The head of Stoughton Trailers says a new corporate headquarters and community park project will attract more workers to the local community.
In a recent interview, President and CEO Bob Wahlin said the company aims to be “more of a destination employer” in the years to come. He said the project will help to “separate us from some of the employment competition, and really try to set us up to bring in the best people in our industry to Stoughton.”
Stoughton Trailers is a family-owned business that makes semitrailers, chassis and other transportation equipment. As one of the largest private manufacturers in Wisconsin, the company has eight production sites across multiple states totaling about 2 million square feet of space. Along with facilities in Stoughton, Evansville and Brodhead, Stoughton Trailers has also recently established operations in Texas and Mississippi.
