Utility celebrates 50 years of building trailers in Utah

Sept. 9, 2015

Utility Trailer Manufacturing Company is commemorating 50 years of production at its plant in Clearfield, Utah. 

When the Clearfield plant started in 1965, it produced a mix of dry-freight,  furniture vans, and reefer trailers.   But when Utility introduced its 3000R refrigerated van in 1999, specific tooling was needed, leading the company to move and expand into a new and larger building near the original plant. Today, Clearfield is one of the largest trailer manufacturing facilities in the world.  It employs 1,160 individuals and has earned numerous safety awards from Liberty Mutual for its safe work practices.

“Our plant has prided itself in producing quality trailers throughout the years, and we look forward to another 50 years of continued improvement while maintaining the same emphasis on quality, safety and efficiency,” said Todd Smith, plant manager.
