The company says the investment was made in an effort to stay ahead of industry demand in the trailer segment.

The Whitney machine will be coupled with a new hydraulic press feed line, which will be installed in November.

When complete, the company says the project will increase Cottrell’s sheet metal processing capacity to 12 trailers per day.
