Royal Basket Trucks Celebrating 40th Anniversary

Posted July 31, 2022 at 5:00 pm

Since 1982, Royal Basket Trucks®, Darien, WI, has been manufacturing carts and during that 40-year time frame, the company has become a recognized brand in many industries, including the linen, uniform and facility services industry, according to a news release.

Over the last four decades, Royal has continued to grow and evolve to meet the needs of many environments and operations, expanding with a variety of ergonomically designed cart solutions that focus on process improvement and functionality. Today, Royal manufactures more than 80 different products. As a company, Royal focuses on lean-manufacturing techniques, which allows all products to be built to order and ship on a short lead-time.

In the spring of 2020, Royal expanded its physical footprint with an 80,000-square-foot building addition. This was driven by the need to facilitate large-capacity orders, while maintaining short lead times for all product types. In-house rotational molding and thermal forming are no longer reliant on outside partners. All Royal poly products are manufactured in the company’s Wisconsin facility.

This year, Royal was recognized as a Future 50 company by the MMAC (Metropolitan Milwaukee Association of Commerce), as well as a Top Workplace in Southeastern Wisconsin. Additionally, for the second consecutive year, Royal Basket Trucks will serve as the title sponsor of this year’s TRSA 109th Annual Conference in Nashville, TN.
