Utility Trailer Manufacturing Co. has produced its 200,000th refrigerated trailer at the company’s Clearfield, Utah, manufacturing plant.
The trailer was produced for Stevens Transport. It was the 100,000th trailer produced at the “new” Clearfield plant, which opened in 2000. That plant replaced the original facility in the town, which opened in 1965 and closed in 2001 after building its 100,000th unit.
“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 sq. ft. of space to the larger facility which exceeds 500,000 sq. ft., we’ve increased production efficiencies with a continuous production flow by expanding and adding a second assembly line for high-option trailers.”
