US Liner Company offering ‘factory-second’ trailer side skirts

Feb. 19, 2020
OEM supplier’s first warehouse sale aimed at clearing space, saving fleets, repair facilities money on replacement parts

US Liner Company is holding its first sale of side skirt replacement panels, which it’s offering for less than the cost of OEM replacements.

As a manufacturer of glass-reinforced polymer shields and panels used by many top OEM side skirt manufacturers, these factory seconds are structurally sound but have small surface cosmetic irregularities that could not be sold at the OEM level, the company said.

“Over time, we manufacture a number of skirt panels that cannot pass the rigorous quality standards required of our OEM customers,” a company sales team representative said. “Our internal quality assurance team may reject panels due to minor surface imperfections or slight irregularities, but they still maintain structural strength inherent to first-quality panels.”

Because side skirts regularly suffer from minor blemishes and “bumps and bruises” during normal over-the-road use, these factory seconds offer fleet managers and maintenance and repair shops the opportunity to replace severely damaged panels with like-new seconds at “a fraction” of the cost, US Liner maintained.

“We’ve stored these blemished panels in our warehouse,” the Company said. “And we decided to clear out this limited inventory to free up space and provide fleet operators with a real cost-saving opportunity.”

These genuine limited-quantity US Liner factory seconds are available in traditional sizes for as low as $49.95 each.

“Fleet owners and maintenance facilities have told us they’re looking for ways to reduce repair costs, and this program will help them improve their bottom line,” said Jeff Meek, vice president of sales for US Liner. “The trucking industry is presently suffering from challenging market conditions and profits are under pressure.

“We believe this factory-seconds sale is an easy way to help fleet managers achieve meaningful cost reductions without sacrificing performance.”
