Talbert
is commemorating its milestone 75th year in business in 2013. To celebrate, the
company is offering and optional, distinctive anniversary package on select
2013 models. Greg Smith, VP of sales and marketing at Talbert, says the
anniversary option marks an important event for the company.

 

“Not many
trailer companies have been in business for 75 years, and fewer yet can say
they have had customers with them for the majority of those years,” he said.
“This 75th anniversary commemorative trailer has significant meaning for our
company and the entire Talbert team. We want to share this celebration with our
dealers and customers who have spent so many years as our partners, as well as
those new to Talbert.”

 

A limited
number of the anniversary edition trailers are available on Talbert’s popular
55-ton series trailers, specifically the 55CC, 55SA, 55SA-RC and 55SA-HX
models.

 

The basic
anniversary package includes cosmetic detailing throughout the length of the
trailer, topped off with special Talbert 75th anniversary decals. Featured on
both sides of the trailer, these decals appear on bright stainless steel in
each of the gooseneck insets. In addition, there are special stainless steel
insets in the rear of the trailer as well as stainless steel mud flap brackets
with throwback script lettering of “Talbert” cutout. Customers also are able to
request a “Made Especially For…” custom placard decal that will be affixed to the
gooseneck.

 

Outriggers
are powder coated and metallic silver in color to stand out from the
anniversary trailer body. Special 75th anniversary conspicuity tape lines the
sides of each anniversary trailer. The trailer is offered in standard Talbert
Red or Talbert Black and will feature a clear coating to boost the color and
provide a distinct shine. Finally, the apitong decking on each 75th anniversary
trailer is treated with linseed oil to liven the appearance of the wood and
serve as a preservative.

 

Beyond
the basic package, customers can get options such as aluminum wheels, special
lighting and other custom parts and accessories. Package prices will vary
depending on each custom design and will be determined by each dealer.

 

While the
trailer is designed to commemorate Talbert’s heritage and history, Smith and
the rest of the Talbert team are looking ahead. “We are very proud of our
history as a company, and we are excited to celebrate 75 years of success,” he
said. “At the same time, we look forward to a bright future and another 75
years of manufacturing the best custom trailers on the market.”
