Titan to Build Trailers Overseas

Staff | September 28, 2010

After years of testing the waters in the United Kingdom's haulage industry, Canadian-based Titan Trailers is setting up assembly for the European Union market at a facility near the British seaport of Teesside.

In prominent use throughout North America, Titan's trailers are recognized for their Thinwall extruded aluminum body construction, developed by company president Mike Kloepfer in the mid-1990s. Titan also enjoys a working relationship with Walking Floor self-unloader systems creator Keith Manufacturing.

Titan trailers seen on the roads of Great Britain today were fully manufactured in Canada, then freighted over the Atlantic. However, Kloepfer explains, many of the components on those trailers actually had to make two such trips, since Titan has been importing EU-standard running gear and other parts into the Canadian manufacturing facility to ensure service support would be available locally for British customers.
