Utility Trailer is expanding its dry van manufacturing plant in Paragould, Ark.

The 22,000-square-foot expansion includes a new modification center that accommodates more customized trailers with complex or multiple options.

Utility estimates that the expansion will result in hiring over 50 additional employees to accommodate the increased production. The modification center has been expanded to include 12 new drive-through trailer bays and an additional employee lunchroom. The full expansion is expected to be finished in late September.

Utility currently operates five trailer manufacturing facilities across the U.S. The Clearfield, Utah and Marion, Va. plants manufacture Utility's 3000R refrigerated trailer. Utility's 4000D-X Composite and 4000D dry van trailers are manufactured in Glade Spring, Va., and Paragould, Ark. Utility also has a facility in Enterprise, Ala., that manufactures flatbeds and Tautliners.
