Here is a full history of Truxedo business:
1953 The company starts out as a shoe repair business. Edward Shorma opens his "Wahpeton Shoe Hospital" in the basement of a clothing store in the small Midwestern town of Wahpeton, North Dakota . Shoe repair spawns tarp repair, then new tarps, tractor seat repair, new tractor seats and repair/replacement of swather belts.
1969 The company moves to a remodeled seed and feed building and enters into the wood business. A growing demand for the wooden cleats on swather belts results in the creation of Wahpeton Canvas Company - and a whole new line of products.
1973 The company's 40-person work force presses the limits of its downtown location. A new steel building is constructed north of town, with such luxuries as a loading dock, office space and a steel fabrication shop.
1975 In just a few years, the company has expanded to producing original equipment seats, campstools, cots and veneer-wrapped wood for interior and exterior house trim.
1980 The Original Shur-Lok® Roll Tarp is born.
1992 Ed Shorma's children purchase the truck cover division of Wahpeton Canvas Company from their father and relocate it to Yankton, South Dakota. The move allows Ed to expand the wood division in Wahpeton and positions the Yankton plant for increased growth.
1996 A name change more closely identifies the company - now Shur-Co.® – with its most successful product, the Shur-Lok® Roll Tarp.
2000 The Original TruXedo® is introduced.
2003 Shur-Co.® is chosen South Dakota Family Business of the Year. Loyal customers, a state-of-the-art facility, short lead times and quality products, plus eight nationwide locations make Shur-Co.® the largest tarp-manufacturing company in the U.S. and all of North America .
