Fruehauf trailers are an iconic brand with a long history. The Fruehauf name traces its origins to the end of the 19th century and began as a manufacturer of trailers in 1914. A blacksmith called Augustine Fruehauf designed and built the first ever semi-trailer for a Model T Ford for a friend who ran a sawmill.
The success of this initial trailer prompted lumber merchants to contact Fruehauf asking for a semi-trailer of their own. This original design was modified, and the business grew over the decades expanding across North and South America and into Europe.
The company diversified until financial problems led to a sell off of some company divisions in 1989. The truck trailer unit continued as the Fruehauf Trailer Corporation. The Polish trailer company, Wielton, purchased a 65% share of Fruehauf France, completing the purchase in 2017. In 2020, a crane truck manufacturer in the UK, MV Commercial, purchased Fruehauf from administration.
