The advantages Southland Trailer Corp. has over other facilities is our in-house fabrication capabilities which allow us to “think outside the box” when designing or improving our products. Minimal outsourcing mean tighter control over production runs and the capabilities to implement customer feedback immediately during our prototyping phase.
We purchase material in bulk. This allows us to fabricate and store “kits” in-house and streamlines the production run. When taking out the middleman, we have an increased communication between the project manager, engineer, and fab shop which has improved our product quality.
Teamwork is an essential element of STC operations. Even though we have large facilities and over 100 employees, interdepartmental cooperation has enhanced our designs, decreased lead times, and increased production without getting other vendors involved.
