Trailer manufacturers Haulmark Industries, Bristol, Ind., and Exiss Aluminum Trailers of Oklahoma now have the same parent, The Trailer Group.
Haulmark builds steel enclosed trailers for use by landscaping and construction contractors and race car teams, according to the Elkhart (Ind.) Truth newspaper.
Meanwhile, Exiss builds aluminum equine, livestock and automobile trailers.
The Trailer Group was founded last October and Exiss was its only operating company, until it acquired Haulmark last month.
Haulmark and Exiss will continue to operate separately although they will jointly develop new products.
