GEN-Y Hitch Lands at #529 on Inc. 5000 List Industry leader and towing solutions provider GEN-Y Hitch has had a big year and, from the looks of things, it is going to be getting even bigger. After winning an American Business Association “Golden Stevie” award last month, they have now made the annual Inc. 5000 list of fastest growing companies at number 529. “It is a humbling experience to see this product take off the way that it has,”said GEN-Y founder, Carl Borkholder. “To think about where we were just a few years ago to now… it is hard to even fathom. We feel incredibly blessed!” GEN-Y Hitch, who most recently released a contractor hitch version of the torsion coupler, which followed up their NATDA new product of the year (2017), Gooseneck Torsion Coupler, has several new products in the works. “We are really excited about all we have in the works, and about the upcoming NATDA & SEMA shows,” said Joel Helmuth, National Sales Manager. “We know that it is our customers that got us here, and we really want to keep making amazing products so they continue to be as excited as we are about GEN-Y Hitch.” For more information, visit www.genyhitch.com. New Hitches for Factory Prepped Trucks Shatter Sales Records Riding the wave of popularity of the fastest growing segment of 5th Wheel Towing, PullRite reports record shattering sales at the Land n’ Sea Show in Las Vegas this past week. PullRite introduced a new line of hitches that fit direct to the pucks of the increasingly popular factory prep equipped tow vehicles. As the only 5th wheel hitch manufacturer to offer a fully automatic solution for both short bed & long bed trucks with the factory installed attachment points, PullRite is anticipating another record setting year – a great start towards celebrating its 40th year in business in 2019. PullRite’s OE Series SuperGlide automatic sliding and locking hitches for short bed trucks and OE Series Super 5th automatic locking hitches for long bed trucks don’t require additional adapters or parts – making them easier to install and sell to customers that have OE prepped trucks. Dealers in attendance at last week’s show were extremely excited to see that the most highly regarded name in 5th wheel hitches again has the best solution for all their customers – regardless of their tow vehicle.
