Meili-Blumberg was founded by 3 German emigrants in Wisconsin, USA in about 1907. The company was formed by three German engineers, brothers Otto and Fred Meili and Paul Blumberg. The Meili brothers were inventors and Blumberg was an expert metalworker. They set up the company in a small workshop in New Holstein, Wisconsin building agricultural implements.
The three partners invented and built a wide variety of machinery from road graders to paint remover (striper) machinery, and even "junior cars". In fact, the firm was one of the first Ford dealerships in the state of Wisconsin. The company built its first broom (a horse drawn model) in 1922.
The Meili brothers and Blumberg sold the company in 1954 to Robert B. Evans, former Chairman of the Board of American Motors. Twenty years later, M-B was sold again and purchased by A Terrence Cosgrove.
