We are a family owned agriculture and fabrication business in Central Iowa.
Ihle Fabrications is an agricultural business owned by brothers, Mike and Brian Ihle and is located on a farm in Central Iowa. Their father started the farming operation in the 60’s with row crop and hogs. In the 80’s, the family sold out of the livestock business and started Ihle Farms Trucking, Inc. where they hauled grain for local farmers and elevators. Since then, they still have the trucking business and have grown the farming business.
The family first began making auger liners in 2002 as a solution to a problem they faced with their own combines. At that time, the only option was to replace the grain tank on the combine which would result in spending thousands of dollars. With this product, dealers and farmers are able to extend the life of their machines. This is especially valuable in a farm economy where farmers need to keep their machines longer by repairing them instead of upgrading.
Since then, Ihle Fabrications has mass produced these liners and started making other products such as bubble-up liners, clean and return grain liners, and auger floor liners. Not only do these models fit Case IH, but they are also made for New Holland, Catepillar, and John Deere. They sell these products to both farmers and dealers across the Midwest. Ihle Fabrications has become well-known to their customers and has had a lot of repeat business.
