Big Tex to Rollout Trailers With Blackwood Lumber

TYLER, Texas – Big Tex Trailers now offers Blackwood Lumber as an upgrade on all flatbed

trailer models. Big Tex reached an agreement with Industrial Wood Technology (IWT), the

manufacturer of Blackwood Lumber, in January and began preparing for the May rollout.

“We’re excited to offer this great new option to our customers” said National Director of Sales

for Big Tex Trailers, Johnathan Bradley.

IWT manufactures Blackwood Lumber using the highest quality lumber, infused with industrial

grade rubber. This patent pending product provides superior traction on any surface it’s applied

to. Even in wet conditions, Blackwood Lumber prevents slipping and makes loading equipment

safer and easier.

“When considering partners to help us provide innovative and creative solutions and features for

our products, we look for companies that produce quality products and provide excellent

customer service,” Bradley said. “We feel that IWT exemplifies those qualities and look forward

to a long partnership with them.”

Along with increased traction, the rubber infusion absorbs heavy impact and protects the surface

of the board from weathering. This makes Blackwood Lumber stronger and longer lasting than

typical decking.

Blackwood Lumber is ideal for any surface that benefits from added traction, strength and

durability. This includes boat docks and residential, commercial and industrial ramps and decks,

as well as flatbed and livestock trailers.

Big Tex Trailers has been producing quality trailers over 30 years and is the largest professionalgrade

trailer manufacturer in North America. With the nation’s largest available inventory, one

of the industry’s most diverse product lines and a distribution network of over 400 dealers

throughout the United States and Canada, Big Tex Trailers has a trailer to fit just about any need.
