Vertically Integrated For Optimum Quality AssuranceStoughton has facilities dedicated to the manufacture of conventional and intermodal transportation equipment. They all have incorporated vertical integration wherever possible to enhance the entire manufacturing operation. This provides us with the opportunity to optimize our quality assurance procedures and improve component inventory control.Our corporate headquarters and trailer manufacturing facility are located in Stoughton, Wisconsin, along with our after market parts distribution center. The 680,000 sq. ft. Stoughton plant houses all of the component manufacturing operations for rear door frames, ladder assemblies and upper coupler assemblies. From fabrication of subassemblies to final assembly of all Stoughton dry vans, this facility has the capacity to produce in excess of 20,000 finished units per year.The 45,000 sq. ft. Stoughton Parts facility is dedicated to supporting our network of Stoughton Trailers dealers, independent repair shops and fleet customers throughout North America.The Difference is Quality applies to all aspects of Stoughton manufacturing operations. Stoughton is vertically integrated in that we design/develop/build (all in-house) not only the trailer but also the tooling and the processes to build the trailer. Incorporating this level of vertical integration allows for flexibility, rapid response time and superior control of parts and processing. It all leads to the highest level of quality control in the trailer industry. So, while other trailer manufacturers are buying assemblies from domestic or even offshore suppliers with little or no control over quality, we are building the highest quality trailer on the road today.At a production rate exceeding one container every 40 minutes, the 300,000 sq. ft. Stoughton Trailers container facility is one of the most modern and automated facilities in North America for the manufacture of containers and container chassis.This state-of-the-art 262,000 sq. ft. facility is Stoughton's newest plant designed for high volume fleet sales. The facility has incorporated Stoughton's latest production technology for high volume van assembly. It is capable of handling all trailer fabrications using the latest equipment and techniques. Virtually all components are manufactured and assembled in-house to assure the highest level of quality and control. Major trailer components are welded by robot for high, consistent production. All our facilities incorporate the latest process equipment for premier, long-life painting of steel components. All components are grit blasted prior to painting. The painting process employs semi-automated electrostatic spray for both prime and top coat with oven cure.Stoughton Trailers Acceptance Company, LLCBorn of our commitment to support our dealer network and our focus on meeting the varying needs of our customers, Stoughton Trailers Acceptance Company (STAC) was founded.STAC provides a full range of custom leasing programs for all Stoughton customers.
