Thank goodness my mother is a bad driver

Thank goodness my mother is a bad driver. Minimizer, manufacturer of poly truck fenders, poly toolboxes, customized mud flaps, and bracket kits, is proud to celebrate its 25th Anniversary.

The owner recollects how the company started. His father was the founder. "Thank goodness my mother is a bad driver," Craig Kruckeberg recalls. His mom backed her car over the Rubbermaid® garbage can. His father, Dick Kruckeberg, popped the can back into shape.

Enter the idea of a plastic fender.

That was 25 years ago. Dick Kruckeberg was a hard-working flatbed driver. He always delivered his loads clean. He knew this was critical to his success. Because of the nature of the heavy truck industry, the metal fenders he purchased for his truck kept getting damaged.

He knew there had to be a better way. And his wife's poor driving gave rise to Minimizer, the lightest, most durable, longest lasting truck fenders, bracket kits and truck accessories in the trucking industry.

Minimizer's longevity and commitment to continuous improvement have gotten it to where it is today. And they're here to stay.

After raising three generations in the heavy truck industry, the Kruckeberg's know they've got the right combination of expertise, an attitude bent on hard work, and a sense of justice and equality towards both customers and employees.

Minimizer delivers premium quality products with a lifetime warranty. This was the founder's vision and Minimizer will carry the torch for another 25 years and beyond. Minimizer continues to create the products of tomorrow to better serve you.
