Our Building's History

Eagle Trailer Co. inhabits two buildings on it's property. The main building was constructed in 1970 for use as a baking supply company. The tower was used to store grain bins that were filled when, the now removed, train line would pass by.

This past Fall a strong wind during a storm lifted the roof of the tower off and set it back down resulting in a large crack that ran the perimeter of the roofline. As a result, our building profile is changing. The bins have been removed, the pit they sat in filled in, and the floor leveled. Our paint booth, which is the largest in the region, will be moved there to make more room on the floor for trailer assembly.

We'll update this post as the work gets done. Stay tuned!

Aluminum floor plate, that extends along the sides, is isolated from the steel to prevent corrosion in the coming years. The two compartments along side the black aluminum tool box are for blowers. 

The trailer has a 5' tall Easi-Lift gate complete with slam latches.The gate has extra uprights to support their heavy machines.  This trailer is expected to last even longer than the first.  .
