Prairie Trailer began in 1961 when Jim Lesmeister opened Jim's Machine Shop on west Highway 28.
In 1981, the current owner, Ken Lesmeister along with his brother, purchased the business from their dad. The business was renamed Brothers Fleet. Ken took over ownership in 1995 and the business was renamed Prairie Trailer.
The construction of a new building in 2006 was the realization of a major expansion for the company which now employs over 14 in sales, parts, service, trailer rebuilding, grit blasting and painting.
