Trachte History - 1940s
It wasn't until after World War II when metal buildings gained widespread public acceptance. At the forefront of the metal building craze was the Quonset Hut. The popularity of the Quonset lent well to Trachte's barrel-vaulted roof buildings with corrugated siding. Soon Trachte's commercial and industrial buildings were marketed through a national dealer network. Trachte buildings became familiar sights as companies such as Oscar Mayer, Schappe Pontiac, Wisconsin Department of Transportation, Standard Oil, and Sinclair Oil considered them ideally suited to meet their needs.
