UnitedBuilt's History

  • 1947
  • 1972
  • 1984
  • 2002
  • 2020

United Truck & Equipment was founded by Lester A. Trauscht after he returned from his service in WWII and found an opportunity selling surplus military supplies. Lester and his wife Virginia had two sons, Larry and Mark, and from an early age, Lester began imparting his business knowledge to his sons.

Lester was dedicated to catering to the unique needs of his customers. In 1972, when a customer expressed a need for a water truck, it marked a pivotal moment for the business, leading United Truck to manufacture its inaugural water truck. Over the subsequent 52 years, United Truck and Equipment set the standard in the water truck industry by consistently producing top-quality products supported by the longest water tank warranty.

In 1984, United Truck moved to its current location to meet the growing demands for its products.

In 2002, after years of dedicated work and expansion, Lester retired and placed his trust in his sons to continue the business.

Following Larry and his wife Sheila's retirement in 2020, Matt and his wife purchased the company and rebranded it as UnitedBuilt, to underscore the company's ongoing commitment to manufacturing top-quality, fully customizable equipment that is proudly manufactured in the United States of America.
