Meyer Distributing History

Meyer Distributing was started in Haysville, Indiana, in the mid-1980s by Mike Braun, a man with an honest down-to-earth approach, strong work ethic and focus on customer service. The business Mike acquired, then called Meyer Body Company, initially manufactured truck bodies and later served as a truck parts and equipment distributor.

Mike realized the need for a strong aftermarket accessory distributor focusing on the Midwest. Meyer Distributing began serving retailers in Southern Indiana and quickly built a strong list of customers. As the coverage area expanded, the Haysville, Indiana, facility became inefficient. In 1998, Meyer moved into a true warehouse in Jasper, Indiana, to better meet customer needs. As Meyer continued to rapidly grow, additional facilities were added in many other areas nationwide to expand service capabilities.

Today, Meyer Distributing is a leader in specialty products marketing and distribution. Through numerous strategically positioned warehousing facilities, Meyer serves thousands of customers nationwide via Meyer Logistics direct ship.
