The recorded history of Elk Point dates back to Lewis & Clark. In his journal, Captain William Clark recorded a “Great deal of Elk Sign” at this campsite along the Missouri River. Despite that significant journal entry, no one today can pinpoint the origin of the name Elk Point. We can pinpoint a few things about Custom Truck in the area, however.
Originally, home of the Load King Headquarters, Load King has been producing first-class trailers and other heavy equipment since 1956 in Elk Point, the state’s southernmost region. Cutting-edge innovation and engineering excellence make us the market leader in trailers and dump trucks, mechanics bodies with the Voyager series, water trucks, and roofing conveyors.
