Tiger Truck was founded in 1999 with the goal of marketing and distributing a reliable and inexpensive off road truck that could service the needs of Business, Industry and Government. The Tiger Truck staff is comprised of team members with a combined total of over 100 years of automotive manufacturing experience thereby providing a strong support system for the Tiger product.
Off road trucks are advantageous where the work application does not require on road use thereby keeping the vehicle on the worksite and avoiding licensing and insurance costs. The off road limitation also discourages employees from using the truck for non-work related activities and lessens the liability exposure of the business or government organization by not having the truck on a public road. Many states allow the licensing of these vehicles but they are restricted to a 25 mph speed limit and select public roads. Customers interested in on road use should check with the local authorities for further information.
The Tiger Truck vision was to have a truck with real work capacity but also be maneuverable to work in tight areas where space was limited. We found such a vehicle available from a Chinese manufacturer. This manufacturer ships these vehicles all over the world. They have joint ventured vehicle manufacturing with major companies such as Ford, General Motors and Mazda. We started by importing the Star Standard Cab and added a Crew Cab and Van due to customer requests.
In 2008, we moved the Tiger Truck operation to Poteau, Oklahoma. We acquired an 180,000 sq. ft. facility on a 26 acre campus. This facility allowed us to detail and store the vehicles indoors while waiting for shipment to our dealers. It also allowed us to do value added modifications where needed. We acquired a sophisticated coating system and currently perform work for a major casting company who is a major supplier to John Deere and Caterpillar equipment companies. We have a “state of the art” E Coating system that is only available in a few areas of the country.
Tiger Truck has become a diversified company by marketing and distributing reliable and cost effective compact trucks and vans and by also supplying high quality coating services to major equipment manufacturers. Our experienced and professional staff is dedicated to providing the highest quality customer service. We hope that we can service your needs in the future.
