CITY OF INDUSTRY, Calif. — It was party time for the Utility Trailer Manufacturing Company, as the company celebrated its 100th year in business.

The company invited over 600 guests, including dealers and customers, to an event held at La Quinta Resort and Club. Along with dancing, partying, golfing and watching performances, guests got to look back at the history of the company and look forward into its future.

“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,” said Craig Bennett, adding that those in attendance were given a special commemorative 100th anniversary book detailing Utility Trailer Manufacturing Company’s past milestones.

They also had the opportunity to see new concepts and designs in the Utility Technology Pavilion.

“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,” said Stephen Bennett, vice-president for utility. 

“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,” said Craig Bennett, senior vice-president sales and marketing for utility.
