Interstate Trailers is celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2012 and the Mansfield, Texas-based manufacturer couldn’t be more excited to share the news with its customers and friends in the industry.

“Break out the bubbly and pass me a hub assembly,” said Interstate Trailers Owner Steve Flowers, with a smile. “Think back to 1982 … here we were coming off an economy that had been chewed up by a coyote and spit off the side of a cliff. People said we didn’t have a snowball’s chance in hell of making it, but something great happened to Interstate Trailers and the construction industry.”

That something great Flowers referred to is what he calls, “the winning years” at his company. The company thrived in the 1980s through hard work, dedication, great employees, a passion to manufacturer quality trailers, and earning a respected name for itself, he said.

It was not surprising that by the 1990s, Interstate Trailers had well established itself in the industry, supported by many dealers across the country.

“We were surrounded by the best dealers in the business,” he said.

Returning and loyal customers also significantly increased.

“Interstate Trailers depended — and still does — on repeat business, or as we refer to it … ’LUCK, or Labor Using Correct Knowledge.’”

Flowers added that contractors recognized the company’s commitment to “superior quality, bottom-line value and the winning tradition,” capped off by a new Interstate Trailers manufacturing facility, built in 2000, in Mansfield, Texas.

Flowers acknowledged that while there are certainly challenges facing the construction industry today, his company is facing it with an undaunted positivity.

“Nobody has been laid off here at Interstate Trailers,” he proudly said. “The average Interstate Trailers employee has 18 years vested in our company and as a wise man once said, ’the older I get, the more I appreciate experience.’ We at Interstate Trailers value experience and we know our customers do, as well. And that’s how we earn repeat business and gain their respect and trust.”

It is this respect, experience and passion with which Interstate Trailers manufactures its products that cause Flowers to be optimistic about his company’s future, for the next 30 years and beyond.

“It is the standard that we should be held accountable and I am absolutely confident that it will remain the standard for many years to come. In fact, in addition to LUCK, we also have HOPE, or Having Only Positive Expectations.”

With an unrelenting positive approach to business and a steadfast commitment to its customers, Flowers and Interstate Trailers are poised to enjoy many more years of success.
