BREA, CA – November 24, 2015 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Victor Equipment, long a pioneer in the development of light alloy replacement wheels for Porsches, has introduced its newest custom wheel, the Endurance.

“The new Endurance design has had an excellent response from our customers. We employed our ball cut milling technology to create side milled spokes to create the stunning design for this wheel, ” observed Victor president Terence Scheckter. Scheckter also pointed out that the Endurance wheel wouldn’t be possible without Victor Equipment’s cutting edge rotary forging technology. “Rotary forging, while more complex, produces a wheel of exceptional strength. That enabled us to spec relatively narrow spokes for Endurance’s signature look. Rotary forging also gave us the design flexibility to provide adequate clearance for those big brakes, suspension components and body parts, always a challenge with Porsches.”

The Endurance wheel makes its debut at the SEMA auto industry trade show in Las Vegas, Nevada, November 3-6. 2015.

Endurance wheels are sized in 18, 19 and 20-inch diameters to fit Porsche coupes and sedans. Finishes in both dramatic silver with mirror cut face and milled spokes and matte black with milled spokes emphasizes the pertinent design elements.

The company website provides photos and details on all the wheels. The online Fitment Guide at for example, enables Porsche owners to identify each model and size that is a precisely compatible match for their year and model. Wheel descriptions provide a full technical summary on each wheel since looks alone never tell the whole story.

Officials of Universal Trailer Corporation Celebrate Construction Start of New Manufacturing Facility

24 11 2015

BRISTOL, IN – November 24, 2015 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Today Universal Trailer Corporation officially marked the start of construction of an entirely new, 200,000 square-foot, state-of-the-art manufacturing plant with a celebration involving public and private officials involved in the project.

Last Spring UTC decided to locate the plant in Elkhart County, Indiana, where it has other manufacturing facilities. Various sites around the country had been bidding for the project. Universal Trailer operates a number of plants nationwide.

“A project of this size and scope attracts attention and reflects our commitment to the trailer industry,” said Terry Carlson, CEO of Universal Trailer Corp. “We were heavily recruited by other states to relocate our new facility. In the end, it was the quality and dedication of the Elkhart County workforce that was the overarching reason to stay and build our new plant right here in Bristol.”

What is unique about this construction is that “it will feature advanced manufacturing techniques not currently used in the cargo trailer industry and will greatly improve our quality, output and working environment for our employees,” said Richard Pfleging, Vice President of Manufacturing – East, Universal Trailer Cargo Group, Inc. “We are basically investing in a new manufacturing model. This is a big step in bringing a more efficient solution to cargo trailer manufacturing. It will greatly improve our service capabilities and product offering to our dealer network and end-users.”

The facility is going up on a 43-acre site adjacent to the Indiana Toll Road (I-80 I-90). The site is being developed for drainage and other necessities that would allow for another 200,000 square feet of expansion in the near future. Pfleging said UTC’s current success and growth trajectory has given it confidence that the timing is right for this kind of investment to succeed and to spur even more growth in terms of additional construction.

“While the economy has gotten better, there hasn’t been much from-the-ground-up plant construction of this size and scale of investment in our industry,” said Pfleging. “But the Universal team has made this happen and we’re going to continue to make it happen in a way no one has seen before.”
