Firm that builds custom horse trailers adding 50 Iowa jobs

CRESCO (AP) -

Workers at Featherlite Trailers' plant in northeast Iowa will soon begin customizing their horse trailers to add living quarters, and as a result, fifty jobs will added.

The company already sells the trailers that include space for horses and their owners, but a separate company in Indiana had been building the living space since 2007.

Featherlite Operations Manager Scott Milburn says demand for the trailers with living quarters was strong enough that the company decided to add the work to its plant in Cresco.

The company offers eight different floorplans of trailers with different arrangements of kitchen, restroom and sleeping space.
