Utility Trailer's manufacturing plant in Paragould, Ark., was awarded the Plant Safety Award by the Truck Trailer Manufacturers Association.

The Paragould facility, established in 1993, was identified in 2007 by TTMA as having the best overall safety record of all manufacturing facilities identified in the association's Category A ranking.

This achievement means that Utility Trailer employees in Paragould performed more than 750,000 work hours in 2007 with limited injuries and illnesses. The milestone was reached by the 450 employees who work at Utility Trailer's dry freight trailer assembly plant in Paragould.

"As a company and at all five Utility Trailer manufacturing plants, we emphasize disciplined behavior, safe work processes and employee ownership of safety," says David Neighbors, plant manager at the Paragould facility. "Achieving this annual award for safety performance is significant, but what is truly impressive are the actions and attitudes of every single person at out plant to work safely, year-in and year-out."

The Paragould manufacturing plant also received the annual TTMA Plant Safety Award (Category A) in 2006, 2005 and 2003.
