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 and visionaries working together. Our commitment goes beyond the manufacturing process as we invest in relationships between ourselves, the dealers and the consumers, and they have brought us to a position to add value to our products beyond the capability and features of the product itself. We have grown to become one of the largest of steel product manufactures in Southern Alberta, with a customer base that stretches across Western Canada, the Territories, Ontario and several bordering US states.
The advantages Southland Trailer Corp. has over other facilities is our in-house fabrication capabilities which allows 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 feed back immediately during our prototyping phase.
We purchase material in bulk. This allows us to fabricate and store” kits” inhouse and stream lines the production run. When taking out the middle man, we have an increased communication between the project manager, engineer, and fab shop which has improved our product quality.
Team work ia 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 venders involved.
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.
On the finish line we add the final touches to the trailer which include installing the flooring, aluminum skin application, electrical work, roof mounting, Tire assembly and the application of automotive under coating. This is where we customise any work, which includes additional doors, windows, vents, heater packages, electrical packages, custom colors etc.
