We began distributing automatic and manufacturing hand held 2 -step truck wash equipment in the mid 80's. By the late 80's Bud made the decision to begin manufacturing automatic Truck, Bus and Train Wash Systems and while he and the original team went through some extremely challenging times, we have manufactured well over 1000 units and have never looked back.
We will continue going through challenging times while remaining focused on the journey and Doing the Next Right Thing. Whiting Systems innovation in automated trailer washout equipment is a leading product for fleets who take sanitation seriously.

"I want to thank my mom and dad for the leadership, mentorship and the providing of opportunities for us all and Whiting Systems since 1974.
Neither I nor Jim have ARRIVED.” It isn’t a destination, but a Journey. It is a handing off the baton while continuing the race.
It will be a continuation of THE WHITING WAY while striving to be even better. As I have always said and will continue to say: We want to be the Employer of Choice and the Provider of Choice, while remaining Most Profitable." said Russ Whiting
