Wallace Trailers signs on as newest Polar King Mobile dealer

Feb. 1, 2021
Third-generation family business in Tennessee now offering North America’s ‘first affordable small refrigerated trailer’

Wallace Trailers recently became a dealer for newly formed Polar King Mobile (PKM), a Polar King business unit focused on providing what it says is North America’s first affordable small refrigerated trailer solution.

Wallace Trailers, based in Franklin TN, has been in business since 1932 and serves a diverse variety of customers based in Nashville, Memphis, Chattanooga, Knoxville and other areas of the state, as well as northern Georgia and Atlanta.

“We are a third-generation family business and one of our core values is taking pride in outfitting our customers with the perfect trailer specifically designed for their business needs,” said William Wallace, vice president of Wallace Trailers.

“Polar King Mobile allows Wallace Trailers to serve a market we have never touched before. We see the value and demand for mobile refrigeration in our market and the partnership with Polar King Mobile now allows us to expand our market.”

Polar King Mobile provides 8- to 16-foot small refrigerated trailers.

“The addition of Wallace Trailers helps expand the reach of the PKM line in Tennessee and nearby states,” said Christian Aitken, Polar King Mobile executive vice president. “Our products complement those of Polar King and Polar Leasing by providing a long absent solution to the marketplace. We are excited about the opportunity Wallace Trailers brings to make these products more widely known and available to customers.”

Polar King Mobile’s 110-volt refrigerated trailers are designed and engineered for outdoor and over-the-road use. Polar King’s 100% seamless fiberglass design provides a continuous surface with rounded insulated corners to promote a sanitary environment. The durable, NSF-approved non-slip flooring system reduces the risk of slips and falls. Since the unit is seamless, it can quickly be cleaned with a hose and there’s no risk of damage to the insulation. According to Polar King Mobile, the unit will look factory new with regular care and cleaning.

PKM does not sell direct to the public.

“We are creating a national network of value-added resellers by recruiting the best trailer distributors from the North American Trailer Dealers Association,” Aitken said. “A national network that includes dealers such as Refrigeration Depot will provide the underpinning for fast, professional and knowledgeable customer service.”
