Bristol, Ind.-based LOOK Trailers announced that its Everlite cargo trailer brand has sold 500 units at retail, according to a press release.
The company reported that Everlite offers a complete line of aluminum open utility, ATV, car, snowmobile and motorcycle trailers. Trailers are available for distribution at four plants nationwide including facilities in Indiana, Georgia, Utah and Arizona.
The Everlite brand was launched in response to consumer demands for low maintenance, lightweight and affordable aluminum trailers, the company said. The line consists of models ranging in sizes from 5-wide single axle utility models up to 8.5-wide tilt-bed car haulers with a 10,000-pound GVWR. The Everlite brand also features Dexter Torflex Axles, a custom extrusion frame with uni-body construction and standard LED lighting.
Matt Arnold, president of LOOK Trailers, stated, “The fact that we have reached 500 retail sales already says a lot about the quality of the trailers and their ability to fit the needs of the consumer.”
LOOK Trailers, founded in 2010, has grown to include five manufacturing facilities across the U.S. In January 2012, LOOK resumed production of Pace American enclosed trailers after it acquired the intellectual property and certain assets from a bankruptcy auction in November 2011.
In February 2012, LOOK was named the Fastest Growing Enclosed Trailer Manufacturer by Statistical Surveys Inc. for 2011. For more information on LOOK Trailers, visit http://www.looktrailers.com.

LOOK Trailers, a Bristol, Ind., cargo trailer company, purchased trade names and intellectual property along with limited assets of now defunct Pace American Enterprises Inc.
According to a press release, Look purchased the Pace brand Nov. 2 from Myron Bowling Auctioneers of Ohio as the high bidder at the federal bankruptcy court auction held in Chicago, Ill.
The former Illinois-headquartered Pace American Trailers closed manufacturing operations at its Middlebury, Ind., location and four additional manufacturing locations in August 2011 resulting in the loss of over 400 jobs nationwide.
LOOK Trailers opened for business in February of 2010 under the leadership of President Matt Arnold. According to Arnold, the “customer-focused company is financially stable with a strong balance sheet and seasoned management team with extensive experience in the trailer industry.”
LOOK currently produces enclosed cargo, utility and car trailers as well as custom-built trailers for specific customer needs. The LOOK brand and product lineup will remain independent as they revive the Pace American Brand in the coming months.
“Pace American has tremendous brand recognition that we know will be favorably received by our dealers and the retail public,” said Arnold. “We look forward to resuming production of the well-regarded Pace American and Cargo Express products as early as next month.”
Because there is capacity at its satellite manufacturing sites, LOOK will begin manufacturing these select Pace American products at facilities in Fitzgerald, Ga., Springville, Utah, and Phoenix, Ariz. LOOK is also partnering with the Elkhart County Economic Development Corp. and exploring the possibility of resumed operation of the former Pace American Trailer manufacturing facility in Middlebury.
“We are a small business, and we have been successful by staying close to our customers and delivering on their needs,” Arnold said. “At LOOK Trailers, we are still focused on being the best, not the biggest, trailer manufacturer in the industry and the Pace American acquisition will help us deliver even greater value to our customers.”
Utility trailer manufacturer LOOK Trailers, based in Bristol, Ind., has added a new facility in Springville, Utah, according to a news release
“I am very excited to work with our entire team in Utah,” said Matt Arnold, owner of the company, which was founded in March of 2010. “We have a strong management group in place and they have completed the fabrication of our jigs and fixtures a week ahead of schedule.”
The production team, led by James Mastellar with over 16 years of cargo trailer experience, is in the process of staffing the production line to start manufacturing July 5. Cory Conlin, territory sales manager has already booked orders for this plant and is accepting new dealership applications for the Northwestern United States and Western Canada.
“It’s a pleasure to start up an operation with professionals that share our vision of quality and dedication to our customers,” Arnold said. “James and Scott Rawson, our welding lead, have impressed me with their dedication and effort starting this plant from scratch.”
LOOK is investing in infrastructure as well, having just completed installation of $20,000 in energy efficient lighting fixtures. In addition to upgrading the lighting, LOOK will be painting and repairing the building to make this location a premier cargo trailer manufacturing facility.
