Manufacturing Corp. History
Manufacturing Corporation was founded in July, 1993 by Gary and Nancy
Strobel as an alternative source of income and also to try to build
a less expensive Hopper Bottom Trailer for the farmer. In 1993,
Sparta manufactured it's first trailer in a small shop in Tallulah,
Louisiana with only himself and one employees.
1994 Sparta moved it's operations to Mound, Louisiana just East of
Tallulah on I-20 Hwy at MOUND, LOUISIANA (EXIT 182). Since the move
sales have grown continuously. Sparta has since built over Six Hundred
(600) trailers. The trailers have been sold in thirty states and Mexico.
Sparta's products are considered to be a premium steel trailer in the
industry. Selling at a higher retail against it's competitors. Their
quality of welding and strength of design are what continue to expand
the rapidly growing market. With most components made in the USA, it
is a product that you can be proud to own. Sparta Trailers combine
the best aspects of construction in the USA today. With lengths
of 20' to 53',and heights of 63" to 114" and widths of 96" or
102". With a load capacity of 780 to 3800+ cubic feet, the
all American made trailer will handle your needs very well. Sparta's
main products are Grain Hopper Trailers for use on farming operations.
The trailers are designed primarily for agricultural usage. Sparta
also manufacture Stainless Steel Hopper Trailers for use in the fertilizer industry
and other corrosive products. Other products that we offer are specialty
