Southland Trailer Corp., is an incubator where innovative ideas thrive and flourish as we strive to adapt to changing market and consumer demands.At Southland, we are innovators, entrepreneurs, creators, designers.
Southland fabricates our entire product line in-house, which increases production and minimizes cost. Currently, at Southland Trailers we have divided our plant up into four main areas: Parts Fabrication, Fabrication Line, Prep/Paint Booth and Finishing Line.
“The advantage Southland Trailer Corp. has over other facilities is our integrated in-house fabrication ability. Being able to fabricate parts in-house allows us to think outside the box when designing or improving our trailers.”
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.
