Winter Equipment celebrating 30 years of success

Winter Equipment, which produces premium cutting edges and wear parts for the snow removal and road maintenance equipment industry, is celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2019.

Winter Equipment was founded in 1989 by Kent Winter, who began his career in the welding industry. Bringing his engineering background and industrial welding knowledge, Winter took a leap into entrepreneurship when he started the company in his garage. Using Popsicle sticks, he built his original idea for PlowGuard and began manufacturing the product, a mainstay in the Winter Equipment product line today.

“We would like to recognize and thank all of our employees, customers and partners that have played a role in helping shape Winter Equipment into the company it is today,” said Winter, founder and CEO. “As we reflect on these past 30 years, we find ourselves even more focused on our vision of being a valuable partner to our customers.”

Over the past three decades, the company has grown and evolved to offer a complete line of plow systems, plow guards, plow accessories and road maintenance products.

“For 30 years, innovation has led the development and direction of the company,” Winter said. “Customer input has also been a common thread for all of our products.” 

In addition to creating a logo that commemorates the anniversary, the company said it is planning events throughout the year to celebrate.
