Carry-On Trailer General Manager Braden Edwards, said, “Upgrading to a powder coat paint system will enhance our production capabilities, allowing us to deliver more premium products with greater efficiency. We are grateful for the support from the Virginia Economic Development Partnership and local authorities, and we look forward to contributing to the economic growth of the region.”
