About Chief

At Chief Fabrication, we firmly believe that relationships are built by listening to our customers and delivering exactly what they need, when they need it. Regardless of the size and complexity of the order, we strive to satisfy our customers by making every part right on time and exactly to specifications.

This dedication to excellence has enabled Chief Fabrication to earn the trust of leading agricultural, construction, heavy crane manufacturers across the country. While we are proud to serve nationally renowned OEM’s, we promise the same level of service and workmanship to smaller companies, too.

Chief Industries has been a family-owned, service-oriented manufacturer since we opened our doors in 1954. From humble beginnings to a diverse, global corporation featuring 7 brands, we’re proud to help communities thrive and engineer relationships.

The quintessential American success story began when Virgil Eihusen launched a small construction company — Chief Industries — from a garage in Grand Island, Nebraska. From Virgil Eihusen to his son, Robert, and now to his grandson, DJ as Chairman and CEO, Chief has been guided by strong leaders who maintain a clear focus on its core values – take care of the customer, strengthen the company through diversification, and respect our employees.

At Chief, our leadership’s priority is supporting our 7 brands and 1,400 employees. We know that our strength comes from our people, collaboration, and open communication.

“The strength of Chief Industries comes from its ability to capitalize on the diversity of its family of brands,” says DJ Eihusen. “Working together keeps costs down, deadlines met, and workers employed. The future looks very bright for continued growth.”
