American Trailer & Storage (AT&S) announced today that the company signed a dealership agreement with Reitnouer, Inc., a Reading, Pennsylvania manufacturer. Reitnouer is the transportation industry’s leading all aluminum semi-trailer flatbed manufacturer.
“AT&S is proud to join the Reitnouer team. They have been building the highest quality flatbed trailers since 1982, and we think they are a great complement to our rental fleet and new Hyundai line of dry vans and refrigerated trailers,” said Rick Honan, AT&S President. The addition of the Reitnouer line gives AT&S a full range of new semi-trailers, including dry vans, refrigerated trailers, steel, combination and now aluminum flatbed semi-trailers.
According to a February 2013 article in Trailer/Body Builders industry publication, Reintnouer built 2,750 all-aluminum, bolted design platform trailers in 2012, a 79% increase over 2011 production. Bud Reitnouer “thinks fleets are looking for the lighter weight trailers to offset the heavier truck tractors now needed. Road de-icing chemicals now play a role in the increasing market share for all-aluminum designs.” (Truck Body Builders, February 2013).
AT&S will sell and service the full line of Reitnouer trailers including the MaxMiser model (a 90,000 lb. GVWR* heavy weight flatbed trailer, the Big Bubba, a 100,000 lb. GVWR model, the Bigger Bubba, a 110,000 lb. GVWR model designed to handle the heaviest loads, and the MaxLite, an 80,000 lb. GVWR model designed to maximize payload. Additionally, American Trailer & Storage will offer the Reitnouer B-train in lengths from 28’ to 32’, multi-axle options on all trailers and drop deck trailers (DropMiser models) with the strength needed for heavy hauls with the increased load capacity of an aluminum trailer.
