With a scratch of a pen Dakota Fabricating began business in 1989 located in Glendale, Arizona. Founded by Harold and Danette Holmberg, with their children Tim, Dalynda, and Rich.
Dakota Fabricating was a small family-owned business with a big passion for heavy equipment manufacturing. Danette describes their start as "humble beginnings of honest, hardworking, and God loving Christians whose hand shakes were their word".
Dakota Fabricating boomed into a trailblazing company for its time and region. Growing from 5 to 75 employees, ranking #1 in sales with companies Lippmann, Telsmith, and KPI-JCI, establishing a successful service department, and prospecting for a new location...
Yearning to answer his customers' calls for help, Tim Holmberg Vice-President of Dakota Fabricating, dreamt of expanding into the northern territory. On a quest to get back to their roots and re-spark a vision, Tim and Martha Holmberg then founded Dakota Equipment Manufacturing Inc. ("DEMI") in 2012 located in Cresbard, South Dakota.
