Talbert Manufacturing, Rensselaer, Indiana, a leader in specialized heavy-haul solutions, received a Longevity Award from the Specialized Carriers & Rigging Association. The SC&RA is an international organization representing members from more than 46 countries. Every year, it presents Longevity Awards to member companies for their longtime support and dedication to the association and its mission of monitoring and affecting pending legislation and regulatory policies as well as staying up to date on safety concerns and best business practices in the industry. Talbert was recognized with the 70 Years award.
“It is important that Talbert continues our membership with SC&RA as they are very strong in advocacy, education and networking for many of the industries we serve,” says Troy Geisler, vice president of sales and marketing for Talbert Manufacturing. “They are vital to our customers as they continue to help shape and influence the regulations and industry-wide policies that affect heavy haul moves not only in North America but across the globe. We want to be more than just a manufacturer. We want to be part of the drive for industry change to help push for safe and legal work practices and policies.”
For more than eight decades, Talbert Manufacturing has been providing innovative and reliable transport solutions customized to client specifications. Throughout that time, Talbert has built thousands of custom units and prides itself not only on the relationships that it has nurtured along the way, but also on the trailers’ durability and longevity; 92% of the Talbert trailers built since 1985 are still on the road today. Over the years, the company has stayed true to the mission Austin Talbert had in 1938 when he set out to change the heavy-haul industry: to design and build safety, quality and durability into every last detail of its trailers. That mission aligns with the SC&RA’s dedication to advocate and educate on safety and industry best practices.
“Talbert has long been dedicated to producing safe, durable and custom-built solutions to our customers’ specific transportation needs,” says Geisler. “A part of our legacy has been the many relationships that have been built over the years by our customers, suppliers and associations such as the SC&RA. We are honored to receive this Longevity Award and we want to continue our commitment to be the company customers can count on for the long haul.”
