WESCO was established in 1959 by the Sambuccetti family in Woodland, California as a retail trailer sales company. Shortly thereafter a small manufacturing facility was built to construct flatbeds, grain hoppers, and specialty trailers. Over time the plant was expanded to allow greater production to match the demand for high quality WESCO Self-unloading WALKING FLOOR® trailers and possum belly tipper trailers were developed for the refuse and agricultural industry, with engineering built into every trailer. The next addition to the WESCO family was the aggregate line of transfer systems and dump bodies. Again more space was needed and the new fabrication shop was built and filled with state of the art metal working equipment and a plasma burning table.
