|A Heritage of Quality|
Appliance Truck Company began a heritage of quality over 62 years ago with
the introduction of its patented world famous Roller Bearing Crawler
Tread. The solid oak trucks were hand-crafted one at a time under
the direction of W.P. Stevens Sr. Although the frames are no longer
made of oak and production techniques have changed since 1936, some things
will remain the same at Stevens. There has been and will always be
a firm commitment to produce the highest quality product
Conscientious workmanship, the use of lightweight, durable materials, and outstanding customer service will continue to be trademarks of this commitment.
The original concept at Stevens was to build products to free a person's time and energy for other tasks. Original patents were awarded to time saving features such as the Strap Tightener with Automatic Recoil which rewinds the strap automatically for the operator as well as energy saving features like the Roller Bearing Crawler Treads which reduce the amount of energy required to move loads up and down stairs. Another innovative feature introduced by Stevens is the swivel caster assembly which allows heavy loads to be supported by the truck instead of the operator.
the direction of W.P. Stevens Jr., the company has made steady progress by
introducing new models and various attachments to help solve many unique
handling situations. Under the tradename of ESCORT, a complete line
of appliance and vending trucks has evolved through the years to
accommodate most every need. With distributors now located
throughout the United States and foreign countries, the company occupies a
position as one of the leading manufacturers of appliance trucks and
trucks for vending and appliance industries. Stevens Appliance

quality, superior workmanship, and outstanding service.
