70 Year Business Anniversary
When Wm. Cohen came the US early in the 1900’s from Russia, he spoke no English. He started out doing various jobs until he started the “junk” business. He managed to adapt very well, winning government contracts, taking down water towers, balloon hangers, and generally picking up all types of scrap. Eventually, when William’s two sons got involved with the business, they wanted to settle down and open a truck salvage yard. So in 1950, they bought a 27 acre parcel and started the truck business. The first building they built, they used the steel trusses that were salvaged from the balloon hanger that they dismantled! This building is still being used today. Over the years, additions were added, offices, garages, and storage buildings.
In the 70’s, it was decided to specialize in rebuilding rears & transmissions for trucks. We have established a reputation for building quality units that we stand behind. We also buy & sell used trucks, repair trucks, and of course scrap trucks. We have exported to over 40 countries for over 50 years.
We now have a fourth generation involved with the family business.
