Wesco Story


Wesco Trailers was started in 1954 by Jack and Doris Furtick – building trailers beside their home in Cayce, SC.  The business continued to grow to the point that Jack and Doris devoted all their time to the company.  In 1968, a young Jerry Digges joined Wesco.  He was energetic and willing to do anything to get the job done.  This “can-do” attitude eventually got him promoted to Plant Manager, and when it was time to sell the business in 1992, Jerry took the opportunity and bought the company.  His philosophy of reliability, safety, and customer service grew the brand throughout the Carolinas.  Jerry spent the next 22 years developing trailers that met new market needs, always reminding the team at Wesco the importance of meeting our customer’s needs before, during, and after a sale.   In 2013, Mickie reminded Jerry that he wasn’t getting any younger and maybe it was time to think about retiring.  That’s when Jerry decided to look for the right people to carry the flag for Wesco.  Several suitors were considered and eventually a deal was struck.

Les Jerry Les Barsony purchased the company from Jerry in April of 2014.  Les is an engineer with years of manufacturing experience in both large and small companies.

The philosophies first created with Jack and Doris carried on by Jerry and Mickie have become our company philosophies.
