MWI Components (Metal Works, Inc.) is a leading manufacturer and supplier of products for the post frame industry. We pride ourselves on providing quality products coupled with the shortest lead-time and best customer service in the industry to our customer base in all 50 states and Canada. We also deliver via our own truck routes to several states (see MWI Freight Zones).

Originally founded in 1985, Bruce Nystrom started the company as Metal Works, Inc. Our products are found in the construction of metal-clad post frame buildings, equestrian complexes, garages, storage buildings and light commercial office buildings. Our specific manufactured products include foil insulation, ridge vents, cupolas, soffit & trim, horse stalls, Arcadian sliding doors, Dutch doors, round track, square track and all applicable hardware. In addition to our manufactured products, MWI is a distributor of additional products related to the industry such as polycarbonate skylights, PVC, uni-vent and uni-seal.

In 1998, Metal Works, Inc. added a marketing/distribution division to the company-known as MWI Components. In 2013, the separate companies of Metal Works, Inc. and MWI Components merged to form what we now recognize as MWI Components. Later that year, Bruce Nystrom sold the company to Ben Nystrom and Philip Ramstack.





MWI Components is focused on customer overall satisfaction from order entry to delivery and everywhere in between. Excellence in this area is difficult to achieve since it requires consistency and detailed focus, but it is one of the surest ways to differentiate our self from the competitor.


MWI Components embraces lean principles and process management to ensure we can produce cost competitive products made right here in the United States of America. We are focused on continuous improvement to ensure we provide the most reasonably priced product to our customers.


MWI Components understands that servicing our customers with the shortest possible lead-time is critical to our overall success. Therefore, we control our own manufacturing with a published seven-day lead-time (14 day lead-time on powder coated products) and ship a majority of our product on weekly truck routes hauled by a vetted Iowa trucking company.


The post frame industry demands quality products that meets or exceeds the demands of the products intended use. As a result, we believe every employee should have adequate training, tools, and the empowerment to stop production in cases of questionable quality. All quality issues are brought timely to the attention of the Staff and all applicable operators through the Quality Alert process.
