Learn more about JBH Inc. and our history

JBH Inc. was first established in 1975 by JB Helmuth. At that time, sandblasting and painting were their intended areas of specialty. Within the next five years, they expanded into the refurbishment of fire trucks and ambulances and their reputation as a company continued to gain momentum. By 1983, JBH Inc. had further expanded into painting and flooring flatbeds for a local manufacturer.


Soon, the installation of refrigeration equipment and liftgates became a routine part of the services they offered. It was then during the mid-'90s that JBH Inc. decided to focus on designing and creating custom-made, non-standard trailers for a variety of purposes.

To this day, JBH Inc. continues to install the absolute best in available refrigeration equipment and further specializes in

remote evaporator system installations and

evaporator guard designs. In addition,

JBH Inc.-designed pallet stops and heavy-duty bulkheads are known to be among the best in the industry.


JBH Inc.'s heavy-duty dock bumpers for tuck-under gates are also ranked as one of the strongest available options in the market. Any modifications or additions made to your semitrailers are bead blasted at our location in our state-of-the-art, self-contained blast room and then painted on-site as well.

More information about our available services

JBH Inc. has always been proud of its reputation as a progressive company and the

21st century marked the addition of advanced computer-controlled fabrication equipment, the expansion of the JBH Inc. evaporator guard options, and the new specialty trailer designs that hadn't been seen before.


Today, JBH Inc. is still the largest installer of liftgates for semitrailers nationwide. We are also able to install liftgates from any manufacturer, regardless of the specifics of their product. The use of modern test equipment and the necessary knowledge and experience to be able to create and install underride guards on any liftgate are two more strengths unique to the company.
