Our story begins almost 60 years ago, when our business was focused on fire apparatus, specialty welding and custom fabrication. Over the years, we’ve grown and adjusted to customer needs, which resulted in the Kurtz Truck Equipment that customers trust and depend upon today. Quality and performance have always been our top priorities, whether we were building dairy tankers back in the 80s or offering the top-quality truck equipment we do today. There’s a reason why we’ve been in business for this long – customers know and trust the Kurtz name for high standards, craftsmanship and experience.
