Super Products celebrates its 50th anniversary
Super Products celebrated its 50th anniversary at the end of 2022. Over the years, the company has grown from a small manufacturer to a nationally recognized supplier of vacuum trucks. Super Products was founded late in 1972 by Lionel Moore, Charles O’Bryan and Tom Flynn. The company’s first Supersucker industrial vacuum loader was manufactured in 1973, followed by the Camel combination sewer cleaner in 1976. In 1981, Super Products was sold to Inductotherm, followed by Specialized Industries LP in 2005, before being acquired by Alamo Group in 2014. Today, the company produces five vacuum truck product lines and employs more than 180 people nationwide. Super Products is headquartered in Mukwonago, Wisconsin, and has a broad network of sales representatives supporting contractors, dealers supporting municipalities and, after expanding into the rental market in 2011, nine rental facilities supporting short- and long-term rentals, parts and service.
