A family tradition for 75 years, Witzco Trailers continues its commitment to the production of high quality equipment and outstanding customer service.
The company--originally named IR Witzer Co.--was founded in1938 by Israel and Rebecca Witzer in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania as a steel fabrication plant. Through their dedication to delivering an outstanding product, IR Witzer became a success and consequently grew to become a larger company. Israel and Rebecca’s dream of a successful family business unfolded as the generations that followed them involved themselves in the company. Under their guidance, their children and grandchildren not only learned the art of steel fabrication, but also how to run the business and what it stood for.
In 1979, the family relocated their operations to a more temperate climate in Florida. With that move came a new facility and aspirations. As the economic environment became difficult in the early 1980’s, IR Witzer took on new challenges. With much thought and deliberation, the manufacture of their new product line was on the way, lowboy trailers. In 1997, IR Witzer Company began operation under the new title of Witzco Trailers Incorporated, manufacturing the Witzco Challenger Trailer. Ten years later the company expanded, TrailCo Parts International was started. Today, Witzco supplies an extensive selection of trailer and transport parts.
Now, a little more than 7 decades later, Witzco is still family owned and run.
