Peregrine, Inc. has been a collaborative partner with Rivers Metal Products for more than 30 years. Through the creation of a quad-steer trailer between Rivers Metal Products and Cushman Motors, Peregrine, Inc. was established to develop the line of material handling equipment further. Peregrine, Inc. now designs, finishes, assembles, and distributes positive tracking trailers.
Rivers Metal Products collaborates with Peregrine, Inc. to create these trailers by providing metal fabrication services including cutting, forming, and welding various trailer parts. The two main trailers developed are the Quad-Steer TRACKER™ and the Falcon II.
“Rivers Metal Products has been an important part of our company’s history,” said Troy Rivers, President of Peregrine, Inc. “Their expertise and skills in metal fabrication and commitment to quality make them an ideal partner for our trailer production.”
This trailer is considered to be the pioneer of positive tracking trailers. The Quad-Steer TRACKER™ is built with high-quality materials and can trace a tow vehicle’s path, allowing it to hug corners and turn around in less space than most trailers. The savings of valuable space make the Quad-Steer TRACKER™ a cost-effective option compared to traditional trailers.
The Falcon II is a trailer designed specifically for lean manufacturing environments. The trailer is modular in design with the ability to convert into a conventional caster-steel trailer. By utilizing the same positive tracking design as the Quad-Steer TRACKER™, the Falcon II trailer takes up minimal aisle and floor space.
Rivers Metal Products also collaborates with Peregrine, Inc. to develop custom trailers. Trailers can be custom-built with various deck sizes, load capacities, and accessories. Rivers Metal Products provides design assistance and makes recommendations to create solutions that satisfy customer needs.
In addition to the trailers, Rivers Metal Products also partners with Peregrine, Inc. to produce racks, shelves, enclosures, and other customized accessories.
