World War II ends.

Veterans return home, looking to reunite with their families and rebuild their post

war lives. Morris H. Clark finds employment with the Winter-Weiss Company, in Denver, CO. Winter-

Weiss found its original fame inventing and patenting the Portadrill, a truck-mounted drilling rig. The war

effort helped Winter-Weiss expand their services into truck customization. To this day, the more reputable

of our country’s truck equipment companies can trace their roots to Winter-Weiss of Denver.

M.H. Clark was chosen to open a Winter-Weiss branch in New Mexico. He establishes the company

in an unoccupied lettuce processing shed in Albuquerque. The facility was long, narrow, unheated – and

provided a terrific home for the new endeavor. Clark’s sons, Chuck and Don, were born into the business

and grew up working under the tutelage of Winter-Weiss’ excellent mechanics.
