Utility plant grows to meet reefer demand
Apr 5, 2006 11:55 AM, from staff and wire reports
Utility Trailer Manufacturing Co announced that its Marion VA reefer plant expansion is ready to meet demand for its 3000R reefer.
Encompassing 90,000 square feet and incorporating seven more acres of land, the Marion plant now totals 487,000 square feet dedicated to reefer production. Adding a fourth Utility-proprietary foam mandrel, the $18 million expansion incorporates Utility's "Moving Assembly Lines," which result in an improved workflow while enabling a friendly work environment.
The plant enlargement will double the capacity of the reefer plant by the year 2007, and the expansion is expected to add 150 new jobs.
