MANUFACTURER OF ‘NEW PRODUCT OF THE YEAR’ BEGINS MANUFACTURING IN SALISBURY, NC
SALISBURY, NC – The makers of the Extend-A-Haul truck bed extender have established a manufacturing facility in Salisbury, NC, in the Speedway Business Park along Interstate 85. The Extend-A-Haul recently won two awards at the 2009 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas: SEMA-Global Media Awards, first place, "New Product of the Year" and runner up, overall "New Product Of The Year."
The SEMA Show is the premier automotive specialty trade show in the world, annually attracting more than 100,000 people, with nearly 1,500 new products introduced.
The Extend-A-Haul™ is an aluminum truck bed extender truck that doubles as a ramp for all terrain vehicles and motorcycles. It also allows truck owners to transport building materials too long to carry in the bed of a truck by extending the length of the bed.
“We chose Salisbury for setting up our manufacturing operation because of its pool of qualified workforce, affordable manufacturing space and central location,” said Chris Eales, president and CEO. “If our products sell as well as we project, we hope to employ several more people in the coming months.”
According to Eales, plans include adding several models, including one that extends the bed of utility vehicles, such as John Deere’s Gator. Accessories for the truck model include a stand for a motorcycle, a portable conversion kit and various tie downs. We are looking to team up with many dealers across the nation. Take a look at our dealer map and you may find one close to you. Our Motorcycle hauler and argo hauler are a great addition to our list of accessories.
The Extend-A-Haul can be purchased online at www.extendahaul.com or by calling 1-877-848-2125. Local pick-up at the manufacturing facility can be arranged to avoid shipping costs.
