Trailer Division Meeting at Wells Cargo a success


Written By: Steve Whittington, Trailer Division ManagerFeb 15, 2013

On Thursday February 7 the Flaman Trailers division team toured the Wells Cargo plant in Ogden, Utah.  We toured all areas of the more than 100,000 square foot facility. The team was impressed by the quality control processes at every step and the craftsmanship apparent in the build process. 

Wells Cargo staff provided training on all their product lines: Fast Trac, Road Force, and the Wells line. In addition to the standard lines, specialized training was provided on Concession Trailers, Job Shack Trailers, Mobile Restroom Trailers and Wells Cargo’s impressive custom trailer capability.  Last but not least, the Wells Cargo folks were great hosts!
 
The second day of the meeting was held at the beautiful Ogden Eccles Conference Center in downtown Ogden.  All of Flaman’s main manufacturers (Trailtech, Southland Trailer Corp, Diamond C, Aluma and ATC Trailers) were present to update the team on model improvements and changes for the coming year.
 
To cap off the meetings Friday evening, we headed to the Energy Solutions Arena and took in a Utah Jazz basketball game against the Chicago Bulls.  All in all, the meeting provided a great learning opportunity that will allow us to better serve you, our customers.

So You Want a Concession Trailer?


Written By: Steve Whittington, Vice President of Marketing and CommunicationsJun 25, 2012

At Flaman trailers we have offered concession trailers for some time. With the addition of the Wells Cargo line, we can really offer quality concession trailers from a company that knows the industry requirements.  We do receive requests for quotes for a concession trailer and they range from pointed requests such as “How much?” to more detailed inquiries.

The fact of the matter is when it comes to a concession trailer purchase, it should always be a detailed inquiry. However, you need to know what questions you should be asking prior to contacting a Trailer Sales specialist.
