Our History

The roots of Strick Trailers, LLC extend into the 1930s, when Frank Strick first applied his knowledge of aircraft engineering to the trucking business. Strick built the first “frameless” monocoque trailer body—a revolutionary development.

Monocoque construction and the use of aluminum rather than steel led to bigger and lighter trailers, which meant more freight could be hauled by one truck. Today, that pioneering spirit continues with innovative trailer design and manufacturing techniques that bring you the finest dry van trailers on the road today.

Strick Corporation was founded in Fairless Hills, Pennsylvania, in 1966. Strick designed and built the Flexi-Van container system for the New York Central Railroad.

In the 1970s, Strick continued to innovate, with the revolutionary Cabunder trailer that made maximum use of the existing weight laws.

The 1980s saw Strick introduce the Armorplate, the first plate trailer design in the trailer industry. 

Recent innovations include the first trailer with an aluminum scuff lining that is integral to the wall and a split-wire electrical harness with fewer connection points that result in fewer electrical shorts. In 2019, we revolutionized the industry with the first Fiberglass Reinforced Composite trailer, the FRC™, and in 2020, we introduced the Elevator™ trailer, a highly specialized trailer equipped with a groundbreaking internal system consisting of a double drop design and moving platforms that, together, provide increased cargo space for operational efficiency.

Throughout our history as a trailer manufacturer in Indiana, we have led the way in trailer innovations that allow shippers to haul more freight and reduce their operating costs. Contact us today to see what our innovative spirit can do for you!
