At Midwest Sales and Service, we have a long history of serving our many customers since 1959. We’ve always been about family and providing service that has established MWSS as a leader in the Recreational Vehicle (RV) industry. Located in the hub of the RV industry of Northern Indiana, MWSS has continued to innovate and grow.
Appliance Distribution to RV Supplier
In 1959, MWSS was founded by Monte Wechter as an appliance distributorship selling to local retailers. Monte continued running the business until 1984 when he brought in his son Trell to assist with the business through sales and other duties while the business survived through the introduction of big retail stores, like Best Buy, Lowes, Walmart, and Sam’s Club.
In 1996, Monte passed away and Trell stepped up and took over the reins of the business. The customer base and focus of MWSS had changed over the years and MWSS had become actively involved in the Recreational Vehicle and Van Conversion industry. At that time, MWSS was supplying the RV industry with CRT TV’s, speakers, and even the Nintendo gaming system. In addition, the company established a partnership with Frigidaire and quickly became known for that relationship and its ability to supply the RV industry with the Frigidaire product line needed for the growing industry.
The company grew and started manufacturing its own line of products under the Pummel Drive label. Knowing the RV industry and its tight manufacturing deadlines, MWSS established itself as a reliable supplier with an eye for timely delivery, quality products, and great service.
Authorized Distributor of Top Brands For RV’s
Now, MWSS is firmly established as the premier supplier and Authorized Distributor of top brands to the RV industry including Frigidaire, GE, Haier, Sharp, Danby, Peerless Premier, and Pummel Drive.
MWSS has established strong manufacturing relationships within the RV industry over the years and is firmly aligned with the values established years ago. With 70,000 square feet of warehouse space, MWSS is able to provide what the RV manufacturing industry needs in a cost-effective, localized setting and is staffed with experts who have deeps roots in the community.
In the last 10 years, the Recreational Vehicle industry has boomed with little sign of slowing down as people of all ages have discovered the lifestyle of “RVing.” According to RV historians, the RV industry started in 1910 with few paved roads and even fewer gas stations. The conveniences were pretty sparse. Forget about indoor plumbing! But the freedom afforded by blazing your own trails appealed to many Americans.
The vehicles, equipment, and RV parks may have changed over the years but the allure and freedom provided by just hitting the road with the people you love has not.
