For more than forty years, Dynacraft, a division of PACCAR Inc, a diversified global manufacturer of medium and heavy-duty on and off-highway trucks sold under the Kenworth, Peterbilt and DAF nameplates, has provided the company’s truck manufacturing divisions and the PACCAR Parts service parts division with high quality components, subassemblies and specialized services. Founded in 1968, Dynacraft was organized to consolidate purchases of bulk hose products for the five U.S. Kenworth and Peterbilt factories then in operation. Initial products included a wide selection of air brake, fuel, hydraulic and cooling system hose for heavy-duty trucks. Within a short time Dynacraft began manufacturing complete hose assemblies to facilitate improved efficiency at PACCAR truck factories. During the 1970’s Dynacraft added brass and steel hose-end adapters to its product offering and established itself as full-line distributor of fluid systems components for PACCAR original equipment manufacturing and service requirements. By 1985 Dynacraft’s business volume had grown substantially with significant product line additions such as valves, v-belts, nylon air brake hose and fittings, silicone cooling system hose, refrigerant hose and fittings, hose for special applications such as compressor discharge and wiper spray, and hose assembly equipment, tools and accessories.
