CITY OF INDUSTRY, Calif., May 10, 2016 -¬ Utility Trailer Manufacturing Company, the industry’s largest manufacturer of refrigerated trailers and a leading manufacturer of dry freight vans, flatbeds, and Tautliner® curtainsided trailers is pleased to announce that Utility Tri-State, Inc. has opened its newest dealer location in North Little Rock, Arkansas.
“We expanded an existing location with a larger building and added more acreage,” said John Belie, Vice President of Utility Tri-State. “Our growing business in Little Rock and central Arkansas challenged us to build this full service location in order to meet the needs of both existing and future customers.”
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. 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, Oklahoma, Utility Tri-State is a regional full service Utility dealership with 6 facilities that are located in Tulsa and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma; and in Texarkana, Alma, Siloam Springs and North Little Rock, Arkansas.
The new 22,500 square foot full service facility is situated on 8.84 acres of land, and is located at 12401 Eanes Rd., North Little Rock, AR 72117, on Highway 40 just west of the Valentine Rd. exit (Exit 161).
