EnTrans International LLC, a Tennessee-based manufacturer of tank trailers recently received Plant Safety Awards from the Truck Trailer Manufacturers Association (TTMA) for four of its trailer manufacturing facilities, making it the only multi-category winner in the industry.
The awards were presented to Todd Finney, senior vice president for EnTrans International, at TTMA’s 76th annual convention in Santa Ana Pueblo NM.
The TTMA awards are given annually based on plant safety data from TTMA member companies that provide their annual OSHA 300A Summary Form. It is the same data used by the National Safety Council and Bureau of Labor Statistics. The awards are given in two categories: Tank and General Trailer Manufacturers. Each category is divided into three classes determined by plant size.
EnTrans International’s largest tank trailer plant, Juarez Trailer Operations in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, earned its first TTMA Plant Safety Award in Category A, which is awarded to plants with more than 750,000 man-hours per year.
Heil Trailer, Polar Tank Trailer and Jarco products are manufactured at the Juarez facility. That includes every product segment from dry bulk to stainless.
The state-of-the-art Juarez facility opened in 2014. It spans more than 350,000 square feet, holds ASME U and National Board R certificates and boasts the latest fabrication and manufacturing equipment available, the company said.
