Stillwell opens hoist manufacturing plant in Cleburne, TX

Cleburne, TX | November 7th, 2022 – For the last 3 years, Stillwell has been manufacturing dump trailers hoists in Peoria, IL. To better service their customer base, the company relocated its hoist operations to Cleburne, Texas. This allows for quicker transit times to the large volume of trailer manufacturers located in the states of Texas and Oklahoma. Started in December of 2021, the move was made official when the property was acquired in June of 2022.

Stillwell has made their name on the innovation of their hydraulic services and has given the same attention to their hoists. Each hoist design is Professional Engineer Stamped, FEA Tested, and all welders are Weld Engineer Certified. While the Cleburne location will primarily manufacture hoists, additional equipment has been purchased to expand Stillwell’s hydraulic cylinder manufacturing to Texas in addition to Minnesota.

In addition to hoists, Stillwell plans to expand its steel manufacturing capabilities to adjacent product lines such as fenders and ramps. “Opening this site is key for our growth. It enables us to not only make more hoists, but it gives us the flexibility to make many other products as well,” Zac Stillwell, Vice President of Operations.

Stillwell has seen year over year growth. From 2018 to 2021, the company has increased 929%. The company’s growth has not only been financial, but Stillwell has grown its employee roster to keep up with manufacturing demands. This same growth will be extended to the greater Cleburne area, as Stillwell has added manufacturing jobs and looks to expand its operations in Texas.
