Company History

The year was 1976. “Rocky” won the Academy Award for Best Picture. The Concorde began trans-Atlantic flights. America was celebrating its bi-centennial. And a new company dedicated to providing truck manufacturers with intelligently engineered component parts entered the scene: GT Development.

Like everything else, trucking was different back then. Air suspensions and antilock brakes were yet to be widely implemented. Fleets were smaller. Trucks were boxier.

And we were already developing ways to make trucks better. Early GT Development innovations included a breather vent that didn’t spill diesel fuel on the ground; a rugged, compact air seat height control valve; and an inexpensive solenoid valve for on/off fan clutches.

Even then our products displayed the qualities that differentiate them to this day: smart design and styling, high quality, and robust reliability. Above all, GT products reflected an understanding of our customers’ businesses, challenges, and objectives.
