Successful Dealer Staff March 10, 2014

Utility­Utility Trailer Manufacturing Company recently commemorated its 100th anniversary in La Quinta, Calif.

“To mark 100 years of manufacturing the world’s best trailers, we celebrated with customers, dealers, and vendors from all over the Americas at the biggest and largest event ever in the history of our company,” says Craig Bennett, senior vice president, sales and marketing for Utility.

“Over 600 guests attended the event at La Quinta Resort & Club. At the event, dealers and customers had the opportunity to attend several business meetings that examined the past, present and future of Utility. Additionally, guests were able to play golf, participate in special activities, and attend dinner parties with special guest performances.”

Utility vendor partners also participated in the celebration by showcasing concept and future innovations in the Utility Technology Pavilion, the company says.

“Our partners gave our guests an exclusive first look at some of their new products, along with some products that are debuting at this year’s Mid-America Trucking Show,” says Stephen Bennett, vice president for Utility.

Utility says attendees were treated to decade-themed parties and videos that chronicled the history of Utility.

“We are America’s oldest trailer manufacturer and we’ve archived thousands of old photographs, videos, 16MM films, and other special memorabilia of our 100-year history,” says Craig Bennett.

Guests were also given a special commemorative 100th Anniversary book honoring Utility’s pioneering spirit and rich history of building innovative trailers.

“We want to thank our vendor partners, dealers, customers, and employees for making this celebration a huge success, and we look forward to the next 100 years of innovation,” says Craig Bennett.

Utility’s 100th anniversary celebration will continue throughout the year with many other events being held for employees, customers and dealers, the company says.
