Universal Trailer Unveils $25 Million-Plus Cargo Trailer Facility

Universal Trailer Corporation unveiled a manufacturing plant in Bristol, Ind., for the production of Wells Cargo and Haulmark cargo trailers. The $25 million-plus facility represents over two years of innovation adapted from the automotive industry to produce lighter and more durable Wells Cargo and Haulmark performance-grade cargo trailers. The new facility will employ over 200 new professionals in an unmatched, work-friendly environment, with modern lighting, shop floor break rooms and numerous other amenities. This represents a significant reinvestment in the business demonstrating Universal Trailer's strong commitment to the industry, its customers and employees. Located on 43 acres in Elkhart County, Ind., the 200,000 square foot facility also features several important trailer industry firsts, such as Universal Trailer's proprietary construction material, intelligent robotic welding for square and true frames; HSLA (high-strength, low-alloy) roll formed steel, double-flanged cross members to minimize road vibrations; frames dripped in paint providing advanced anti-corrosion protection; and automotive fastener technology for perfectly aligned trailer chassis, walls and roof.

Universal Trailer Corporation Celebrates Construction Start of New Manufacturing Facility

Universal Trailer Corporation officially marked the start of construction of an entirely new, 200,000 square-foot, manufacturing plant with a celebration involving public and private officials involved in the project. Last Spring UTC decided to locate the plant in Elkhart County, Indiana, where it has other manufacturing facilities. Various sites around the country had been bidding for the project. Universal Trailer operates a number of plants nationwide. The facility is going up on a 43-acre site adjacent to the Indiana Toll Road (I-80 I-90). The site is being developed for drainage and other necessities that would allow for another 200,000 square feet of expansion in the near future. Pfleging said UTC’s current success and growth trajectory has given it confidence that the timing is right for this kind of investment to succeed and to spur even more growth in terms of additional construction.
