Bremen, Ind.-based Geny Industries was formed in 2011 by Carl Borkholder, who was in the recreational vehicle industry, providing commercial tree care services. His involvement in the commercial tree care business drove home the inconvenience of not having a hitch system that was compatible with all the trucks and towable units necessary for the company’s operation, according to the company. Borkholder designed an adjustable tri-ball hitch, which allowed a truck to tow multiple trailers. The result of this work was the development of the patented Gen-Y Hitch.
Geny Industries is continuing to develop the Gen-Y Hitch line, which currently encompasses eight Class 4 hitches and three Class 5 models. All of these hitches are designed with multiple stacked receivers that enable the three-ball ball mount to be easily adjusted for height and have weight capacities from 10,000-lb. to 20,000-lb, the company said.
The growth in demand has led Borkholder to continue to work on designs for accessories to utilize with Gen-Y Hitch products, including a weight distribution system for use in towing, which is currently being refined and tested, according to Geny Industries.
