Utility Trailer Manufacturing Company Exceeds Production Milestone

Press Release

February 5, 2013

Utility Trailer Manufacturing Company, a manufacturer of refrigerated trailers and a leading manufacturer of dry freight vans, flatbeds, and Tautliner curtainsided trailers, announced that it has exceeded a production milestone, manufacturing more than 200,000 reefer trailers at the company’s Clearfield, Utah, manufacturing facilities.

Utility’s first Clearfield plant opened in 1965 and closed in 2001. A new larger facility adjacent to the area opened in January 2000 and has recently reached the milestone of producing its 100,000th reefer trailer. The 100,000th reefer trailer was produced for Utility’s longtime customer, Stevens Transport from Dallas, Texas.

Combining the production from both the old and new Clearfield manufacturing plants, Utility has exceeded the milestone of producing more 200,000 reefer-trailers in Utah.

“We opened the new facility in Utah specifically for our No.1 selling 3000R refrigerated trailer. The design and layout of the larger facility accommodated the advanced tooling specific to the 3000R,” said Steve Smith, Utility’s Clearfield Plant manager. “From 178,000 square feet of space to the larger facility, which exceeds 500,000 square feet, we’ve increased production efficiencies with a continuous production flow by expanding and adding a 2nd assembly line for high-option trailers.” With these efficiencies and expansions, Utility’s Clearfield facility has nearly tripled the production capacity. The plant is now one of the largest trailer manufacturing facilities in the world.

Utility currently operates five trailer-manufacturing facilities across the United States. The Clearfield, Utah, and Marion, Virginia, plants manufacture Utility’s No.1 selling refrigerated trailer. Utility dry vans are manufactured in Glade Spring, Virginia, and Paragould, Arkansas. Utility also has a facility in Enterprise, Alabama, that manufactures flatbeds and Tautliners.
