Minimizer Celebrates 30 Years With Anniversary Sweepstakes

minimizerFamily owned and operated Minimizer is celebrating 30 years with 30,000 ways to say thank you to its customers.

Thirty years ago, Lorraine Kruckeberg backed her vehicle over a Rubbermaid trash can, inspiring her husband Dick Kruckeberg to invent heavy-duty poly truck fenders. Thus, Spray Control Systems Inc., which does business as Minimizer, was born.

“We’ve grown exponentially during the past 30 years,” said Craig Kruckeberg, CEO and chief visionary at Minimizer. “We began manufacturing fenders and have expanded into other areas of the aftermarket heavy-duty trucking industry by offering an array of bracket kits, toolboxes, customized floor mats, LED lights, slick disks, decorated mud flaps and now, a new maintenance line.”

The company is celebrating the milestone with the Minimizer 30th Anniversary Sweepstakes, which will award a total of $30,000 to two Minimizer customers.

“Thirty years of successful product innovation and marketplace growth is a milestone we want to share with the truck operators who made it possible,” said Jason Rhoads, director of marketing at Minimizer.

Minimizer customers who spend $100 or more on Minimizer products are eligible to be entered into the sweepstakes. Plus, the larger the purchase, the more entries the customer receives. Customers can learn more about the sweepstakes by watching the Minimizer 30th Anniversary Sweepstakes video on the Minimizer YouTube channel.

The sweepstakes runs from Aug. 21 through Dec. 31. No purchase necessary to enter or win. See official rules for details at
