Bristol, Ind.-based Formula Trailers, a producer of cargo trailers, announced the purchase of certain assets and intellectual rights for Impact Trailers on April 23, 2019.
The former Elkhart, Ind.-based Impact Trailers was founded in 2017 and closed manufacturing operations in April 2019. Formula Trailers, which began production in July 2018 under the leadership of Jeff Troyer, is experiencing rapid growth and Troyer has brought on Impact’s founders, Brad Bell and Dwight Barnes.
Bell and Barnes will bolster the sales of Formula/Impact and bring their innovative products to the already outstanding Formula offering. Additionally, Impact dealers will now have wholesale and retail financing available to their dealerships.
Formula Trailers operates in a 110,000-square-foot facility which will accommodate Impact Trailers and provide plenty of space to grow their brands. Formula currently produces both steel and aluminum enclosed and open cargo trailers, car haulers and snowmobile trailers.
Formula Trailers will continue to manufacture trailers under the Formula brand name, while building strong dealer partnerships with a second product offering. The Impact cargo trailer models Tremor and Shockwave will continue to be built with the features and value that dealers and customers expect from the brand.
Troyer stated, “Brad and Dwight have done an excellent job with Impact and I am excited to add them to our outstanding team. Along with Brent Sheehan’s experience and knowledge, we feel we have the best team in the business. We are looking forward to adding the Impact name to our business and building the best quality race and cargo products in the industry.”
