History

Casper's Truck Equipment was founded by Dan Casper. Dan grew up in the truck equipment business working early in his career with his father at Casper's Mobile Services. Later Dan developed his skills working with other truck equipment distributors in the Green Bay area. Dan recognized the need for experienced and qualified truck fabricators who were knowledgeable about truck equipment while being extremely focused on providing customers with timely and affordable solutions for their work truck needs.

In 1993, Dan Casper, Randy Johnson and Dennis Feit partnered to incorporate TEAM Wisconsin and for a short period of time Casper’s operated as “Team – Kaukauna”. The loosely knit affiliation of the three Team locations disbanded in the late 90’s and company operated independently as Casper’s Truck Equipment.

history1In 2000, Casper's Truck Equipment expanded its service capabilities and moved into a shop in nearby Appleton. The Company quickly upgraded the new home by a significant addition to its facility when the shop was expanded to 19 service bays. Trained and experienced Casper Craftsman, a significant on hand inventory and employees focused on exceeding the customer's expectation for quality and service have combined to make Casper's Truck Equipment one of the leading providers of truck equipment solutions in Wisconsin.

Commercial customers include major trucking companies, general contractors, landscapers, snow & ice maintenance professionals and any work truck owner with a job to get done. Municipal customers include fleet maintenance professionals from the state, county, town and cities throughout Wisconsin and Michigan. Casper's builds municipal trucks to meet the simplest or most complex needs of our municipal customers in order to keep our public roadways maintained and safe.

In 2007, Gene and Christine Lee purchased operations of Casper's Truck Equipment through Lee Truck Equipment, Inc. Although Dan has not been affiliated with the Company since his retirement in 2007, we continue the Casper’s Truck Equipment tradition of excellence.

In 2013, Caper’s Truck Equipment opened a Part Store in Wausau, WI and just one year later (2014), expanded to a full service truck upfitting facility as well.
