Utility Trailer Manufacturing Co. announced this week its Paragould, Ark., manufacturing facility has produced its 200,000th trailer, a 4000D-X Composite dry van.
Utility’s Paragould plant marked an important production milestone when Target Corporate purchased its 200,000th trailer. Target received the 4000D-X Composite dry van that includes a Target graphic decal on the trailer, and standard features such as 80K flush steel logistics posts and Utility’s aerodynamic side skirt, the company says.
“This is a special milestone for Utility Trailer Manufacturing Company, and the 715 dedicated employees at this plant. We are also grateful for Target’s continued trust in us. As the new Plant Manager, I look forward to many more successes from our team for years to come,” says John Oliver, Utility’s plant manager in Paragould.
“We have had a wonderful business partnership with Utility since 2012. We understand how important this is for Utility’s Paragould plant, and we are honored to receive this milestone trailer,” adds Ryan Magyar, lead equipment engineer, Target Corporate.
Utility’s Paragould plant opened in 1994 and expanded in 2004 with a second line. Besides Paragould, Utility also produces dry vans at their Glade Spring, Va., plant.
