Founded in 1968 by two Hillsboro, Kansas entrepreneurs, Hillsboro Industries was from the start dedicated to producing unique, innovative, high-quality products.
Beginning with spring-tooth harrows and multiple drill hitches, Hillsboro Industries’ product line soon grew to encompass flatbed trailers and hydraulic-dump grain trailers. These early-on products were met with an enthusiastic marketplace that recognized Hillsboro’s focus on quality, durability and value.
Throughout the seventies and eighties the company opened the door to facility expansion and new product development. In 2008 we moved into our latest major expansion; a 22,500 square-foot addition. This brought our total facility to nearly 100,000 sq. ft. of manufacturing space; allowing us to remain one of the most efficient, yet highest quality producers of innovative light-weight aluminum stock, cargo and car-hauler trailers, aluminum and steel truck beds and construction-grade flatbed trailers in the country.
Our engineering staff is constantly challenged to find new ways to improve existing lines and introduce new innovative products required to meet the challenges of an ever-changing marketplace. For instance, since 2006 we introduced an entire new line of rugged 12’ and 14’ dump trailers; a new “Tilt- Trailer” in both gooseneck and straight-hitch designs; the new “G2 Steel Truck Bed” line; and just this past year our new Series 3000 Aluminum Truck Bed line has proven to be an outstanding success amongst our customers. To say the least, our engineers have been busy – and they’re not letting up in the slightest either. And they’re not done yet. We can’t wait to tell you about the new products set to roll out in a few short months now.
Needless to say, Hillsboro is here to stay too. Although there have been quite a few trailer manufacturing companies fall to the way side over the past three or four years, we’ve remained strong and intend to be around for another 40 years.
With an experienced and dedicated work force that continues to develop and introduce industry-first features and high-quality products year after year, our customers know “Hillsboro” means more than just a name. It means you are assured of getting the highest quality product made. Bottom line; when you say “HILLSBORO” you’re talking quality.
