Jet Company's roots trace back to a farmer's garage where he started building fencing equipment in his free time. In the summer of '56, a devastating hail storm forced that farmer into designing the first Jet Wire Roller. In '58 a post driver was designed and both products were offered through the Sears & Roebuck Catalog. Montgomery Ward, Wheelers & Tractor Supply soon followed. A larger building was constructed on the farm to accommodate production of a wagon box. Due to increased demand, land was purchased and Jet Company moved to Humboldt Iowa, where it's production still occurs today.
