MAC Trailer acquires Bullet Trailer
[dropca]M[/dropcap]AC Trailer Enterprises recently expanded its aluminum dump trailer product line with the purchase of Bullet Trailer. This facility now is formally MAC Bullet Manufacturing, currently located at 410 Factory Road in Sunnyside, Wash.
The $2 million expansion includes 3.92 acres, an almost 25,000-square-foot leased facility and office space, all necessary equipment, and the registered trademark (No. 1,622,364) for Bullet Trailer.
“This expansion is a crucial move toward continued growth in the western region,” said Bill McKenzie, president of sales for MAC Trailer Enterprises. “The Bullet (Bullet Trailer) will complement our already diversified dump trailer applications. We have added production facilities in Texas, Oklahoma, Oregon, Montana, and now Washington to continuously reduce transportation costs and effectively support our western dealers.”
MAC Trailer was founded in 1992 by Michael A. Conny when he started a one-man operation repairing wrecked trailers in a single-bay garage. MAC Trailer has since grown to manufacture custom trailers including dump, flatbed and transfer trailers; straight truck bodies; dry bulk pneumatic tanks; as well as liquid tank trailers. MAC Trailer now encompasses more than 1.5 million square feet of facilities, on campuses totaling almost 600 acres.
The MAC Bullet also has a lengthy history dating back more than 40 years when it was first created in Billings, Mont.
“This aluminum bottom dump trailer has been a trusted product in the industry and MAC Trailer will continue to maintain the same quality, efficiency, and performance Bullet customers have come to know and respect since the 70s,” said Jeff Sheen, director of operations at MAC Trailer Enterprises.
MAC Trailer plans to maintain manufacturing in Sunnyside, with immediate intentions of expanding production in the coming months at their Haslet, Texas facility.
MAC Trailer Enterprises consists of 11 total production facilities and is consistently bringing new employment opportunities across the seven states in which it operates, the company said. The enterprise includes MAC Trailer, MAC LTT and Beall Manufacturing.
“All MAC Trailer Enterprise companies and facilities are actively hiring for full-time positions with exceptional benefits,” said Dennis Postiy, corporate vice president of MAC Trailer Enterprises. “It has been said time and time again, we build great products because of great people. We encourage anyone located in the seven states we encompass to join the nation’s leading manufacturer of trailers and become one of the greats. We believe great people deserve great pay and great benefits, so we offer nothing less. Our new location in Sunnyside, Wash., intends to add five to seven additional employees to keep up with the increasing industry demand, so we encourage our local community members to apply.”
