Manufacturer Spotlight: Aluma
For 25 years Aluma has been building quality trailers to carry your work, play, or collectible vehicles safely to the next adventure.
Based in Iowa, the heartland of America, today Aluma crafts 60 models of light-weight, heavy duty trailers that leave the manufacturing plant with an industry-leading, all-inclusive 5-year warranty.
Aluma boasts one of the most complete line of aluminum utility and recreational trailers in America, offering utility trailers, ATV trailers, open and closed snowmobile trailers, open and closed motorcycle trailers, watercraft trailers, car haulers, and truck beds.
No matter the trailer that fits your needs, it will be crafted by skilled workers with all aluminum welded construction that results in a trailer that is lighter, stronger, and more durable than steel – and most importantly rust-free for life. Aluma’s strength is in the details – look for rivet-less exterior walls, custom aluminum extrusions, and seamless aluminum roofs.
To celebrate its 25th anniversary, Aluma has created 25th anniversary package, trailers with the same great Aluma value, with added tongue handle, Tiger black aluminum wheels, and LED bed lights, along with other features specific to individual models.
Aluma also marked its anniversary in 2017 with the completion of its massive 43,000-square foot expansion for shipping – allowing Aluma to keep products moving out to their loyal dealers even in the harsh Iowa winters.
Massive production and shipping facilities and the vast product line are a long journey from Aluma’s beginnings in 1992.
The company got its start when founder Dean Maschoff answered the call of friends to create a golf cart trailer from aluminum. The trailers were in instant demand, and Maschoff completed several before he found time to make one for his own golf cart. The popularity of the light-weight trailers inspired Maschoff to found a small company, Aluma, Ltd.
By 1995, Maschoff’s aluminum trailers were so popular he moved to a 12,000-square foot building in Bancroft, Iowa., where five employees built about two trailers a day. By 1998, Maschoff doubled the size of the Aluma manufacturing plant.
In 2000, after more expansion, Maschoff decided to focus on designing trailers and sold Aluma to KLM Acquisition Company. More expansion followed and in 2012 Aluma purchased a 105,000-square foot building in Emmetsburg, Iowa, for warehousing, production, research, and development of its enclosed trailer line.
Today, Aluma produces over 300 trailers a day to be shipped across the U.S., Canada, Guam and Mexico. With its vast product line, commitment to quality and timely delivery, there’s an Aluma trailer to fit your towing needs.
