Meet Bud Reitnouer
When he was only 24 years old, Bud Reitnouer had an idea. His research showed that an aluminum flatbed trailer would be superior if it could be manufactured without welding. Bud knew that, because aluminum is a heat treated metal, welding aluminum would create a structurally weakened material at the point of the weld and that bolting an aluminum trailer in the manufacturing process would eliminate this problem.
So Bud set to work. He engineered what became the Reitnouer Aluminum Flatbed Trailer, and subsequently, revolutionized an entire industry. Today, his company, Reitnouer Trailers, is the largest manufacturer of aluminum flatbed trailers in North America, the design of choice for drivers everywhere and the standard by which all other trailers are measured.
An innovative idea that changed an industry.
Bud’s goal was to design and build a trailer he could be proud of — a trailer that would deliver the weight savings promised by aluminum, with the strength, reliability and ease of repair that owners needed for a very demanding work environment. As a result, Reitnouer trailers are engineered for long life and easy maintenance, with a rock-solid design proven over millions and millions of miles.
Customer focus like no one else.
From the very beginning, Bud committed himself and his company to the needs of his customers. While “customer service” is a part of any business, Bud and his team have rewritten the book on customer focus, too; just as the Reitnouer Aluminum Flatbed Trailer rewrote the book for an entire industry: by leading, never following.
In fact, quality and customer-focus have guided Bud’s entire company since the beginning. There are so many customer stories of how Reitnouer has bent over backwards to come to the aid of a customer – so many design innovations that have come from customer input and ideas – a strong connection with the people who own Reitnouer trailers that is almost like an extended family.
You can count on Reitnouer.
And every day since 1982, there is one guiding object standing behind every Reitnouer trailer, behind every innovation, behind every hero story, behind a trailer that not only revolutionized an entire industry, but one that has become the standard by which all others are measured. And that’s Bud Reitnouer.
