Midland Metal is a family owned business that was started in 1980. Initially, Midland supplied only brass fittings, but they have added several product lines throughout the years to become a “one-stop-shop” for all their customers’ fitting and valve needs. The company is centrally located in Kansas City, Missouri with another full stocking warehouse in California.
We asked Brett Powell, Midland Metal’s National Sales Manager, a couple of questions:
What do you like best or enjoy most about this industry?
I enjoy the people the most. I’ve come to know quite a few people in the industry in my 20 years and have built many friendships. There is a lot of respect for each other in our business because what we do is not glamorous or flashy, but we sure enjoy it. Otherwise, there would be a lot of turnover in our industry.
What is your favorite thing about being an IDCO supplier?
My favorite thing about being an IDCO supplier is being part of a family. As cheesy as it sounds, it is true. IDCO members look out for one another. We spend three whole days every year in meetings, roundtables, and at the hotel bar with each other, and we build long-lasting relationships.
