In 1971, Ken and Virginia Rauch moved from Denver, Colorado. As resident sales personnel for Wilson Trailer, Ken traveled the state of Montana and northern half of Wyoming getting acquainted with a new territory and meeting many new customers. Virginia kept the home fires burning caring for two young children.
In 1975, Ken and Virginia bought the sales business. A year later they purchased a service and repair business to complement their growing business.
What began as a 60′ x 72′ shop/sales department and a 10′ x 70′ mobile office trailer has expanded to 120′ x 72′ office, service, and parts department, sitting on three plus acres located on I-90 in Lockwood. Parts storage includes tow outbuilding providing an additional 3,000 square feet. The Johnson Lane Internchange on I0-90 (Exit 455) offers access to K. R. Rauch Company from either direction – West (Exit 452 – 1/2 mile) or East (Exit 455 – 1 1/2 mile).
Our Service facility has two drive-through bays for ease of access and operates Monday through Friday 7:30 A.M. to 4:30 P.M. We have four full-time technicians to assist you in anything from the smallest repair to a full rebuild of a totally wrecked livestock trailer.
K. R. Rauch Company is rapidly moving into the second generation of K. R. Rauches. The leadership and skills of Kevin Rauch hold the promise of a third generation of Rauches.
Our History continues to guide us as Wilson Trailer stands out as a steadfast leader.
