Utility Trailer Manufacturing Company, manufacturer of refrigerated trailers, dry freight vans, and flatbed trailers, has announced its largest single trailer order purchased by Prime Inc.
Founded in 1970 and based in Springfield MO, Prime is one of the leading refrigerated, flatbed, and tanker carrier trucking services in North America. Its recent purchase of 2,500 Utility 3000R reefer trailers from Utility Trailer Sales of the Ozarks marks a milestone for Utility Trailer Manufacturing: the largest single trailer order in the company’s history.
“Our focus on safety, efficiency, and sustainability were the major factors in this purchase,” said Paul Higgins, director of maintenance for Prime. “Our commitment to these principles is the pinnacle of reasons for our partnership with Utility. It is a privilege to have them as a partner that understands our corporate philosophy.”
Ozark Utility’s partnership with Prime began in 2009 with the purchase of 450 trailers. With the recent order, Prime has now purchased a total of 5,000 Utility reefer trailers from the dealership.
Prime’s 2,500 Utility 3000R trailers will be equipped to provide maximum fuel efficiency and added safety components, which includes Utility’s USS-120A-4 aerodynamic side skirt, optional air disc brakes, and a superior suspension system for increased roll stability.
Utility will build Prime’s reefers in both of its Utah and Virginia factories. For more information about Prime, access www.primeinc.com. Go to www.utilitytrailer.com to learn more about Utility.
