CAR MATE Equipment Information: in Illinois
The Car Mate Trailers company slogan "Trailers that work for a living" very accurately sums up the basis of this well-known company. Founded in 1974 by James A. Pfendler as Pennstyle campers, the Car Mate trailers brand began as a company that produced aluminum truck caps and other accessories. In 1984, the first Car Mate utility trailers were developed and the brand's offerings soon evolved to include enclosed and open model trailers that were known to be of the highest quality. Pfender sold the company in 1996 and the name was changed to Car Mate Trailers, Incorporated, but the initial quality that the company was known for has remained the same. Today's Car Mate lineup includes a wide range of cargo trailers, car trailers, utility trailers, and equipment trailers, making them a great choice for ordinary consumers or companies in need of trailers to transport equipment and more. Each of their trailers is built from scratch by their 80 employees, never turning to the robotic, mass assembly setups that many industry competitors are now using. This commitment to quality allows the brand's quality reputation to grow and thrive. Car Mate Trailers exclusive partnerships with quality brands that have great warranty offerings for their components has helped to solidify their reputation as one of the best in the business. All Car Mate trailers feature Dexter Axles, including their Spring and Torflex Torsion Axles. Similarly, each trailer includes Kenda Radial tires as their standard. Both of which have extensive warranty programs that reflect the quality production of their products. Car Mate Trailers sell their newest model trailers through a network of dealers that are exclusively in the Northeast US and Eastern Canada. These regional dealers can provide the high-quality service and accessibility that Car Mate has worked hard to establish throughout its years in business.
