Stellar Industries Finalizes Sale of Kiefer Manufacturing
 
(GARNER, Iowa) — Stellar Industries announced today the sale of the Kiefer line of horse, livestock and recreational trailers in Sneedville, Tenn. to local entrepreneurs David Greene Sr. and David Greene Jr. The father and son currently own and operate Greene’s Trailer & Equipment, and will take ownership of the Sneedville facility on December 31, 2015. The plant will reopen under the new ownership as Kiefer MFG. and Sales LLC. 
 
“Kiefer Manufacturing was founded by forward-thinking leaders with strong ties to the community. With this sale, the operation will once again return to a local business and be led under the guidance of long-time entrepreneurs David Greene Sr. and David Greene Jr.,” said Dave Zrostlik, Stellar Industries president. “We are confident the Sneedville facility will be in good hands and look forward to a smooth transition.” 
 
The facility in Sneedville has been producing Kiefer branded trailers for nearly 15 years, and will now also manufacture all of its product categories in the facility. The Sneedville plant has become known in the industry for its high quality workmanship, and the team is excited to build additional models to offer its loyal dealer and customer base throughout North America. 
 
“We’ve appreciated working with Stellar Industries through the purchasing process,” said David Greene Jr. “We believe the Kiefer line of trailers has a lot of potential. We strive to focus our business on service, integrity and quality. We stand behind our products, and going forward we plan to be as effective as possible, and to provide a high quality product our customers and dealers can count on.” 
 
Greene Sr. and Greene Jr. hope to begin manufacturing high quality products at the start of the New Year. A majority of employees will be retained by the organization for a well-executed, seamless transition.
