Allan W. Lund, a talented entrepreneur, was highly-skilled in devising fiberglass products. Mr. Lund is the brains behind Lund International, which he founded in 1965. Before his journey into manufacturing accessories for the truck industry, Mr. Lund was an educator and insurance salesman. He began fabricating prototype-work for boats, snowmobile, and additional recreational vehicle producers and began making sun-visors in a Minnesota chicken barn in 1974. Lund's unique idea, the Lund Sun-Visor fastened to the cab of a van or truck proving to be a practical and clever idea. Towards the end of the 1970s, as light-truck sales improved, Lund International embarked on producing aesthetic accessories for light-trucks.
Lund International created their second product called a cab-spoiler. An authorized dealer plan was inaugurated to sell products via auto part stores, trim stores, auto body stores, and car washes. Dealer-expediters, who customized brand new trucks prior to leaving the lot, drastically increased product sales. Lund International eventually expanded their collection to twenty additional product-lines, including grill inserts, fender extensions, and bug shields. One of Lund Internationals fastest rising product lines from this time was running-boards, which was principally due to women, who were driving trucks more often, and discovered the convenience of running boards for getting in and out of their truck.
During the winter of 1997, Lund International signed an amalgamation to purchase a much bigger rival, the Deflecta-Shield Corporation of Indianola, Iowa. The company, founded in 1961, effectively produced and marketed hood-shield extending product collections along with running-boards, truck bed protection, storage boxes, tonneau covers, visors, covers, and side window-deflectors. Lund International expanded speedily and became unstoppable by acquiring Belmor, a producer of specialty-accessories for the heavy-duty trucking trade in 1997.
To keep up with the diversification of its portfolio, Lund International obtained Nifty-Products, a design and manufacturing corporation for custom molded floor-mats, trunk liners, and rear cargo bay trays in 2002.
