Josco Melius, Inc. was established in January of 1976 through the merger of Josco Sales Engineering and Ed Melius & Associates, bringing together decades of combined selling experience in Minnesota, Iowa, North Dakota, South Dakota and Western Wisconsin. Ray Joschko founded Josco Sales Engineering in 1961 and had an extensive background in engineering and selling of motors and gear motors. Ed Melius founded Ed Melius and Associates in 1959 – his background was in electronic component sales. Together, Ray and Ed established a diverse and successful sales organization —- Josco Melius.

The company was purchased in 1986, by two employees, Greg Larson and Mike Doody. In 2000 and Greg purchased the entire company and then in 2012 brought on an employee as his partner, James Duckless. In 2015 James became JMI’s sole owner to complete the transition.

Josco Melius continues to represent high-quality, custom engineering oriented manufacturers of electronic, electromechanical and mechanical products and services. The key to our success has been and will continue to be our customers, our Principals and our employees’ commitment to satisfy both!
