Orscheln Products is known as a family company that committed to offering quality engineering, product development, and customization to all of our customers. Orscheln Products set its foundation way back in 1938, when Al Orscheln developed an overcenter parking brake for the vehicles used in his brothers’ trucking business. The brake used a pull-up handle and magnified leverage to help the driver lock the brakes in place, all from inside the cabin, which was new technology in 1938. This overcenter parking brake was developed further and patented in 1946, and the rest is history. Since then, descendants of the original Orscheln brothers have come together to own what is now Orscheln Products. Since its creation, Orscheln Products has been known for creating new ideas, new parts, and new technology to produce great parts for our customers. Orscheln Products thrives on customization, as we are willing to work with any customer to customize a part for their business in the best way that we can.
