Ermico takes the title. Probably the most important company in this industry as far as shaping the hardware we use today.

Obvious answer is High Speed

Thrasher
Ermico
Dlxsf
juxtapoz

SLAP which is the greatest shit. When I was a child and I got my free Slap #1 at something else with the purchase of maybe a complete.

It must've been a sign. I didn't follow it early enough. I'm here now tho. I would be way way less ok without slap pals.

Im never really wanted anything from skating except pals to befriend. I love you all.

I believe that if everyone had what we have the world would be a much better place

What do you mean by greatest company?

Ya'll ain't gonna wanna hear this but if we're talking about who had the greatest impact on skating I'd have to say Powell and World. Those are the brands that I most closely associate with the fundamental tidal shifts that modern skating arose from.

If we're just talking about the coolest/best team ever it's 101.

The correct answer probably isn't a single company, but a person: Fausto Vitello.

Whether it is High Speed Production, Ermico or Deluxe Distribution, brands under these have outlast any competition, have given opportunities to so many important people and are still relevant and shaping skateboarding in the '20's.

Others have been sold, revamped, quit, changed owners etc. but Faustos impact is still going strong years after his passing.

I guess if we had to pick one company though....maybe Indy....or Thrasher, they seem to be winning...

hot take: Supreme

Agree with all of this, even your question.
