HDA Truck Pride Adds E-W Truck & Equipment in San Diego

E-W Truck & Equipment Co. is a three-generation family-owned business that has been servicing the San Diego community for 69 years.

HDA Truck Pride has expanded its footprint in the San Diego market with the addition of E-W Truck & Equipment Co. to its network.

E-W Truck & Equipment Co. is a three-generation family-owned business that has been servicing the San Diego community for 69 years. The company’s service area encompasses both San Diego and Imperial counties, with a primary focus on serving refuse, transit, chassis and municipal contracts.

The E-W Truck & Equipment Co. legacy began in 1954, when Earl and Ruby Winters arrived in San Diego and acquired the sole authorized Cummins Engine sales and service facility in the city. A nod to Earl Winters’ industry moniker – “EW” – the establishment was christened EW Equipment Co. and then on July 29, 1965, the incorporation of E-W Equipment Co. marked another significant milestone.

In 1974, Stuart Winters, son of Earl and Ruby, assumed the position of CEO, ushering in a new era for E-W Equipment Co., where they witnessed a surge in business growth. It was at that point Stuart added the word “Truck” to the name, and the company expanded by adding service bays and expanding the parts department.

Throughout the years, E-W Truck & Equipment Co. continued to broaden the range of products and services offered. These included a deep expansion into parts to support all highway trucks, trailers and work/refuse equipment. The company further expanded its service offerings by adding an 800-hp dyno in addition to a full transmission, differential, axle and gear shop where customers can have their units fully rebuilt and tested. 

In 2003, Jeff Winters, son of Stuart and Linda, assumed the role of CEO. Under his leadership, E-W Truck & Equipment Co. continues to establish a formidable reputation throughout the San Diego market, offering a full-service shop that stands out in any market, HDA Truck Pride noted.

“HDA Truck Pride is about people and community. The Winters family has dedicated nearly 70 years to the trucking industry and serving the San Diego community,” said Tina Hubbard, president and CEO of HDA Truck Pride. “We look forward to supporting E-W Truck & Equipment Company as they continue to realize a bright and successful future.”
