HDA Truck Pride expanded its footprint in the San Diego market with the addition of E-W Truck & Equipment Company Inc. to its network.
E-W Truck & Equipment Company Inc. is a three-generation family-owned business that has been proudly servicing the San Diego community for 69 years, HDA Truck Pride said. Its service area encompasses both San Diego and Imperial counties with a primary focus on serving Refuse, Transit, Chassis and Municipal contracts.
“HDA Truck Pride is about people and community. The Winters family has dedicated nearly 70 years to the trucking industry and serving the San Diego community,” says Tina Hubbard, president, and CEO of HDA Truck Pride. “We look forward to supporting E-W Truck & Equipment Company as they continue to realize a bright and successful future.”
The E-W Truck & Equipment Company legacy began in 1954, when Earl and Ruby Winters arrived in San Diego, CA, and acquired the sole authorized Cummins Engine Company sales and service facility in the city. A nod to Earl Winters industry moniker, “EW”, the establishment was christened EW Equipment Company and then on July 29, 1965, the incorporation of E-W Equipment Company marked another significant milestone.
In 1974, Stuart Winters, son of Earl and Ruby, assumed the position of CEO, ushering in a new era for E-W Equipment Company where they witnessed a surge in truck sales. It was at that point Stuart added the word, “Truck” to the name and the company expanded by adding service bays and expanding the parts department, said HDA Truck Pride.
Throughout the years, E-W Truck & Equipment Company Inc. continued to broaden the range of products and services it offered. These included a deep expansion into parts to support all highway trucks, trailers and work/refuse equipment. Not stopping there, it went next level on its service offerings by adding an 800 HP Dyno, in addition to a full transmission, differential, axle and gear shop where customers can have their units fully rebuilt and tested, according to HDA Truck Pride.
In 2003, as third generation, bringing his experience and deep involvement in various roles throughout the family business, Jeff Winters, son of Stuart and Linda, assumed the role of CEO. Under his leadership, E-W Truck & Equipment Company Inc. continues to garner a formidable reputation throughout the San Diego market, offering a full-service shop that stands out in any market, said HDA Truck Pride.
