Utility Trailer Manufacturing Company announced the opening of a new, dual-use facility located on Route 57 in the city of Eagle Pass, Texas.
The facility was built on 40 acres of land, ideally located to service the new Utility refrigerated trailer factory in Piedras Negras, Coahuila Mexico, just three miles down the road.
“This strategic location is an ideal setting to store new trailers and get them ready for pick-up,” said Steve Bennett, vice president of Utility Trailer. “In the near future it will become a center for transportation, receiving and accounting management. It will also be the receiving point for customer furnished materials and other production materials.”
The 51,000 square-foot parts warehouse and a 20-bay facility is also a full-service facility, offering new and used trailers, parts & service.
“Our Eagle Pass dealership will also offer a host of services to other Utility dealers and customers, including Carrier installations, lift gates, decals, and tracking devices,” said Jonny Loring, Jr., president of Utility Trailer Sales Southeast Texas. "It’s proximity to the Mexican border enables us to better serve our growing customer base in the Texas market place. We’re also pleased that it will provide support for Utility Trailer Manufacturing’s plant operations in Piedras Negras.”
Directly adjacent to the Houston group, also on historic route 57, Utility Trailer Manufacturing Company has a 130-acre parcel under development, for new trailer parking and warehouse operations, to support the new Utility factory just over the border in Piedras, Negras Mexico. The first phase of the parking facility is now open for new trailer pick-up.
