Independent Truck Company is a skateboard truck manufacturer based in Santa Cruz, California, United States (US). Established in 1978, the company is owned by NHS, Inc. and sponsors an extensive list of team riders. The trucks are manufactured in the city of San Francisco, US, by Ermico Enterprises, Inc., the only dedicated skateboard truck foundry in the US.
The iconic logo for the trucks, the Alisee cross (often mistaken for the Iron Cross, the logo is actually a variant of the Cross pattée), was inspired by an image of Pope John Paul II, who was wearing the icon on his vestment in an edition of TIME magazine. It has remained the Independent logo since the company's inception.
