Utility Trailer is opening a new, dual-use facility on US Highway 57 in Eagle Pass TX.
The company’s Houston group built the “state-of-the-art” dealer facility on 40 acres of land located only three miles away from its new refrigerated trailer factory in Piedras Negras, Coahuila, Mexico.
“This strategic location is an ideal setting to store new trailers and get them ready for pick-up,” said Steve Bennett, vice president of Utility Trailer. “In the near future, it will become a center for transportation, receiving and accounting management. It will also be the receiving point for customer-furnished materials and other production materials.”
The 51,000-square-foot parts warehouse and 20-bay facility is a full-service location, offering new and used trailers, parts and service.
“We are proud to be building a facility that will optimize service for our local customers,” said Jonny Loring Jr, president of Utility Trailer Sales Southeast Texas. “Our Eagle Pass dealership will also offer a host of services to other Utility dealers and customers, including Carrier installations, lift gates, decals and tracking devices.”
Directly adjacent to the Houston group, Utility is developing 130 acres for new trailer parking and warehouse operations to support the Piedras Negras factory. The first phase is now open for new trailer pick-up.
Utility plans to hold a grand opening for the Eagle Pass facility April 10.
“This new development is an ideal location for us,” added Mr. Loring. "It’s proximity to the Mexican border enables us to better serve our growing customer base in the Texas market place. We’re also pleased that it will provide support for Utility Trailer Manufacturing’s plant operations in Piedras Negras.”
