Industry News ,


COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa Polar King Mobile (PKM) announced that Jim Hawk Truck Trailers, Inc., has become a dealer representing North America’s first affordable small refrigerated trailer solution in the Midwest, according to Christian Aitken, PKM executive vice president.

“Jim Hawk Truck Trailers, based in Council Bluffs, IA, started as a single trailer sales dealership in 1972 and has become one of the largest and most respected dealers of semi-truck trailers throughout the Midwest with nine locations,” said Aitken. “Over the past 50 years, this family-owned business has provided quality customer service and is a perfect partner for Polar King Mobile as we expand our footprint in the United States.”

Jim Hawk III, the president of Jim Hawk Truck Trailers, added, “We are excited about expanding into new niche market areas with diversified and unique product offerings such as Polar King Mobile’s. The mini-reefer trailers will help us connect with a new market and respond to  a new set of customers we have not been able to serve previously. We are always looking to be progressive and find ways to grow our business and customer base.”

Polar King Mobile provides 8 to 16-foot small, refrigerated trailers that are both affordable and industry leading in all respects. “The addition of Jim Hawk Truck Trailers takes the PKM line deeper into the heart of the Midwest and Great Plains,” Aitken said. “Our products complement those of Polar King and Polar Leasing by providing a long absent solution to the marketplace. We are excited about the opportunity Jim Hawk Truck Trailers brings to make these products more widely known and available.”

The Polar King Mobile 110V (15 AMP) refrigerated trailers are designed and engineered specifically for outdoor and over-the-road use. Polar King’s 100 percent seamless fiberglass design provides a continuous surface with rounded insulated corners to promote a sanitary environment. The durable, NSF-approved non-slip flooring system greatly reduces the risk of slips and falls. Since the unit is completely seamless, it can quickly be cleaned with a hose and there’s no risk of damage to the insulation.  According to Polar King Mobile, the unit will look factory new with regular care and cleaning.

Aitken concluded, “We are creating a national network of value-added resellers by recruiting the best trailer distributors from the North American Trailer Dealers Association. A national network that includes dealers such as Jim Hawk Truck Trailers will provide the kind of fast, professional and knowledgeable service that our customers want.”

Polar King Mobile is a member of the Polar King family of companies. PKM does not sell direct to the public.
