Heil Trailer International, Co. in Athens, Tennessee, is the leading manufacturer of aluminum tank trailers in the world. This 213,000-square-foot facility operates two shifts a day, six days a week, producing over 100 units per month. Athens manufactures Heil Dry Bulk Low Cube (1,000 cu.ft. to 1,350 cu.ft.) trailers as well as commercial and military petroleum tank trailers. Our core competencies reside in the engineering and manufacturing of customized trailers that meet or exceed our customer 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 Trailer 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 Trailer 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 Trailer continues to build upon its market leadership success through a renewed commitment to customer satisfaction.
