It’s always exciting when a business is able to expand, make upgrades or just give themselves a “face-lift.” A business thrives after they reinvest in themselves and that is exactly what Early Trailer Sales in Early is doing.
“We bought this business from the previous owners back in 2009 and we started in the little building and then in 2014 we moved into this current building.” said Anne Caten, Owner of Early Trailer Sales.
Recently, Early Trailer Sales decided to expand their lot by purchasing a one-acre lot across the highway for overflow inventory. However, this is not the most impressive thing about their expansion. Early Trailer Sales has also started the construction of a new building.
“It’s gotten to a point where we need more employees and there’s nowhere to put them. Also, the facilities we have just sort of make do so we really want to upgrade our image while also increasing our functionality.” said Anne.
The new building will contain offices, a showroom, a parts warehouse and a two-bay shop. Currently, the building has begun taking shape as beams are being placed and you can expect to see it progressing in the next few months to come.
“Sometimes we just have to sit back and be like ‘oh my gosh what did we do?’” said Anne referring to how much growth they’ve experienced. “All three of our kids are working for us and we just feel really blessed and humbled because it’s the customers that keep it all going and they just really feel like our friends.”
Speaking towards the future, Anne says that they see the new shop and building allowing them to really increase the quality in their maintenance department and rental department. We certainly are excited to see the future of this wonderful business.
