In 1994, Gene Dubiel & Dough Erickson purchased the business and renamed it Universal Truck Equipment, Inc. In 1997, Donnie Bjorge bought into the company. A new facility was constructed in 1998 between Centerville & Galesville, WI. Since then, we have been slowly growing & expanding. In 2004, Rich Kiekhoefer became an owner, and an additional office & showroom was added. In 2017, Donnie & Rich bought out Gene. Both owners are very active in the business as Donnie is the sales & office manager and Rich manages the shop and oversees all maintenance and site upkeep.

Wright Trailers has been selling and manufacturing equipment trailers in Southeastern Massachusetts since 1984. A third generation company started by the owner Dan Wright, after his retirement Dan's son Steven took over the company's day-to-day operations. Wright Trailers specializes in building trailers to a higher standard than the industry. These are trailers made to work and be worked, unlike the cookie-cutter mass produced models sold by their competitors. Wright Trailers also build one-off custom trailers to fit any need including platforms for the popular Tiny Homes, and also trailers to move portable restrooms.
During the winter months when the trailer industry is slow, Wright Trailers sells and services snow and ice control equipment. They are a factory-direct dealer for both BOSS Snowplows and Fisher Snowplows and carry Evolution Edges snow plow wear parts.
"With great pricing, reasonable turn around times, and customer service that is second-to-none, Evolution Edges has made us both very competitive and profitable," said Adam Caron of Wrights Trailers. "We followed salesman Calvin Garner to Evolution Edges after his departure from one of their competitors and haven't looked back. We look forward to doing business with Evolution Edges for many years to come."

Perma-Line Corporation (www.perma-line.com) was founded in 1958 by Ray Borgatti, Sr. We have been serving the sign and plow blade consumer for over 60 years.
We were one of the first thermoplastic line companies applying lines to the highways and roads in New England. As a manufacturer of traffic and street signs and a distributer of many traffic safety supply products, in the winter of 1994 we added plow blades to our product line. Our vast inventory of cutting edges consists of 1/2” or 5/8” & 3/4” along with carbide blades, to serve municipalities, plow contractors, and the landscaping plow community. In 2009 we entered into relationship with Chemung Supply’s Evolution Edges.
With the help of sales rep Calvin Garner, our relationship has been smooth with Evolution Edges’ dedication toward perfection of the edges they produce, as well as getting the blades to our facility, and in turn it enables us to sell to our customers. With regard to the winter weather in Boston we have had in the past three blizzards, Evolution Edges was able to procure 5 truckloads of blades in a two-week period. Something positive can be said for a family-owned business with the understanding of how dynamics work. They have been very accommodating to help with our needs. I will continue to do business with Chemung Supply for years to come.
Perma-Line has been in business for over 60 years and is family-owned and run with it now being a third generation business.
