Ever since Trout River Industries patented its unique live-bottom trailer design in 1999, founder Harvey Stewart has worked to build on his company’s success.
Trout River Industries is now Canada’s leading manufacturer of live-bottom trailers for the heavy construction industry. Today the company and the province announced that Trout River will lease space in a provincially owned building in Bloomfield that will allow it to expand its trailer sales into the United States, Europe, and the Middle East.
“This expansion will see our company manufacture parts for Trout River and its partners at the Bloomfield location while increasing production in Coleman,” Stewart said. “We expect the expansion will add approximately 20 jobs with the possibility of more in the near future.”
