Pioneer Cover-all was founded in 1967 by the late Harvey Goldstein (1929 -1993). Harvey was forward thinking and understood early on the safety concerns of securing open-top truck bodies and containers. Pioneer invented and was awarded the first ever US patent for a truck covering device. Local and state governments moved quickly to implement litter laws in all 50 states and mandated secured, covered loads in 38. He set his team on a path of building innovative tarping systems and the best dealer network while providing superior value and support. This philosophy, combined with strong leadership and commitment to excellence has helped Pioneer to become the most trusted name in the tarping industry and the largest supplier of automated tarping systems to the waste industry in North America.
In July 2006, Pioneer Cover-all was acquired by Wastequip, Inc. and has been renamed Pioneer, a Wastequip Company. Lenny Brescia, who was part of the original sales team and co-owner, has been appointed President. Wastequip is a world leader in the manufacturing of waste handling equipment. Wastequip’s manufacturing capabilities combined with Pioneer’s dealer network and quest to continually develop innovative tarping solutions will provide our customers with superior products at cost effective prices for years to come.
