Talbert Manufacturing has acquired Ferree Trailers adding the company’s specialty trailer lines that weren’t previously in Talbert’s own lineup, along with gaining Ferree’s manufacturing facility.

“Ferree is a strong complement to the Talbert Line,” said Andy Tanner, president of Talbert. “Like Talbert, Ferree is known for high quality trailers and a strong commitment to the customer.”

Ferree’s line of products include detachable, fixed and folding gooseneck trailers, tag-a-longs, and specialty trailers for logging, pole, and crane boom trailers. The company’s 60,000 square foot manufacturing facility is located in Liberty, N.C.

“The new facility in North Carolina not only gives us the viability to increase production and reduce lead times, but also provides us a distribution point to access customers with reduced freight costs and delivery times,” said Greg Smith, vice president of sales and marketing at Talbert. “In the trailer industry, that is huge.”

Talbert Manufacturing builds custom heavy haul trailers and is based in Rensselaer, Ind.
