H&H Trailers, a division of Novae Corp., has announced an expansion of its manufacturing operations with the addition of 50,000 square feet of production space to the facility in Red Oak, Iowa.
Since the acquisition of H&H Trailers by Novae Corp. in January of 2017, the Iowa plants in Clarinda have been systematically reorganized and de-bottlenecked to provide needed capacity for growth and improvement in overall responsiveness.
Novae Corp. has invested in upgrading the Red Oak facility over recent months, and the plant will run as a fully integrated trailer manufacturing plant, from weld to paint to final assembly. Trailer production is scheduled to be under way by the end of January, and the plant is currently hiring both skilled and unskilled labor positions in welding, powder coating, and assembly.
“Demand for the H&H Trailer brand has continued to outpace the growth of the overall utility trailer market. This expansion is necessary for H&H to stay ahead of the demand curve and to provide our dealers with the customer service and response time they need to support their businesses” according to Troy Hanni, General Manager for Iowa Operations.
Novae Corp. is a privately held company that was founded in 1995 and entered the trailer segment in the year 2000. Novae Corp. is one of the fastest-growing companies in the trailer industry over the past decade and has consistently been in the Inc. 5000 list of America’s fastest-growing private companies.
