Royal Basket Trucks Celebrates 40 Years in Business

Cart maker recently expanded with 80,000-square-foot addition

DARIEN, Wis. — 2022 marks the 40th year in business for cart manufacturer Royal Basket Trucks.

Since 1982, Royal says it has been dedicated to providing high-quality cart solutions and world-class customer service while continuing to grow and evolve to meet the needs of many environments and operations, including laundromats and commercial laundry facilities.

The company’s product line features a variety of ergonomically designed cart solutions that focus on process improvement and functionality. Royal manufactures over 80 different products, including sewn basket trucks, rotationally molded carts and specialty laundry cart solutions.

Its lean manufacturing techniques allow all products to be built to order and ship on a short lead time, Royal says.

In spring 2020, Royal expanded its physical footprint with an 80,000-square-foot building addition. This was driven by the need to facilitate large orders while maintaining short lead times for all product types. In-house rotational molding and thermal forming are no longer reliant on outside partners. All Royal poly products are manufactured in this facility.

Royal believes in community participation and is a strong supporter of local nonprofits. This year, the company was recognized as a Future 50 company by the Metropolitan Milwaukee Association of Commerce and a Top Workplace in Southeastern Wisconsin by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
