Con-way Manufacturing produces trailing equipment for the less-than-truckload and full-truckload over-the-road freight transportation markets. In addition to manufacturing factory-new trailers, the company also specializes in trailer refurbishing, and applying specialized processes, tooling and expertise to refurbish and rebuild used trailers to like-new condition, while recycling up to 80 percent of existing trailer components and material.

By aligning more closely with the overall Con-way brand, Con-way Manufacturing is leveraging the long-standing reputation for quality and service of parent company, Con-way Inc., and its operating units, less-than-truckload carrier Con-way Freight, nationwide full-truckload carrier, Con-way Truckload, and global supply chain services provider Menlo Worldwide Logistics.

Founded in 1977, today Con-way Manufacturing is the exclusive provider of freight trailers and trailing equipment for Con-way Freight, and provides trailer-refurbishing services to Con-way Truckload. The company also markets and sells its products to independent trucking companies. "We've been known in the industry as Con-way Manufacturing for years now," said Lynn Reinbolt, president of Con-way Manufacturing. "For our employees and customers, it was the right time to formally change the name of the company. We have long shared Con-way's core values and commitment to excellence in the transportation industry. We're certainly proud to be part of this organization, and this name change further aligns us with the proud history and heritage that accompanies the Con-way brand."
