OUR STORY

At MAXX-D Trailers, we’ve been helping people build something great since 1999.

OUR FOUNDER

The story of MAXX-D Trailer is one of hard work, struggle, friendship, and ultimately, success. Our founder, Allen Kornelsen, was a young man in his thirties that had a dream of working hard to lift his family out of financial hardship. He was looking for a job, but was told by a friend in Texas that there was a better opportunity: Allen could start his own trailer manufacturing business.

THE DREAM

Allen moved to Texas, and with the help of his former employer, started his entrepreneurial journey. Twenty-one years ago, in September of 1999, Maxey Trailers Mfg. was born. It all began with two big ideas: Treat your team like family and build the best product possible.

THE FIRST FEW YEARS

THE FIRST FEW YEARS

During the first years, Allen did everything in the business; welding, purchasing, bookkeeping, painting, stacking, sales, and even shipping. Allen’s oldest kids helped out wherever they could. As the years went by, Allen grew his team, which allowed him to step back from welding and focus on other areas of the business.

RAPID GROWTH: FIRST MILLION IN REVENUE

In 2003, after almost four years of business, Maxey Trailers had its first one million dollar year in production and sales. In 2004, with a total of five employees, Team Maxey moved into a new, larger facility. In 2005, the company built over 2,000 trailers and generated almost 3M in revenue. Things were going well for the company, and busy as ever.

HARD TIMES: RECESSION AND REBUILDING

After nearly a decade of rapid growth, the company faced some hard times during the economic crash of 2008. In 2009, revenues plummeted down to half of what they were in 2008. Allen was almost forced to close the doors of his business, but with the help of a few friends, Maxey Trailers pulled through. However, this set the company back by several years. It took four years just to get the company and revenue back to where it had been prior to the recession.

MAXX-D: A NATIONALLY RECOGNIZED BRAND

MAXX-D: A NATIONALLY RECOGNIZED BRAND

With lots of hard work and grit, the company rapidly outgrew its Mom-&-Pop roots and became a nationally recognized brand. Allen’s son, Kendall Kornelsen took the reins a few years ago and is leading the company to new heights. In 2021, MAXX-D Trailers has a team of well over 200 hardworking people, and we have built almost 90,000 trailers since 1999.

We know that our customers are working on great things, and we take pride in being a part of what they are doing.

We build a full lineup of open trailers including:

  • Roll-Off Trailers
  • Flatbed Trailers
  • Dump Trailers
  • Car/Equipment Trailers
  • Drop-N-Load® Trailers

It all started in 1999, when a young man named Allen Kornelsen, still in his early thirties, dared to step out and start his own business building trailers. He started the business with two big ideas: Build the best product possible, and value the people you get to work with. He worked diligently, and along the way, many others joined the team and contributed to the work with him. Now, 20 years later, the MAXX-D team has built over 85,000 trailers, many of which are still on the road today.

All our trailers are ready to go to work. We make sure our trailers are designed to handle every bit of the rated carrying capacity. We have a diverse product line-up that includes a few specialty models such as the Drop-N-Load car trailer, the Slide-X gooseneck tilt trailer, Roll-Off dump trailers, and our Skid-steer trailer. If you need to order a trailer, we offer a wide variety of options on nearly every model that you can choose from.

We are family owned, family run, and family focused. We take pride in building a great product we can both be confident in. We produce a full line-up of trailers with a few specialty trailers such as the Drop-N-Load, Slide-X, and Roll-Off dump trailers. MAXX-D is trusted by thousands – over 85,000 trailers of trusted experience. Our paint lasts longer. All trailers receiver primer standard, and we take more steps in the prep process for ultimate paint durability. With all this, we offer a 3 year limited warranty.
