Timeline of Douglas Dynamics

North America's Leading Snow and Ice Control Equipment Brands

Established in 1948 and 1952, respectively, FISHER® and WESTERN® are the truck-mounted snowplow pioneers. Through several generations they’ve become the industry's two premier brands -- with well-deserved reputations for quality, dependability and outstanding customer service among our professional snow plowing customer base.


A relative newcomer, BLIZZARD® burst onto the scene over a decade ago with product innovations that established new standards for snowplowing productivity and versatility.


With roots dating back to 1977, TrynEx® International developed a comprehensive line of highly-regarded SnowEx® ice control equipment, TurfEx® turf application equipment and SweepEx® industrial attachment products.


Together these brands form Douglas Dynamics.


Although each of our brands maintain its own distinct product characteristics, "best practices" developed jointly or individually at our modern manufacturing and parts warehousing and shipping facilities in Milwaukee, WI, Rockland, ME and Madison Heights, MI are exchanged and implemented company-wide.


From the very top levels of management on down, the entire Douglas Dynamics organization is absolutely dedicated to providing our dealers and their customers with the highest possible levels of product quality, customer service and product support.
