GREAT BEND, Kan. — Doonan Specialized Trailer, a leading manufacturer of specialty platform trailers, including custom flatbeds, drop decks, oilfield trailers, extendibles, RGN lowbeds and double drops, has “gutted” a 25,000-square foot manufacturing plant, previously used to “stall build” custom trailer products, to create a new, high-efficiency flatbed trailer plant.

Doonan will still build custom trailer products in its main factory, separate from its new high-efficiency flatbed trailer plant.

The new plant will allow Doonan to be more price competitive in the volume build flatbed trailer market, according to Mike Gordy, co-manager.

“We look forward to the many new market opportunities this new plant brings Doonan,” Gordy said.

Construction on the plant began early this summer with high-efficiency flatbed trailer production slated to begin in January.
