If you have ever wondered what happens to your Extendobed when your vehicle is wrecked, look at the following pictures. In reality, not much happens. This particular vehicle rolled several times and was demolished; however, the Extendobed only suffered a few scrapes and bends. We make our units so they are able to take abuse in many different forms and punishment in a variety of situations. Our units are built to last.
Several years ago we had a gentleman show up at our office with his truck, which had an existing Extendobed® in it. The owner expressed that he was very pleased with his Extendobed® and wanted to order another unit for a separate vehicle. We proceeded to take the order and inspect his existing unit. Much to our surprise, the Extendobed® had a serial number of 1. The unit was built over 25 years ago and was one of the first commercial units sold by Extendobed®. We were proud to see one of our oldest units still in service after so many years. We asked if we could repaint it and clean it up, but we were told the unit worked fine in its existing condition and did not need repainting. The owner did allow us time to service it and change out some bearings. Without the service, his Extendobed® was still functioning as it did when it left our facility 25 years ago.
Extendobed® changed ownership in 2012. Kim and Kay Cherry sold their company to Chad Moffat, after 25 years of leadership and direction. Kim and Kay have always insisted that Extendobed® products be built by some of the best craftsmen. Quality is never neglected and all manufacturing is performed in the United States. Kim and Kay have been involved in the service industry for many years and have built a multitude of friendships with emergency service professionals throughout that time. They have always tried to make products that help individuals do their jobs more efficiently and with much emphasis on safety. We would like to thank them for their time and efforts in making Extendobed® a successful company and making it a value to so many industries.
Chad is looking to not only carry on the same company values and continue the same valued relationships, but he plans to create new relationships and continue to always strive to improve our products and make our customers’ jobs easier. We look forward to another 25 years of serving with professionals across the United States and worldwide.
