Putnam hitches

Putnam Hitches

Headquartered in Bronson, Michigan, Putnam Hitch Products is a family owned and run manufacturer of trailer hitches and towing accessories. Founded in the early 1960’s by C.J. Putnam, Putnam Hitch Products began by producing precision crafted hitchballs for the towing industry. For almost two decades, Putnam Hitch Products built their reputation providing other towing industry manufacturers with the largest selection of precision-made hitchballs available.

In the early 80’s, Putnam Hitch Products expanded their offerings to include receiver hitches for cars, trucks and vans. As the vehicle market evolved, Putnam Hitch Products kept pace by developing hitches for the new vehicles like the SUV.
