Trail King supports local technology programs

Trail King Industries, located Mitchell, South Dakota, is a U.S. manufacturer of a complete line of trailers to serve a variety of applications for markets such as construction, transportation, and specialized hauling. Trail King Industries also supports local students involved in welding and trade skills by partnering with technical schools, like Mitchell Technical Institute (MTI).

The Welding and Manufacturing Technology (WMT) program at MTI prepares students for rewarding and satisfying careers in highly technical manufacturing environments. 

Trail King and MTI make a powerful partnership in the Midwest. In 2019, 16 graduates of the WMT program are entering the field; two of which are new hires at Trail King. 


The program began in 2012 with just eight students. With an Advisory Board of 20, and successful partnerships with industry leaders like Trail King, the program enrollment has grown to more than 70 in just 7 years. Industry relationships help the program excel in areas of material, curriculum, equipment, and student-employer relationship. Trail King offers up to $4,000 per year for qualifying candidates and hands-on training, providing materials and engineering drawings for the students to build a TKLP TAG trailer. Internships are also available to WMT students. Graduates of this program gain all the skills to put them on the path of success and leadership in the industry.

Trail King, being a longtime supporter since the program’s inception, has helped students consistently move forward in advanced manufacturing training. For more, visit
