Felling Trailers Offers Manufacturing Facility Tours

Felling Trailers Offers Manufacturing Facility ToursFelling Trailers offers manufacturing facility tours for students, non-profit organizations, and other local groups. The tours detail our entire trailer building process from start to finish. Our visitors get to see the machines (laser, saw, brake press, etc.) in action that help build the parts for our trailers. The tour includes stops into the Engineering Department and the front office to show there is more to manufacturing than just welding. We also walk through the different production areas where our team members weld our trailers, paint the trailers, and put the finishing touches on. The Finishing Department is where the trailers are completed before the final Quality Control check, and then the trailer is off to shipping. When time and schedule allow, we also like to showcase the Felling Weld Training Facility to show that we provide training on site.  Click here for a video tour of Felling Trailer and more detail about our manufacturing departments and Manufacturing Facility Tours.

Alexandria Tech College – Manufacturing/Transportation Tour Days

Felling Trailers Offers Manufacturing Facility ToursAlexandria Technical College contacts us every year to be a part in the Manufacturing/ Transportation Tour Days.  ATCC started the Manufacturing/Transportation Tour Days in 1997 for high school students to expose them to careers in manufacturing, mechanics, and construction. They invited Industrial Art and Ag High School teachers throughout Minnesota to bring any age of students they feel would benefit from this event. The intent is to help students understand the potential jobs for after college.  By sending them on an industry tour it helps them understand the end result and then by touring these programs on our campus on what is needed to get these jobs. 

Felling Trailers Promoting Careers in Manufacturing
