Cleveland, Tenn. – (May 5, 2017) – The Truck Trailer Manufacturers Association (TTMA) recently awarded Athens Trailer Operations its 16th consecutive Plant Safety award. The award was presented to Jake Radish, Director for EnTrans International, parent company of Heil Trailer International, at TTMA’s 75th annual convention in Amelia Island, Florida, on April 27.

TTMA offers two awards, one for tank and the other for general trailer manufacturers with each divided by plant size. Athens Trailer Operations was recognized in the “A” category, which includes manufacturing plants that annually have over 750,000 labor hours. TTMA has been awarding Plant Safety awards for 44 years. Award winners are selected based on an evaluation and ranking taken from injury data recorded on the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) annual injury reports.
