Big Tex Trailers has acquired Jacobsen Trailers of Fowler, California, which began in Selma, California, when family member Ernest Jacobsen started building trailers during the 1930s.
Gene Jacobsen, son of Ernest, worked in the original factory and in time opened Jacobsen Trailers in Fowler. As the owner and continued to see the need to help farmers transport their cotton, grapes and other produce to market and was grateful for their business.
Fowler is located in the heart of central California, also known as the agricultural hub of the state and country. Each year Jacobsen builds hundreds of BIN trailers for agricultural use; over the road utility trailers with everything from tilt beds to dump. As well as beavertail trailers, flatbed trailers, gooseneck and fifth wheel models from 4,000 lbs. up to 50,000 lbs. GVWR.
The key to Jacobsen Trailers success has been diversification. When economic times have been tough, Jacobsen has sold and manufactured a variety of trailers and components, as opposed to selling only one product.
Originated in 1982, Big Tex Trailers is known for its heavy-duty, high-quality trailers and has been blessed with continue growth.
Big Tex Trailers manufacturers an expansive lineup of ATV trailers, open auto haulers, dump, flatbeds, landscape and gooseneck models. They also manufacture a lineup of single axle, tandem axle, tilt trailers, utility trailers and more.
