Cline Truck/CBT Corporation History
Max Cline started Cline Truck Manufacturing Co in 1952, in Kansas City, Kansas. Before that, he had been top salesman at Dart Truck Co. in the same city and felt the need for well-built, heavy-duty, no-frills vehicles for off-road earthmoving and other special applications In 1979, Cline Truck was purchased by T & J Industries, which kept the company until 1985. In October 1985, CBT Corporation purchased Cline Truck Manufacturing. Cline Truck Manufacturing operated as a division of CBT Corporation until the late 1990s.
CBT Corporation was formed in 1976 by Gene Kabrick
who had been a former employee of Cline Truck and had gained his experience for truck manufacturing as a customer service manager & Public relations man.
CBT build it's first trucks for the Burlington Railroad and later the Mining industry
who used the aerolift truck for the underground roof bolting vehicle. Then CBT engineered and
designed the all terrain soft track vehicle for a number of customers.
However, CBT's primary interest has always been in supplying the government with
their many needed replacement truck parts
CBT Corporation is a family owned business and is currently headed up by
Wayne Kabrick, President & CEO.
