In 1984, Parker Trailer Sales, Inc. (now Performance Trailers by Parker) was started by Roy Parker with a primary focus on boat trailers. Parker owned a 30x40 sheet-metal shop and employed just one other person. He eventually got away from boat trailers and started building utility trailers. Parker with his one employee would build one or two trailers a day between 16 and 20 feet long. Every Friday afternoon Parker would haul a load of trailers to San Antonio. By the late 1980`s Mount Pleasant was booming and was well on its way to becoming what some call `The Utility Trailer Capital of America.` In 1987, Parker made a decision that changed the course of his production process. Despite skepticism, Performance Trailers became what he says was a significant player in the development of utility trailer manufacturers` use of MIG (Metal Insert Gas) welding.
