About Independent:

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 company was co-founded by Richard Novak, Jay Shiurman, Fausto Vitello, and Eric Swenson and the Stage 1 model was the inaugural product, released on May 23, 1978 in Newark, California, US. According to original team rider, Rick Blackhart, the Independent truck (or "Indy") was designed as a response to the lack of quality skateboard trucks on the market at the time. In reference to the two other major truck companies on the market, Blackhart stated that one broke, and one didn't turn (Bennett Trucks and Tracker Trucks, respectively).

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.(via wikipedia)
