Utility Trailer Manufacturing Co., the trucking industry’s largest manufacturer of refrigerated trailers and a leading manufacturer of dry freight vans, flatbeds and curtainsided trailers, has opened Utility Trailer Sales of Oregon’s new dealer location in Redmond, Ore.
“This has been a vision of my mother, Pat Hilsinger, who has been president of Utility Trailer Sales of Oregon for the past 10 years,” said Elizabeth Gallardo, general manager of the new Redmond facility. “For 30 years, our Clackamas location has served the I-5 corridor and the Portland metro region, but we recognized a void for trailer service in the Eastern and Central Oregon areas.”
Utility Trailer Sales of Oregon will operate its Redmond dealership as Utility Trailer Sales of Central Oregon, LLC. “We have a number of customers in the Central Oregon area and we look forward to strengthening those relationships, while building new ones with businesses who use the US 97 regularly. We are particularly excited about our new 65-foot-long paint booth, because there are no booths of this size for trailers or tractors in this area,” added Gallardo.
Located on 825 N.E. Hemlock, the 27,000-square-foot facility is a full-service dealership selling new and used trailers. In addition to the paint booth, this new facility also houses a large parts retail area, and eight service bays.
