About Us

Thunder Creek Equipment diesel fuel and service trailers and DEF delivery solutions are made by LDJ Manufacturing, Inc, a family-owned business located in Pella, Iowa.

LDJ Manufacturing started in the mid-1990's when Loren and Jean Van Wyk opened a small fabrication business to supplement the family's farming income. The business quickly became known for uncompromised quality in steel fabrication and turned into a full-time endeavor.

As the President, Loren leads LDJ while using his God-given talent for developing new solutions. Most days you'll find him in the factory figuring out yet another way the Thunder Creek Equipment trailers can make your operation more productive. His wife, Jean, provides leadership and direction as the company's Vice President.

The business operation extends to the next generation of the Van Wyk family.  The eldest of Loren and Jean's five children, sons Luke and Chad, are the company's Sales Manager and Operations Leader, respectively.

"We are proud of the products we build," says Luke. "Here at LDJ we bring integrity, reliability, and ingenuity to the manufacture, sales, and support of our products."

You can find the full line-up of Thunder Creek fuel and service trailers with DEF delivery solutions at a dealer near you.
