About Idaho Steel
Idaho Steel began in 1918 as a small fabrication shop in downtown Idaho Falls, Idaho and has been transformed over its 100-year history into a leader in the potato processing equipment industry. Now, an internationally recognized expert in stainless steel fabrication and machining of food processing equipment, Idaho Steel serves customers around the world with its state-of-the-art machines including the largest drum dryers ever created. We credit our success to the talented people on our diverse team of professionals including engineers, machinists, and welders.
Family is an important word to our company. In 1991, Lynn Bradshaw bought Idaho Steel and in 2008, sold it to his sons Delynn and Alan, and his son-in-law, Davis Christensen. The family atmosphere of our culture is due not only to ownership ties that have spanned generations, but because we consider our employees and customers family, too.
Through dedication to the highest quality, safety, and solid craftsmanship, we create an environment that inspires loyalty and innovation. With gratitude for our past, we will always serve our industry with pride and integrity. By investing in our people, with their families in mind, we continually improve our products and processes to exceed the expectations of every customer.

A Century of Excellence
100 years of innovation at Idaho Steel is worth celebrating!
We invited our customers, employees, and partners to celebrate this significant milestone during a joyous weekend of fun in June 2018. The festivities began on the first day with an official tour of Idaho Steel and an all-day extravaganza of the best food southeast Idaho has to offer including a “street fair” style lunch provided by local vendors and a dinner from local favorite, Jaker’s. The evening concluded with a concert from musical sensation Alex Boyé! The final day of celebration ended by entertaining our customers and partners with different regional adventures and a formal party hosted by the Hilton Garden Inn.
We are extremely grateful that so many of the Idaho Steel family joined us for this momentous occasion!
