Hicks Manufacturing, LLC, of Minden, LA is a manufacturer of aluminum dump body, frameless, and frametype trailers. Our revolutionary and patented design replaces welding with Huck fasteners to address the age-old battle of aluminum cracking. All body components are carefully engineered to achieve strong connection and minimum weight. Hicks will last longer, is easier to repair, and will maximize payloads.
The Hicks family has been in the dump trailer industry for 70+ years. We understand how painful costly maintenance and repairs are. Hicks helps you increase your profits, delivering payload at a price to make your customers happy. Glen Hicks recognized as early as the 1950s that bolted joints could perform in areas where welded joints fail. Aluminum alloys used in extrusions lose much of their yield strength when welded. Hicks is built using only Huck fasteners. By not welding, we have no areas of low yield strength which is where competitors’ units fail. Hicks will provide you with lower weight, a beautiful finish, and greater durability.
The Hicks Family has served thousands of aggregate haulers over decades. We are dedicated to maximizing your trailers' uptime and payload.
