Trailer manufacturer relocates to Grand Junction

A teardrop trailer manufacturer has relocated its operations from Denver to Grand Junction, the Grand Junction Economic Partnership announced.

Timberleaf Trailers has moved into a 4,500-square-foot facility. The company builds three trailers a month, but has capacity at its new facility to increase production to eight trailers a month.

Owner Kevin Molick and his wife relocated to Grand Junction. They were joined in the business by a son, Alex, and an employee originally from Georgia. Molick since has hired two more employees.

“We came over a few months ago to interview people,” Kevin Molick said. “The talent here is really good, better than in Denver.”

Molick said 75 percent to 80 percent of trailer orders come from out of state. At least 50 percent of customers prefer to pick up their trailers and add camping in the Rocky Mountain region to their trips, he said. Molick said he hopes to build a rental fleet to take advantage of camping opportunities in the region.
