The milestone 4000D-X Composite dry van unit with aerodynamic side skirts was purchased by long-time business partner Target Corp.

Utility Trailer Manufacturing’s Paragould, Ark., manufacturing facility recently produced its 200,000th trailer, a 4000D-X Composite dry van.

The milestone trailer was purchased by Target Corporation. It included a brand-specific, graphic decal, and standard features such as 80K flush steel logistics posts and Utility’s aerodynamic side skirt.

“We have had a wonderful business partnership with Utility since 2012,” said Ryan Magyar, lead equipment engineer at Target. “We understand how important this is for Utility’s Paragould plant, and we are honored to receive this milestone trailer.”

Utility’s Paragould plant opened in 1994 and expanded in 2004 with a second line. Besides Paragould, Utility—the industry’s largest manufacturer of refrigerated trailers—also produces dry vans at its Glade Spring, Va., plant.

“This is a special milestone for Utility Trailer Manufacturing Company, and the 715 dedicated employees at this plant,” said John Oliver, Utility’s plant manager in Paragould. “We are also grateful for Target’s continued trust in us. As the new plant manager, I look forward to many more successes from our team for years to come.”
