Trailer Manufacturers & Designers
Manufacturers that produce custom campers, flatbed semi trailers, and enclosed cargo beds need to employ people with different specialties. These employees include engineers who can make personalized designs, customer service reps who can work with rental companies and clients, and managers who can oversee the company's operations.
The engineers who work for these fabrication companies usually have college degrees that have prepared them for the challenges of their jobs. They might need to know quite a bit about various automotive hitches, enclosed cargo beds for utility equipment, storage containers, campers, and flatbed semi trailers. It is unlikely that anyone graduates from college with this level of expertise, so even designers who have degrees will need to some on the job training that allows them to build customized products for movers, rental equipment suppliers, and landfill dumps.
Customer service reps work closely with clients to make sure they get all of the equipment and accessories that they need. A custom manufacturer will often have several different types of clients. Rental companies will order camping equipment, moving kits, and enclosed cargo trailers for their customers. Moving companies, however, will often order the specific types of 5th wheel trailers, van kits, and accessories that they need for their businesses. Customer service reps help the clients decide which options are best for them.
Managers oversee the business to help it succeed. This involves coordinating the efforts of employees and finding low-cost options that will help them rent, lease, and sell their products at competitive prices. The managers often have the authority to offer discounts to large suppliers who place bulk orders of utility, moving, and flatbed trailers.
