Our Mission

While supporting continued growth in snow products, we shall promote our superior brand of innovative, engineered solutions into new markets that employ core competencies to sustain long-term profitability. We will develop strong partnerships with our customers who demonstrate our core values of integrity, discipline, and social responsibility.

Who We Are

We've led the snow removal industry in innovative wear parts for 25 years. Over that time, Winter® Equipment became the quality standard for public and private sector clients who depend on the best wear parts for their snowplows and other equipment. Our patented blade-saving technologies are engineered to set a new standard of quality in the industry. We settle for nothing less than the highest quality materials and solutions to solve your problems.

What We Do

Every winter, our reliable snowplow blades and blade systems keep DOTs, counties, municipalities, and contractors on the road longer in the harshest conditions. Our main focus is to reduce your costs through practical engineering, the highest quality materials, and collaborative service. To do this, we engineer wear parts for every kind of snowplow out there—from highway and city plows to the light-duty trucks that are the lifeblood of private contractors. Winter® blade systems and blades only come in proven packages that get the job done right. We use the highest quality steel and carbide on the market to build every one of them. We’ve engineered and patented the best carbide, steel, shock-absorbing, articulating, rubber, and underbody blade systems on the market. We even have a serrated steel blade system that is 100% made in the USA. We’re constantly engineering new solutions for our clients and even provide custom solutions when it makes the most sense for you.

How We Do It

Our snowplow wear solutions begin with your needs. Once we’ve identified the problems you need to solve, we dedicate every expert on our team to engineer and manufacture your solutions. Winter® only employs the best engineers, machinists, technical representatives, and professional specialists who have the experience and passion to provide the quality you deserve at a price that makes sense for you. This unique level of collaboration, expertise, and experience is what sets us apart from the pack. Solving your problems is our business. That’s The Winter Way®.
