Kentucky Trailer Opens Detroit-Area Service Facility
April 18, 2013
Kentucky Trailer has opened its new 46,000-square-foot service and reconditioning facility at 53000 Grand River Avenue in New Hudson, Mich.
Located 35 miles northwest of downtown Detroit near I-96, the new facility marks the third service and reconditioning location for Kentucky Trailer, in addition to Louisville, Ky., and Los Angeles/Fontana, Ca.
The New Hudson facility is equipped with ten manufacturing bays, CNC brake press and shear, multiple overhead cranes, and two paint booths. Complete paint, repair and reconditioning services are available for trailer and truck bodies regardless of type or brand.
The New Hudson service center is the second Michigan-based operation for Kentucky Trailer. Kentucky Trailer Technologies, located in Walled Lake, Michigan, opened in 2001 and builds highly-specialized mobile expandable trailers and vehicle transporters. The two divisions work in tandem to provide aftermarket service work through Kentucky Trailer-New Hudson and expanded production capacity for Kentucky Trailer Technologies.
"Opening the new service and reconditioning facility fits well with the current and long-term growth objectives projected from the Walled Lake, MI based division, Kentucky Trailer Technologies," says Tom Smiley, Inside Sales Manager at the KTT Division. "This strategic acquisition affords our Walled Lake team the additional production capacity needed to sustain its continued growth."
With approximately 30 technicians at each service facility, customers benefit from OEM quality repair and service work on door and seal applications, LED light conversions, lift gate installation and repair, ABS, tire inflation and auto lubrication systems. Additionally, aerodynamic and corrosion protection improvements and installation are available.
