History

    


1954
A shoe repair shop opens in Wahpeton, ND moves into tarp repair and then new tarps.

1969
Growing tarp demand results in the creation of Wahpeton Canvas Company (WCCO) – and more new products.

1980
The Original Shur-Lok® roll tarp is born – no more climbing on trucks and trailers to tarp and protect products! The simple, yet reliable invention revolutionizes the tarp industry.

1992
The truck cover division of the company splits off from WCCO and relocates to Yankton, SD.

1996
A name change to Shur-Co® more closely identifies the company with the Shur-Lok®, its best-known product.

2000
Shur-Co® enters the auto accessories field with its TruXedo® tonneau cover line (later spun off as its own company under new ownership in 2007).

2001
Acquisition is made of a highly automated metal fabrications operation, giving Shur-Co® unmatched capabilities in the tarp industry.

2003
Shur-Co® is named South Dakota’s Family Business of the Year.

2006
Shur-Co® moves into trailer automation with the launch of the 3500 Series electric upgrade for the Shur-Lok®. Much like Shur-Lok’s intro over 25 years ago, the 3500 is unlike anything else on the market, completely revolutionizing the electric tarping industry.

2008
State-of-the-art expansion allows Shur-Co® to keep up with increasing product demand, bringing the company’s total manufacturing area to 150,000 square feet.

2009
The ProTrap® electric hopper opener and the industry’s first five-channel SMARTransmitter® are launched, the perfect complement to the 3500 Series, giving customers a complete SMARTrailer™ line of products.

2010
An important milestone, Shur-Co®, LLC is formed with the existing management team and sparks unprecedented growth and global market expansion.

2011
Shur-Co®, LLC is formed under new ownership.

2012
More products are added to the Shur-Co® line: exclusive SMART2™ and SMART1+™ remotes, 4500 Series HD electric tarp, LiteALL™ LED work light packages, DuraPull™ semi-auto pull tarp and IronSide™ side dump tarp system. Later that year, Shur-Co®, LLC acquires Donovan Enterprises, a top name in construction and waste container tarp systems, with locations in Michigan, Florida and the UK, positioning itself for global growth.

2014
Shur-Co® acquires Roll-Tite™, integrating the product line into the company’s Flatbed division, re-branding it as ShurTite™ – an industry-leading retractable tarp system for flatbed trailers, drop deck trailers, straight trucks and specialty vehicles.

2015
Global expansion continues as Shur-Co® now sells products to over 30 countries on six continents every year.

2016
Growth continues apace for Shur-Co®, LLC. A new branch dedicated to ShurTite™ installs and repairs is opened in Sioux Falls, SD. The Shur-Co® of ND branch moves into a new 24,000 square foot facility in West Fargo, allowing for increased installation capabilities and better product distribution. And, finally, the Shur-Co® of IL branch, having outgrown its previous location, relocates to a new 16,000 square foot facility in Decatur, where it adds ShurTite™ installations to its already busy shop activities.
