A little information on the CARGOMAXXX Aluminum Trailers brand:
CARGOMAXXX Aluminum Trailers was honestly created because of demand from our customers. Originally SIC Metals & Fabrication LLC. ( founded by Bruce Reed ) produced aluminum holding tanks, tool boxes, shelving and other custom aluminum products. As time passed more and more customers were asking Bruce to build a trailer for them because they knew the quality of product Bruce was known for creating. He was reluctant to do so as he had in fact left the trailer industry to persue general fabrication, or so he thought. However more and more of his customers were finding out he had a great deal of experience in building custom products and trailers and continued to push the issue. Eventually Bruce gave in and agreed to build a trailer for a customer over the winter of 2010 in his then quaint 1800 sq. ft. fabrication shop. It was an instant hit with the customer and everyone who saw the trailer. Soon Bruce had more order request than he knew what to do with and had to relocate the business to our current address in Clarion, Pa. in 2012.
Moving ahead to 2012
SIC Metals was in the new factory and ready to go having hired more workers and planning to hire some 12-15 more in the following months Bruce was on the right track. Just a few months afterwards a blow came to the company that is still being felt today. Suddenly there was an investigation launched into the manufacturing of CARGOMAXXX Aluminum Trailers by a representative from Pennsylvania. Within one day Bruce and the factory was shut down and had no information on what would happen next. Bruce had to leave all of his workers go and take the matter to the business attorney. The next few months were extremely difficult, having been informed that the factory must stop all production until the investigation was completed, this was bound to cause massive delays for our customers. Unfortunately Bruce and the company was at the mercy of the state. Surprisingly enough the entire investigation was suddenly dropped when it was discovered by Bruce and a local contact from the Pennsylvania House of Representatives that the reason the company had been shut down was indeed unlawful and had been tried in court some 8 years earlier. Unfortunately it was too late. Bruce had lost all of his workers to other employers or jobs, most of his supplier relations and a large amount of credibility and time. Not a good thing to have happen to a company that is new and trying to grow in the industry. This delay cost so much that Bruce nearly had to close the doors. Having always been a hard worker he decided to hang in there and keep going. He hired a few more people to help him get work done as quickly as possible. It seemed to be working until the complaints began to come in from the BBB, Police and Attorney General. This would prove to open a door that cannot seem to be closed no matter what. Customers who had ordered trailers were still waiting to receive them because of the unlawful shut down and were now begining to panic and believe they had been scammed.
Moving on from 2012-Present
SIC Metals is striving forward! Many changes have been made to include different suppliers, contracts, workers, design and pricing! Lead times have been greatly reduced, most trailers built from order day to pick up or delivery within 2 weeks! We continue to increase the quality of our product and reduce lead times as much as possible, but as no trailer we produce is the same as the last one delays will never dissappear completely.
