Winter Equipment Hits 30

Winter Equipment, an established leader in premium cutting edges and innovative wear parts for the snow removal and road maintenance equipment industry, is celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2019.

Winter Equipment was founded in 1989 by Kent Winter, who began his career in the welding industry. Bringing his engineering background and industrial welding knowledge, Winter took a bold leap into entrepreneurship when he started the company in his garage. Using popsicle sticks, he built his original idea for PlowGuard and began manufacturing the product, which is a mainstay in the Winter Equipment product line today.

Over the past three decades, the company has grown and evolved to offer a complete line of plow systems, plow guards, plow accessories and road maintenance products.
