When Fourth of July comes around each year we have the privilege to reflect on what it means to be American.  When Torklift Central founder Jon Kay opened Torklift Central as a one bay shop in 1976, he laid the foundation for how he believed an American business should conduct itself.  Nearly 40 years later, we are grateful to be celebrating another travel season of doing right by our customers both in the United States and around the world.

Here are just a few of the ways we do our best to live up to what we believe it means to be an American-made RV and towing business:

American-made manufacturing materials 

Every product Torklift Central manufactures is made from materials sourced from the United States. Our EcoHitch is an American-made hidden trailer hitch manufactured from aerospace grade aluminum, stainless steel or steel that’s recycled from the American metal industry.

Our wholesale manufacturing division, Torklift International holds to the same standard.  Every metal part Torklift International manufactures and distributes throughout the United States and around the world is built with true American steel, aluminum and other metals produced right here in the US.  Torklift Central and Torklift International support the US steel and metal industry and most importantly the thousands of families they represent in every way we possibly can both through our retail and manufacturing divisions.

Torklift International only manufactures with American metals. 

SuperHitch Hero

Whether you’re towing a substantial load with a SuperHitch, keeping your truck camper secure with our tie downs or performing any other sort of heavy hauling with a Torklift International product, you can rest assured that it’s built with strongest metals in the world; American metals.

Torklift International’s SuperHitch Hero is named in honor of the countless heroes that makes America great.  Whether it be our great military men and women that put themselves in harm's way daily; our police, fire and other public individuals or even the unsung heroes living in our neighborhood just taking time to do the right thing and help others. Through all of their sacrifices, hard work, dedication and selflessness, we are able to live in a country we truly believe to be the land of the free.  

American-made products

We strive to carry American-made RV and towing products that are made by American hands with American materials whenever possible.  If you browse through our showroom floor you’ll find the Made In America badge on products throughout our facility.

PullRite 5th Wheel Hitch

It’s no coincidence that some of the most respected names in the RV and towing business are companies that take pride as holding the title of Made In USA manufacturers.  We don’t go out of our way to carry these manufacturers simply because their products are made exclusively in the United States, but also because their decades of world-renowned quality speaks for itself.

We are happy to carry American-made manufacturers such as Pullrite, B&W, SMI, Roadmaster and many more.

Commitment to green business

Sustainable business and sustainable living go hand in hand.  We believe in protecting our national resources and our environment; America is a beautiful place and we do everything we can to keep it that way.  Here are just a few of the ways how: 
  • Company-wide mandatory recycling policies for all unused metals, packaging materials and office supplies 
  • Regulation of all heating and air conditioning systems to maximize efficiency 
  • Blink electric car charger in our parking lot made available to customers and non-customers alike
  • Manufacturing the EcoHitch for electric, plug-in hybrid, hybrid and partial zero emission (PZE) vehicles  

Happy 4th of July from all of us here at Torklift Central.  To learn more about who we are and why we’re proud to be American, read our story here
