Founded on fenders. Ready for more.
In March of 1995, a journey began that would allow an opportunity for dreams, talent, dedication, hard work, commitment, imagination, and innovation to all come together in one organization known as Best Fender Products.
Driven by the leadership of founders Buddy McCollum and Jerry Clay, BFP has become the industry leader in manufacturing of fabricated trailer components. Their vision to do things differently set a path followed by many more to come. As the years have added up, the evolution of the business has continued with a commitment to perfection that was instilled from the very beginning.
Buddy is a second-generation entrepreneur from the trailer industry. His passion, knowledge, and respect have proven to be a vital asset throughout the decades. He has over fifty years of experience that have been invaluable. Jerry, a public accountant by trade, became involved in the trailer industry in the late ’60s. He committed a major portion of the rest of his life investing in his companies with a passion and work ethic that still has resounding effects today.
Over the past 25 years, BFPs growth has been truly amazing. What started as a modest trailer fender manufacturing company has grown into a world-class enterprise. The family has grown in number and experience. The blessings are more than can be counted. BFP works with the best employees, the best suppliers, and the best customers in the world!
Today’s leadership reflects the foundation that was prepared in the early days. There are over 500 years of collective trailer industry experience throughout the management group. Finding unique manufacturing solutions that add value to your business is what BFP does better than anyone else!
