AEM member Felling Trailers, along with its team members, will be recognized as an industry leader for their contributions to the local community and manufacturing industry.

It will highlight Felling’s initiative to provide high-level training through their weld training center, state-of-the-art powder coat facility, and throughout their plant. From our humble start as a small midwestern welding shop to one of North America’s industry leaders in innovative transportation solutions, this event will also be a celebration of the company’s 50th anniversary.

This tour serves as a uniquely valuable opportunity to reflect on the people who have made that happen and where we want to take things over the next half-century," says Brenda Jennissen, CEO. “The ‘Manufacturing Express’ celebrates our team members and community while highlighting our contribution to American manufacturing and the U.S. economy,” adds Patrick Jennissen, vice president  of Sales & Marketing. “Felling Trailers is a strong supporter of AEM’s grassroots I Make America campaign that advocates for policies that support manufacturing jobs in America. It’s an opportunity to invite our team members, policymakers, and journalists to come together to learn about and celebrate Felling Trailers, Inc. and our role in driving innovation, economic growth, and job creation in the region for fifty years.”

Those invited to the event will have the opportunity to learn about and tour Felling’s new weld training center and powder coat facility, Felling states.

The “AEM Manufacturing Express” will make its tenth stop on its national tour at Felling Trailers, Inc. The tour covers more than 20 states with 80 stops at equipment manufacturers to showcase the cutting-edge technology and innovations that power modern equipment, as well as the innovative technologies, processes, people, and products revolutionizing this industry across America.

“We are thrilled to be joining with so many community leaders and supporters of Felling Trailers, Inc. for this amazing opportunity to highlight the importance of American off-highway equipment manufacturing in Sauk Centre, Minn., on July 16, 2024,” says Megan Tanel, AEM President. “The ‘AEM Manufacturing Express’ is more than just a bus tour; it is an opportunity to tell the stories of the men and women of our industry in Sauk Centre, Minn., and highlight how their grit, determination, and can-do spirit has been pivotal to the American way of life."  

While the event will help spotlight Felling Trailers, the manufacturing industry, and policies supporting manufacturers, it is fundamentally a celebration with games, food, and a chance to win prizes, the company adds.
