Utility opens CBNA TRU plant in Texas

New facility in Eagle Pass will support the final assembly of Cargobull North America ultra-low emission transport refrigeration units.

Utility Trailer Manufacturing recently opened its new Cargobull North America (CBNA) assembly plant and warehouse in Eagle Pass, Texas.

As Utility Trailer and CBNA—a partnership between Utility and European trailer manufacturer Schmitz Cargobull—continue to roll out new products, the additional facility will help the joint venture boost production and support cutting-edge innovations, the company said. Adjacent to the Utility Trailer Southeast Texas dealer location in Eagle Pass this new Utility and CBNA facility will focus on the final assembly operation of CBNA transport refrigeration units (TRUs). The plant also will work on final assembly of remote evaporators, solar panels, telematics hardware, and other essential TRU parts.

The facility also will serve as a warehouse for storing CBNA and Utility materials and parts.

“It’s an exciting time for Utility’s production efforts,” Steve Bennett, Utility president and COO, said in a news release. “The plant and warehouse are centrally located to best serve most of North America.

“Utility dealers can order CBNA parts directly with rapid response.”

Along with the network of six Aurora Parts distribution centers, the new Eagle Pass facility will further improve the accessibility and availability of CBNA parts and accessories, the company said.

The Cargobull 625 Hybrid (single-temp) and 655MT Hybrid (multi-temp) ultra-low emission TRUs are factory-installed options exclusively available on Utility’s 3000R refrigerated trailers.
