The Athens Facility
Heil Trailer International, Co., Athens, Tennessee is the leading manufacturer of aluminum tank trailers in the world. This 213,000 square foot facility operates two shifts a day,6 days a week, producing over 100 units per month. Athens manufactures the Heil Dry Bulk Low Cube (1000 Cu-Ft to 1350 Cu-Ft) as well as the commercial and military petroleum tank trailers. Our core competencies reside in the engineering and manufacturing of customized trailers that meet or exceed our customer’s product / service expectations. The Athens facility places over 35,000 pounds of aluminum and 30,000 pounds of steel (primarily due to the stainless steel military refuelers) into production daily.
Innovation is the key to our success; Heil is the only manufacturer that builds a lapped top petroleum trailer designed to envelop the heads and surge baffles. This allows us to build a more reliable, higher quality, more cosmetically appealing vessel.
Heil is the first tank trailer manufacturer to receive ISO Certification in North America. We continue our commitment to continuous quality and process improvement through implementation of Lean Manufacturing concepts that reduce product costs, shorten lead times, and reduce manufacturing process cycle time. Entering our second century as a trailer manufacturer, Heil continues to build upon its market leadership success through a renewed commitment to customer satisfaction.
