CITY OF INDUSTRY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Utility Trailer Manufacturing Company, the industry’s largest manufacturer of refrigerated trailers and a leading manufacturer of dry freight vans, flatbeds, and Tautliner® curtainsided trailers, is pleased to announce that Utility Trailer Sales of Arizona has opened its new full-service dealer location in Tolleson, Arizona.
“We outgrew our old facility, the one we had operated in for the past 60 years. Our productivity was suffering due to the space constraints, and it was difficult for our customers to access,” said George Cravens, President of Utility Trailer Sales of Arizona. “Our customers deserve our very best and this new location enables us to deliver the kind of service they deserve and that we demand of ourselves. It is important to us to offer the best possible customer experience, provide a positive and inviting work environment for our 54 employees as well as enhance our productivity in every aspect of our business.”
The new Tolleson facility sits next to Interstate 10 between two major north/south thoroughfares. A truck bypass is soon to be built and will run a few miles east of the new location. “Since we back right up to Interstate 10, the new site is very easy to access. Plus, we have neighbors that will add value to our place as a service destination – including Inland Kenworth, Love’s Travel Center and a soon to be built Blue Beacon Truck Wash.”
Four times larger than its old site, the new 61,000 square foot full-service facility offers many amenities that include a customer lounge with Wi-Fi, gated security, and a separate driveway for autos vs. trucks. The new facility is situated on 14 acres of land and is located at 8710 W. Roosevelt Street, Tolleson, AZ 85353. The expanded facility has a 10,500 square foot Office on the ground floor, a 3,000 square foot Office/Training Center on the second floor, and a 2,500 square foot Parts Showroom. The 15,000 square foot Parts Warehouse houses the largest selection of trailer parts in Arizona.
The Service Department comprises 38,000 square feet of workspace with 20 service bays available inside and 10 service bays available outside. Highly complicated repairs can be done utilizing the latest technology and heavy-duty equipment - including a state-of-the-art frame straightening rack, laser alignment, temperature controlled foam-in-place insulation booth, and two 5-ton cranes. Fast Lane expedited repair service and a wash bay are also available.
