Stoughton Trailers built its 50,000th dry van trailer for UPS in mid-August at its Stoughton, Wisconsin, facility.
Officials and executives from both UPS and Stoughton participated in a virtual meeting to mark the event, which also celebrated 25 years of collaboration between the two companies.
“UPS strives to be the most dependable logistics company, providing businesses faster and more efficient connections to their customers,” said Bill Brentar, senior director of maintenance and engineering for UPS. “We’re proud to partner with Stoughton to deliver this reliability to meet our customers’ expectations.”
Representatives of key component manufacturers were also on hand for the virtual event, including Ancra, Bendix, General Tires, Havco, Hutchens, Jost, Meritor, Phillips, Ridge Corp., Transglobal, Truck-Lite, and Wabco.
“This is an important milestone in Stoughton’s history, illustrating our 59-year commitment to building quality trailers that deliver superior performance,” said Bob Wahlin, president. “At Stoughton, our people take great pride in our relationship with UPS.”
