History
Formed in 2001 and headquartered in Fort Myers, Florida, Universal Trailer Corporation announced its presence when it acquired Exiss Aluminum Trailers, Inc. of El Reno, Okla., as its first brand. In 2002 Haulmark Industries, Inc., headquartered in Bristol, Ind., joined the family of brands. Sooner Trailer Manufacturing Company of Duncan, Okla., became a part of Universal in late 2003, Featherlite of Cresco, Iowa, in late 2006 and Wells Cargo of Elkhart, Ind., in 2009. In 2018, its Haulmark and Wells Cargo brands were sold. Though Universal was formed in 2001, its brands have been in existence for up to 60 years.
