Century is one of the most recognized names in the truck cap industry. Launched in 1970 as RAM Aluminum in Elkhart Indiana, the company specialized in building aluminum truck caps. Within five years RAM became one of the largest aluminum manufacturers of truck caps in the United States. In the mid 1970s, the company began to build fiberglass truck caps and tonneaus under the name Century Fiberglass. With RAM Aluminum and Century Fiberglass, the company quickly developed a reputation for excellent service, affordable pricing, and a product offering to meet its customer’s needs. Today, Century continues to offer a full line of fiberglass models, as well as aluminum and commercial-grade truck caps. With its network of more than 300 dealers, its traditional styling and time-tested construction, Century is situated in the center of the competitive truck cap and tonneau industry.
