About Us

In 1952, friends combined their passions for model airplanes to develop a thriving business dedicated to providing high quality products to enthusiasts around the world.

More than 50 years later, Midwest's product line and distribution have grown and changed, but its passion for quality has remained steadfast.  Today, Midwest Products is a leading worldwide supplier of quality raw materials, accessories, and kits to distributors and retailers.  

People use our products for leisure, educational purposes, and professional pursuits.  From model airplanes and boats to architectural projects, we are proud that our products enrich the lives of hundreds of thousands of people around the world everyday.
