Peterson Industries has never been a company who rests on it’s laurels. Why be content with the past when there are so many opportunities for innovation? Each model year brings many improvements and 2013 is no exception!
Being a small company can be a blessing and a curse. On the one hand, we have the ability to make improvements on the “fly”, keeping our product fresh and current. On the other, many of our ideas must be “phased in” because of our inability to use up inventory quickly, either on our floor or product dedicated to us at our vendors, thus causing many of our design ideas to not be implemented at the exact beginning of a model year.

RV-specific navigation is necessary to route large vehicles and towables around road restrictions, low bridges and other physical hazards. However, like all Rand McNally RV GPS devices, the RVND 7720 can be used as a car GPS as well – merely by changing a simple setting.
One of the new features of the RVND 7720 is Wi-Fi connectivity, which [...]
NORTH LIBERTY — Unique Tooling, started in May 2007 to serve the RV industry, managed to grow during the economic downturn and has accelerated by diversifying into plastics, metal and wood-cutting devices as well as tool sharpening.
The firm, which operates in two buildings in North Liberty and has eight employees, had sales of $1.2 million last year, and owner Tom England expects to reach $2 million this year.
