The article offers information on a copy of the cargo trailer lost by Sam Hart of Florida in a tornado made by A-OK Trailers. The processes being used by A-OK Trailers in producing its trailers include placing steel components in an assembly jig when welding and cleaning the frame using a chemical spray it formulated. The company attributes its growth to the gas-saving V-nose design and smooth sides of its cargo trailers. A-OK conducts six separate inspections prior to shipping.
