Jerr-Dan’s beginnings reach back more than a half century to 1959, when farm equipment maker Grove Manufacturing began developing a carrier for its products. Over time, that carrier would become known by a variety of names, including “rollback,” “tilt-bed,” “slideback,” or “flatbed.”
In 1972, Jerr-Dan was formed by J. Pool and D. Reynolds. The company built EZ-Dumpers and tow trucks. One year later, Jerr-Dan purchased Grove Manufacturing Company’s agricultural industrial product division.
