The Trucker® Series through the Years
September 1999 — The Trucker I 6900 flatbed trailer ladder introduced
2004: The original Cast Aluminum mounting hooks changed to CNC Billet Aluminum, an ‘unbreakable’ hook that added durability and improved safety to The Trucker I
2007: Roll Tarp Trucker was introduced, designed to provide access to Tarp Trailers
2007-2009: With the brand strengthened as a result of the ‘unbreakable’ mounting hooks and having developed several strong relationships with large established businesses, Trucker® began to take off. Drop Deck Trucker was introduced and the four step ECO Trucker was developed and ANSI rated @ 375 lbs.
2010: The 4 Step Trucker ladder was created for access to crane trucks and taller trailers
2011: As The Trucker® grew, Storage and Mounting Options were developed
- Ladder Storage Racks were developed in Upright and Shelf variations
- The Utility Trucker was introduced as a mounted ladder option that pivots up 180⁰
- A Steel Mounting Bracket was developed for mounting ladders without pockets
2011-2012: Mobile Flatbed Work Platforms with Safety Rails were engineered as a custom product request and became a standard product in use at several Construction, Transportation, and Manufacturing companies
- October 2011: The 4’ Platform designed and ANSI rated at 3-Man (3000 lb.)
- August 2012: 8’ Work Platform designed and ANSI rated at 3-Man (3000 lb.)
2013: All Trucker Series ladders were ANSI rated at 375 lbs. Type IAA Special Duty, the highest available Extra Heavy Duty rating for specialty ladders
2014: This year The Trucker® Series was granted an official trademark, new products are in development, and we are looking forward to 15 more years and beyond!
Today The Trucker® Series of ladders, storage racks and work platforms is capable of equipping most any truck fleet or stationary truck with fall protection equipment that is convenient, versatile and durable. This growth is in large part a result of relationships with customers that were willing to share their workplace access safety goals.
