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 has announced that Craftsmen Utility Trailer has completed the development of its new facility in Davenport, IA.   

“We acquired this location in 2015 in order to better serve our customers,” said Lou Helmsing, President of Craftsmen Utility Trailer. “The facility that we were leasing from the prior owner was very small and did not allow any room for growth, so we decided to build a new facility that would offer a much improved experience for our customers. We are also excited to show off our new spacious facility at our Open House planned for later this year.”

The Davenport facility is located on 14 acres of land, next to two truck stops and near several truck dealers with space for trailer parking. The lot can accommodate 300 trailers and showcases new and used Utility 3000R reefers, 4000D-X Composite, 4000AE Combo Flatbeds and other specialty trailers.

The 25,500 square foot facility includes a Driver’s Waiting Room, a 4,000-square foot Parts Warehouse & Showroom, and a Service Center with 12 Service Bays.

“Our Service Department is open on two shifts, offering both Express Service and Mobile Service. Our fleet of fully-equipped service trucks are ready to provide emergency road service and on-site repair,” added Helmsing.
