Global outlook, Tailored approach.

Fontaine Fifth Wheel are specialists in truck and trailer coupling.

We work at the forefront of haulage technology to keep your fleet on the road and off the repair list. Our specialist experience, knowledge and expertise enables us to offer a broad range of technically tailored options – meeting your exacting needs.

On top of our world-class products, we support our customers just as well as we service their fleets – doing the right thing, in the right way, at the right time, to build valued long-term partnerships that go the distance.

Combining our fifth wheel expertise and service ethos to ensure your fleet will always be fit for the long haul.

Just like many of our long-term partnerships, we’ve been around for a while. Our expertise has grown steadily since John Fontaine founded the Fontaine Truck Equipment Company back in 1940.

Soon after, he invented the very first pressed steel fifth wheel and we’ve been pushing the boundaries ever since to become a global fifth wheel manufacturer.

As an integral part of the Marmon Group, we operate within the Highway Technology sector – which services the heavy-duty truck industry with a wide range of high quality truck and trailer components, including fifth wheels.

Marmon Holdings Inc is part of Berkshire Hathaway Inc, a global diversified industrial organisation. This means we have the support of a global group, but at the same time, the independence of a niche technology manufacturer.
