Company Overview

Our Story

Often the specialization of a company is an evolutionary process, and that has been the way in which Waltron Trailers has become who we are today. In operation since the early 1970’s, Waltron recognized a need for a company with specialized ability in the design and production of custom trailers for heavy-haul industrial applications.

Our Work

Simply put, Waltron Trailers designs and manufactures specialty transportation systems. Our work, however, is far from simple and embodies professionalism and expertise that goes beyond industry requirements. At Waltron Trailers, we have designed and created heavy-haul trailers for industries as diverse as agriculture, energy, marine and infrastructure. We understand the unique needs and capacity requirements of the heavy-haul industry and design our products to address those needs.

Our team consists of more than 30 stringently trained and qualified professionals. Our on-site design unit is fully proficient in CAD technologies, and will collaborate with you to customize the solution that works for your needs and your industry requirements. Our work meets or exceeds all MTO and DOT standards, and our design and build crew are fully certified in all aspects of structural fabrication.

We target the international transportation industry with a primary focus on specialty O.E.M. transport trailers. Waltron’s custom design capabilities give you the power to turn your dream into a reality!

Areas of Specialty
1980's

• Early 1980’s - Design innovation of a unique style of hydraulic disc brake drop axle. This unique design was created to solve the problem of heavy boat hauling. The drop axle is now in use in all of our world-class trailers, leading Waltron to become synonymous with excellence in boat trailers.

• 1985: Waltron designs a bigger version of their already successful trailers, using both a larger hydraulic disc brake drop axle as well as larger tires.

1990's

• 1990-91: Waltron accommodates the growing needs of a changing market by introducing a re-designed trailer, which is lower to the ground to adapt to larger boats.

• 1992: Waltron, in cooperation with loyal customers, develops a “stinger steered trailer,” a concept adapted from the automotive industry, and customized for marine application.

2000’s

• Into the new century: Waltron designed the removable gooseneck trailer, which gives heavy haulers the ability to diversify their service, and also created a trombone “stretch” trailer, which extends from 53 to 69 feet.
