Utility Trailer Manufacturing Co. nears milestone

Jason Cannon January 2, 2013

The 98-year-old Utility Trailer Manufacturing Co. is closing in on its centennial celebration.

The company founded by brothers H.C. and Walter Bennett in 1914 is poised to welcome its fourth generation of family members into the fold, making it the oldest privately-owned trailer company doing business in North America today.

In December, Utility was slated to produce its 100,000th reefer trailer at its manufacturing facility in Clearfield, Utah – one of 200,000 total units produced there.
