Talbert Manufacturing has debuted the 55-Ton Roller Paver (55CC-RP) heavy-haul lowboy trailer for enhanced load versatility and minimal permit costs.

Started in 1967, BWS has grown from a second generation family run business into a successful corporation building state-of-the-art trailers and bodies for about every application imaginable--agriculture, construction, forestry, oil & gas, commercial trucking, and specialized trailers. Fast forward to 2017 and it seems hard to believe that BWS started in the manor that it did, in the small village of Centreville, NB and has grown exponentially over time. This was a single person operation in its inception, but no longer is that the truth. From small, humble beginnings in an effort to provide a service to the local area, Bernie’s Welding Shop was born. Burney McDougall started by making small custom projects for farm and forestry. Gradually, projects like outfitting trucks with plows and dump bodies came to the fruition.
