Our history photo

Our History

The Hicks family has been in the dump trailer industry for 70+ years. We understand how painful costly maintenance and repairs are. Glen Hicks recognized as early as the 1950s that bolted joints could perform in areas where welded joints fail. Aluminum alloys used in extrusions lose much of their yield strength when welded. Hicks is built using Huck fasteners. By not welding, we have no areas of low yield strength which is where competitors’ units fail. Hicks will provide you with lower weight, a beautiful finish, and greater durability.

The Hicks Family has served thousands of aggregate haulers over decades. We are dedicated to maximizing your trailers' uptime and payload.
