Lavonia, Georgia – Carry-On Trailer announced today that it has opened a new manufacturing plant in Coburg, Oregon. The plant will be the seventh manufacturing facility owned and operated by Carry-On Trailer.
The 33,000 square foot facility builds enclosed cargo trailers that will be distributed in the western United States and Canada to both existing and new customers. Manufacturing operations take place in a factory once owned by Monaco Coach, which Carry-On acquired in December 2013. The plant will employ more than 50 people when it reaches full production later this year.
John Burgess, President of Carry-On Trailer, said: “Carry-On is excited to take this next step in our continued growth. The Coburg, Oregon facility enables us to serve our growing customer base even more effectively. We are pleased to be part of the Oregon business community and thankful for the incredible support we received from Lane County in acquiring this first-class location.”
Carry-On Trailer operates 7 facilities in 6 states and ships open Utility and Enclosed Cargo Trailers to all 50 states and Canada. Carry-On Trailer is a division of American Trailer Works, which manufactures and distributes trailers exclusively through third-party dealers and customers among brand names such as PJ Trailers and RC Trailers.
