Heil Trailer International, Co. introduced several new products at the Mid-America Trucking Show at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville, Kentucky.

For 2014, Heil Trailer launches into the stainless steel segment with a line of general chemical tank trailers that are built with an enhanced focus on quality and performance, similar to the standards of excellence applied to the company’s aluminum tank trailers.

The new stainless steel technology provides state-of-the-art, custom-developed, ultra-high-definition laser cutting for a tighter barrel fit-up and size-optimized, laser-welded barrel joints that ensure little to no grinding or post-processing after fit-up, which creates ultra-clean interiors and maximizes durability, regardless of the product. A proprietary heat panel design on the new products outperforms current dimple panel designs and channel heat designs. In the near future, the new stainless steel technology will offer up to 3-A sanitary compliance, the highest of sanitary standards for critical food grade and other material requirements.  

Heil Trailer also introduced larger capacities to its dry bulk portfolio, allowing customers more options when it comes to the type of commodities they transport. The ultra-cleanable 1611 trailer, a unique dry bulk trailer, will be introduced for the food grade industry.

These new products from Heil Trailer were unveiled at an exclusive press event and VIP party held March 26 to officially kick-off the MATS event.

“As market share leader in the tank trailer industry, Heil Trailer has been in the business of creating game-changing solutions for generations of loyal customers for more than 113 years,” said Randall Swift, President and CEO of Heil Trailer International, Co. “In addition to the new products introduced at this year’s MATS show, we’ll continue to create new products, new lines and new innovations of enduring value that meet our customers’ needs.”
