Sauk Centre, MN - Felling Trailers implemented a second shift in mid-February to increase production and decrease lead time. "We have experienced a great demand for most of our products - dumps, flatbeds, heavy deck-overs and semi trailers," said Patrick Jennissen, Felling Trailers' sales and marketing director. "As a result, we implemented a second shift to increase production and decrease lead time as much as possible," added Paul Radjenovich, director of operations.
Felling Trailers has hired 70 people since the beginning of the year, bringing its total employment to over 150, which is a company record after nearly 37 years in business. Felling Trailers' second shift works Monday through Thursday from 4:00 pm to 3:30 am and is currently hiring machine operators, painters, welders and final assembly personnel for both first and second shifts.
