Jim, along with his brother Bob, run McWelco Products, a well known company here in southern California, especially in the construction and service industries. The business was started by their dad as a small machine shop originally and now makes a variety of high end truck boxes and racks. Jim shares that customers find the quality and craftsmanship of a McWelco product keeps their tools safe and that it often lasts longer than the truck!
