Simple Beginnings

We Built Them First.
We Build Them to Last®.

Over 100 years ago, two brothers set their minds to build the very best trailer, and a tradition of innovation and a discipline of excellence began.

The World’s Leading Producer of Strong, Light Weight Trailers®.

We are an innovative manufacturer of dry freight vans, refrigerated vans and flatbeds. We remain the largest producer of refrigerated vans and one of the largest trailer manufacturer in the United States.

Advanced Manufacturing

There is only one standard at Utility — excellence. This is why Utility is The Reliable Choice®.

Quality built into each trailer begins with an idea. Then that idea gets designed and tested, re-designed and re-tested until it is proven. Then and only then do we put it into production. This is how we stand firm in our belief that a Utility trailer performs to a higher level of dependability and performance.

Advanced Manufacturing


Innovation means nothing unless it leads to trailers that perform better and provide more value for the customer. Utility Trailer Manufacturing Company has a history of firsts that have benefited our customers day in and day out. We pursue technologies and test them on our test track in order to make our trailers, lighter, stronger and better. When you take a closer look, you and your business will appreciate the effort we make to create the real Utility difference.

Utility Stewardship

Privately owned and family run, our priority is to build a better company for future generations, including our employees. This ideal goes beyond simply making better trailers. It extends to how we care for our environment as well as how we treat everyone who works with us. Sustainability makes sense and we are committed to caring for tomorrow, today.
