Like many American stories, CURT comes from humble beginnings. Our company started in 1993 as a trailer ball distribution business run out of the back of a car. It wasn't long before we began our own manufacturing, expanded our product lines and brought on more members to the CURT team.


In 1995, we designed and manufactured our first custom-fit receiver hitch, soon to be followed by countless more.   In 1998, we introduced a line of custom color hitches in red, white, blue, green, gray and yellow.



In 1999, we constructed a 75,000 sq. ft. facility in Eau Claire to serve as our official headquarters.   In 2002, we added 5th wheel hitches, bike racks and cargo carriers to our product line.



In 2006, we established our eCommerce and video department, bringing sales and marketing to the online world.   In 2008, we began manufacturing a variety of electrical products, including converters and T-connectors.



In 2011, we added a finishing line for our industry-leading liquid Bonderite® undercoating.   In 2015, we achieved ISO / TS 16949 certification, the highest level of quality certification in the automotive industry.


Over the years, we have designed, manufactured and shipped countless products. We've gone from one warehouse to 12. We’ve updated our logo, transformed our look and even changed our slogan, but one thing we will never change is our commitment to our customers and our value for our associates.

Our guiding principle remains: the customer is KING and our associates are our greatest ASSET.
