By Laura Hatton20 November 2014
Custom heavy haul trailer manufacturer Talbert Manufacturing, based in Rensselaer, Indiana, USA, has acquired Ferree Trailers, in North Carolina, USA.
Ferree Trailers is a manufacturer of detachable, fixed and folding gooseneck trailers. The product range also includes a number of specialty trailers. Manufacturing has a 60,000 square foot facility in Liberty, North Carolina and a distribution centre on the East Coast.
Andy Tanner, Talbert president, said, “Ferree is a strong complement to the Talbert line. Like Talbert, Ferree is known for high-quality trailers and a strong commitment to the customer. The acquisition of Ferree Trailers provides us with a wider product offering to serve our customer needs and a large, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility with quality people that offers tremendous opportunity.”
Greg Smith, vice president of sales and marketing, said, “A significant number of Talbert trailers are sold up and down the East Coast. This new facility in North Carolina not only gives us the ability to increase production and reduce lead times, but also provides us a distribution point to access customers with reduced freight costs and delivery times. In the trailer industry, that is huge.”
