCE is dedicated to producing and providing the U.S and Canadian farmer with the highest quality grain trailers available.
We are a subsidiary of Midwest Industrial Metal Fabrication, Inc, and receive precision panels, structural steel, and components from their lasers, turrets, presses, brakes, and saws. It simply fits together like a puzzle and allows our welders to lay down full seam welds to complete the construction process.
