We take great pride in our wet paint process, offering options including primer topcoats and zinc-enriched primer topcoats, ensuring optimal protection for each trailer with precise mil thickness. Our state-of-the-art equipment ensures a thorough process, starting with a steel shot blast to clean the steel, followed by a wet polyurethane paint application, and concluding with a 160-degree oven for effective curing.

Our longstanding partnership with suppliers have been instrumental in establishing a seamless and dependable supply chain for material and parts. This collaborative network empowers us to think outside the box during the trailer design process by leveraging our ability to fabricate components internally, thus enabling us to pursue inventive and groundbreaking approaches that redefine the limits of trailer design.

At the finish line, the trailer undergoes various finalization steps such as flooring installation, application of aluminum skin, electrical work, roof mounting, tire assembly, and the application of automotive undercoating.

Our in-house manufacturing handles the complete fabrication process of steel parts, utilizing our state-of-the-art Plasma table for the precise cutting of various small components required for trailer assembly. Additionally, we offer bending, cutting, and binding services for these parts, ensuring comprehensive customization as per specific requirements.

Our highly skilled service technicians thoroughly inspect every aspect of your new trailer, ensuring that all electronics are functioning properly, tailgates are operational, and every bolt is securely fastened. in the rare event that an issue is discovered, we promptly address and resolve it. On average, this comprehensive inspection and testing process typically takes approximately 6 hours, with the duration varying based on the size of the trailer.

Our expert welders are skilled with all types of steel and various widths. Our in-house Brakes, Shears, Plasma Cutter and Punches add to our arsenal, giving us the capability of building and manufacturing to our customer’s needs.

At Southland Trailers, we take immense satisfaction in the meticulous manufacturing process, prioritizing quality craftsmanship, innovative designs, and strict adherence to our specifications.

WHY CHOOSE US

Founded by Monty and Shelly Sailer in 1980, Southland Trailer Corp. is now in the hands of their three sons—Jason, Ryan, and Scott Sailer—who have grown the Lethbridge-based company from about 70 employees in 2012 to more than 500 team members today. Notice how the language has changed over the years from employee to team member, contributing to the company’s culture and core values.

At Southland Trailers, we are committed to hard work, open communication, a positive attitude, calculated risk-taking, continuous improvements, and leading with humility/respect for every individual. We understand that these values set us apart from the competition and allow us to build trailers that meet the evolving needs of our customers.

As one of Canada’s largest trailer manufacturing companies, Southland Trailers understands that our success is not just about the product. It’s about our people. Our plant manager, T.J. Dow, captures this attitude: “it’s people, processes and then product. And if you work that way, it doesn’t matter what you’re building – you can be building trailers, pencils or rocket ships – and as long as you put your people first, the product will always be amazing, because the people care.” This commitment to our team members fosters a sense of respect and appreciation, which we believe is crucial for our continued growth and success.

Our commitment to LEAN manufacturing techniques and innovative designs allows us to build trailers that are not only reliable and durable but also efficient and easy to use. One thing that sets us apart is our direct access to owners and management. By maintaining close relationships with our customers and partners, we can better understand their needs and deliver exceptional service and support.

Our in-house engineering team and vertical integration allow us to design and build faster with cutting-edge technology. The material processing department supplies all plants for production before reaching final assembly, and the logistics team then consolidates trailers to form loads for dealer groups throughout Canada and the United States.

Southland Trailers will continue to lead the industry for years to come while supporting our community’s progress. We are committed to empowering people to do it better and are confident this approach will drive our vision for future growth.

Southland Trailers, empowering people to do it better.

Lead With Humility

We willingly lead with humility. Every member of the STC community – customers, partners, vendors, and fellow team members – should feel heard and valued. Every STC interaction should be comprised of authenticity, compassion, and respect.

We take smart risks. We embrace the failures that lead to a better way. We are relentless in our intent to improve as individuals, and as the company we are building together.

Open Communication

Communication is how we build strong, trusting relationships with each other, and with our partners, customers, and communities. Respectful, transparent communication is not an option at STC—it is an obligation.

At STC we know nothing worthwhile is easy. Working hard means more than simply giving additional effort; it represents attitude and desire. It reflects a willingness to roll up your sleeves solve problems, and get the job done right.

Positive Attitude

We choose to be positive. Positivity is contagious and boosts the happiness, productivity, and creativity of those around us.

Two months ago, I purchased a new Southland SL612-14K dump trailer from Flaman Trailer Sales in... Nisku, AB. I had done lots of research on dump trailers and decided this was the right one for my application. I'm landscaping a 3.5 acre property which requires considerable grading, leveling, and approx. 300 tons of topsoil to be hauled in. Rather than hiring a landscaping company, it was much, much cheaper for me to buy a compact track loader (ASV RT25) and a dump trailer and do the job myself.I can't tell you how happy I am to have chosen the SL612-14K. This is a tough, heavy duty trailer. The design is superb and it's manufactured to high quality standards. The trailer has too many features to mention in this review, but all together it performs exactly how I need it to. I will mention the twin longitudinal beam construction supporting the box. This is an excellent design compared to cross members. There is minimal box contortion and strong floor support (see photo).The trailer is easy to couple, easy to dump, and tows steady and true. The 7000 lb. tandem axles give me lots of capacity for any job. I hardly know it's behind me when hauling the track loader. It's great for my quad as well, but that's no challenge for this trailer.Flaman gave me excellent sales support and Southland provided a factory rebate which made this deal superior to any competitor option. And, importantly, being a businessman in Alberta for over three decades, it's essential for me to buy locally when possible. I'm very proud of my Alberta-made Southland trailer.read more

I recently bought a Southland Dump Trailer and I love it. It needed a small adjustment that... required some touch-up paint. The dealer I bought the trailer from wasn't the most helpful so I've been working directly with James Salter and he's been awesome. He's really gone out of his way to make sure I as a customer I've been taken care of. Great customer service.read more
