Towing and recovery equipment specialist Jerr-Dan will celebrate its 50th anniversary throughout 2022, with activities planned for team members, distributors, and customers in honor of its five decades of innovation and commitment to quality and reliability, the Oshkosh Corporation company reported.
Founded in 1972, Jerr-Dan initially built carriers and trailers and introduced the first aluminum carrier in 1977. Over the past 50 years, Jerr-Dan has become recognized globally as a leading manufacturer of light, medium, and heavy duty wreckers, carriers, and rotators.
Jerr-Dan has earned several patents for its products. These include the vehicle transporter, removable/replaceable wear pads, underlift assembly, independent wheel-lift, and underlift control.
“As a company, we are proud of our 50-year legacy of innovation and performance, and our team is proud to provide the highest quality products every day to the operators that rely on our trucks to get the job done. Our mission isn’t just to build the most reliable equipment in the industry. It’s also to empower the men and women who make sacrifices every day to help others in need,” said Bob Nelson, vice president and general manager of Jerr-Dan. “And we are looking to develop innovative products for the next 50 years so we can continue to do just that.”
