Talbert has reached 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."
