Utility Trailer Manufacturing Co., the industry’s largest manufacturer of refrigerated trailers and a leading manufacturer of dry freight vans, flatbeds, and curtain-sided trailers, said Utility Tri-State Inc. has opened its newest dealer location in North Little Rock, Ark.
The design of the North Little Rock facility is similar to the layout at Utility Tri-State’s Oklahoma City location with some improvements. “We changed some of the materials and made slight modifications to the layout to make the space more functional for both customers and employees,” said John Belie, vice president of Utility Tri-State. “Our customers have been looking forward to our expansion, and we are excited to offer them improved and enhanced services.”
Started in 1975 in Tulsa, Okla., Utility Tri-State is a regional full-service Utility dealership with six facilities that are located in Tulsa and Oklahoma City, Okla.; and in Texarkana, Alma, Siloam Springs and North Little Rock, Ark..
The new 22,500-square-foot facility is situated on 8.84 acres at 12401 Eanes Road in North Little Rock. The expanded facility has an 875-square-foot parts Showroom, a 3,000-square-foot parts warehouse, 3,625 square feet of office space and a 15,000-square-foot service department with 16 service bays — eight inside and eight outside under partial awnings.
