Road Systems, Inc. Becomes Con-way Manufacturing

Name change aligns Con-way’s Trailer Manufacturing Division with parent brand


Searcy, Ark.—Aug. 20, 2013—Road Systems, Inc., a trailer manufacturer and subsidiary of Con-way Inc. has changed its name to Con-way Manufacturing, a subsidiary of freight transportation and logistics services company Con-way Inc.

Con-way Manufacturing produces trailing equipment for the less-than-truckload and full-truckload over-the-road freight transportation markets. In addition to manufacturing factory-new trailers, the company also specializes in trailer refurbishing, and applying specialized processes, tooling and expertise to refurbish and rebuild used trailers to like-new condition, while recycling up to 80 percent of existing trailer components and material.

By aligning more closely with the overall Con-way brand, Con-way Manufacturing is leveraging the long-standing reputation for quality and service of parent company, Con-way Inc., and its operating units, less-than-truckload carrier Con-way Freight, nationwide full-truckload carrier, Con-way Truckload, and global supply chain services provider Menlo Worldwide Logistics.

Founded in 1977, today Con-way Manufacturing is the exclusive provider of freight trailers and trailing equipment for Con-way Freight, and provides trailer-refurbishing services to Con-way Truckload. The company also markets and sells its products to independent trucking companies. “We’ve been known in the industry as Con-way Manufacturing for years now,” said Lynn Reinbolt, president of Con-way Manufacturing. “For our employees and customers, it was the right time to formally change the name of the company. We have long shared Con-way’s core values and commitment to excellence in the transportation industry.”
