About Us

Custom Made Products was started in 1968 by Gary Naeve, when he developed and invented a front mount fuel tank and obtained a patent. This was a needed solution to a problem that he was facing in his own farming operation. The first eight fuel tanks were produced in Gary's shop at his farm. After Gary hired a local company to produce the tanks, he eventually decided to sell that part of the business to Simerson Iron Works in Sioux Rapids, Iowa.

A few more years passed before Gary's entrepreneurial spirit was kindled again. He had been helping a friend with some dirt work in the process of building a hog confinement. It was then that Gary became aware of dirt moving equipment and he quickly became a dealer for a number of dirt scraper manufacturers.

In the fall of 2004, Gary added land rollers to his line. He is now the "largest dealer" in the United States.

Around the same time the dirt scraper business evolved, the CDL program began. After obtaining his own CDL endorsement, he was approached by numerous individuals for permission to borrow his truck for use in obtaining their own CDL endorsement. The CDL program at Custom Made Products was designed to provide the training and equipment to allow individuals to obtain their CDL endorsement with minimum fuss. Gary's CDL program has helped over '6,500 Satisfied Customers’ over 19 years. After many years of training and helping individuals get their CDL License, he has stepped down from doing the training himself and has handed that position to two capable individuals. Instead of providing training four days a week, Custom Made Products is able to provide training five days a week in both Humboldt and in Fort Dodge.

In 1996, Gary's son Rod began a trucking operation underneath the Custom Made Products name. From a startup of only one truck, Rod has grown to become an outfit of 20 trucks with a wide range of flatbeds, vans, feed and grain trailers, and heavy equipment hauling for a diverse range of hauling ability.
