Today Illinois Engineered Products manufactures the same top quality steel folding gates built by Folding Guard since 1962.
In 2003, Dean Wynne, former president of Folding Guard, and son of Folding Guard founders Don and Virginia Wynne, established IEP in order to concentrate exclusively on the design and manufacture of the heavy-duty steel folding gates that Folding Guard had built since 1962. Folding Guard continues to manufacture a wide variety of safety and security products, but the gates it once made are manufactured today solely by Illinois Engineered Products.
Illinois Engineered Products is still the only manufacturer of heavy-duty galvanized steel gates in America. The company is located in a new 50,000 square foot facility specifically for gate manufacturing. The name has changed, but the great gates businesses have been demanding for more than 40 years are still the same.
