B&W was founded in a small garage in in Humboldt, Kansas. The founders Roger Baker and Joe
Works started out making the highest quality truck beds on the market. Since then, words about
their exceptional truck beds spread and paved the way for B&W.
It was in 1988, when Joe and Roger designed a hitch with a ball that could be pulled out,
turned over, and stowed beneath the bed. Back then the popular option for getting rid of the
gooseneck ball was a large plate with a ball that folded down. This could be a problem since
doing so requires drilling a huge hole in the truck's bed making the installation burdensome.
The new hitch they created was called the "Turnover Ball". B&W' innovation revolutionized the
gooseneck hitch industry.
Unlike their competition,
B&W's products are manufactured and assembled
in the U.S. This is in line with the company's
mission in providing heavy-duty and high quality
products. While implementing the latest
technology in manufacturing its truck beds and
trailer hitches, B&W still believes that its skilled
and dedicated craftsmen make the difference in the
products they offer.
