Hiway Truck Equipment expands
Sunday, June 17, 2018
Big things are underway at Hiway Truck Equipment, 2246 First Ave. S.
“We’re basically doubling our shop space,” said Brian Forsythe who has co-owned the enterprise with his wife Kathy Forsythe since 1998. “The existing shop floor was 50 feet by 75 feet. The new addition will be 65 by 85.”
Hiway Truck Equipment provides assorted augmentations to trucks.
“What the company does is we sell equipment that goes on trucks,” Brian Forsythe said. “We also repair trailers. We work on anything from for example a pickup truck where we would put equipment on to make it better usable for the end user all the way up to dump trucks and semi trucks. We do a lot of municipal work.”
Adding snowplows to a variety of vehicles is a major part of the company’s business.
