East Manufacturing celebrates manufacturing milestone

Updated Apr 17, 2013

East Manufacturing is celebrating its 50,000th Trailer built in its manufacturing plant in Randolph, Ohio.

The 50,000 trailer is the East Genesis smooth-side dump body style. East says the trailer is designed with the ideal balance of low weight for more payload and heavy-duty strength for durability, enabling an overall lower cost of operator for owners.

“This is an important milestone in East’s history, illustrating our 45-year commitment to building quality trailers that deliver superior performance,” said Dave de Poincy, president. “At East, our people take great pride in our innovative leadership.”

Today East has more than four standard dump trailer models with various axle configurations for use in a wide range of trailer applications. In addition, East offers hundreds of different custom options as well as a Genesis dump truck body.

After its debut at the Mid-America Truck Show, the celebrated trailer will become part of the Arms Trucking Company in East Claridon, Ohio, where it will be used in bulk hauling applications.
