More Than a Century of Commitment

What's in a name? Sometimes not much. Often everything. Dymax was born amidst the values and beliefs of the Balderson family. It's a name that has long stood for: Quality. Integrity. Service.

We’ve been working with iron and steel for more than 135 years. In the early days it was as simple as repairing wagons, shodding horses, and performing simple blacksmithing tasks in and around the small community of Wamego, Kansas. As times evolved so did machines and so did we. But one thing remained the same - our family tradition of providing the highest quality, best engineered solutions to meet our customers’ needs. We stand behind what we build and we figure out how to build it better. You will not be disappointed. The world has changed since Seth Balderson opened his blacksmith shop in 1875. What hasn’t changed is our family creed...

We treat every customer as if he were our only customer!
