Since its inception, Midstate Companies has consistently evolved and expanded to become the industry leader in cutting edge pavement recycling. Starting out with a single dump truck, owner Tom Johnson formed Midstate Trucking in 1984. Tom’s relentless work ethic and vision allowed him to expand the business into a fleet of various belly, end and dump trucks over the next few years. An insatiable desire for growth resulted in Tom branching out into bituminous reclamation and the formation of Midstate Reclamation in the fall of 1991 with the purchase of Minnesota’s first asphalt reclaimer. With Tom acting as the operator, mechanic and lowboy driver, the company’s presence was quickly felt industry wide. Tom’s passion and enthusiasm grew as he entered the market and the stage was set for bituminous milling services being added to Midstate’s business arsenal. Cold in-place recycling and soil stabilization services soon followed.
Never one to rest on his laurels, Tom quickly outgrew his building in Savage and was able to secure a location in Lakeville Minnesota for his corporate office and shop in the spring of 1998. Although local projects proved quite plentiful, Tom’s omnidirectional vision led him toward the great west. Project opportunity combined with Tom’s heightened determination, served as the catalyst which allowed Midstate to realize its full western potential. Jobs were acquired and completed in Montana, Wyoming, Iowa and the Dakotas to name a few. In order to take full advantage of the projects in this region of the country, Tom established a regional office in Spearfish South Dakota in late 2001.
Today, Midstate Companies operates in 13 states offering a variety of trucking and reclamation services. Mid-State is extremely proud of its owner, team and market share. Midstate is constantly evolving and continues to set the standard in the industry!
