Like many American Dream stories, ours began in a garage.
But it wasn't long before a larger building was needed. In fact, over the years, we have had nine expansions of our facilities, always thinking that they were going to be big enough! Today, our shop is 240,000 sqft and we employ 350 of our friends and neighbors.
From the beginning there has always been an interest in using technology to make the components of our trailer hitches faster and more consistently. But what do you do if you can't afford to buy the latest laser or robot? You buy them used, of course, and rebuild them when they arrive. In the early years, we were known to travel all over the United States to buy equipment at auctions. We might have had a pretty major ebay account, as well!
