Mid-Land History

Mid-Land Crane and Erector Company was founded in 1999 by Kenny Neal as a Crane and Millwright service provider. Mid-Land’s first project was a millwright demolition job in Bentonville, Arkansas. Word of mouth quickly spread in regard to the quality of service Mid-Land was capable of providing. Mid-Land’s second project took them to Tulsa, Oklahoma to erect a structural steel two story structure. The successful and on time completion of the Tulsa project established a strong and continuing relationship with many area general contractors.

As the spring of 2000 approached, Kenny realized expansion was necessary to keep up with the demand. By the summer of 2000 Mid-Land Crane and Erector grew to a team of 30 plus men. With the success of a rapidly growing steel erector business, came the typical growing pains. A decision to restructure in 2001 led to the birth of the current Mid-Land.

Mid-Land came back strong with record years in 2008 and 2009. In 2010, the recession reached the Midwest and business slowed dramatically forcing Mid-Land to adjust its strategic plan. The results of dedicated and committed team members enabled Mid-Land to weather the storm and continue on for more record breaking years from 2011 through 2014.

The company was restructured in 2014 to form Mid-Land Enterprises to represent the family of businesses. Mid-Land adopted an open book management style to allow managers and team members a better way to manage the business. This approach allows Mid-Land to “WOW” the customer with “NO SURPRISES” and to “CELEBRATE THE VICTORIES.” This is done through goal setting, strong communication, trust and accountability and team member recognition. By “FOCUSING ON THE CUSTOMER”, we earn customer loyalty and engagement and continually exceed customer satisfaction.
