Bloomer Trailers’ 20th anniversary, Legacy members, and Spicer Gripp results.
Statistics show that 96 percent of businesses fail within 10 years, but Bloomer Trailers has stood solid for 20 years under the leadership of Texas’ Randy Bloomer.
In 1998, Bloomer changed the horse trailer industry for the better. Involved in the Western industry and having experience with horse trailer sales, Bloomer knew that livestock safety was a huge component of a trailer. He set out to modernize and revolutionize the industry. Now, 20 years later, the Bloomer Trailers brand is not only used by world champions in every Western discipline, it is also being used by top Billboard musicians, race car drivers, and more.
“We have never stopped challenging ourselves to find a better or safer way to protect our customers and their livestock,” Bloomer said.
In 2002, Bloomer Trailers started building a state-of-the-art production facility in Central Texas to serve as a convenient location for dealers, customers, and their vendors. Upon completion in 2003, Bloomer Trailers moved more than 40 employees and their families to Salado, Texas, to help continue the craftsmanship that their customers expected.
Today, Bloomer Trailers has more than 80 full-time employees who are proud of the brand they build. Although the brand has grown tremendously, it still practices the principles the company was built on. You will still see Randy Bloomer working at shows and visiting with customers, making a point to be involved in the industry.
Bloomer Trailers has offered its Bloomer Trailers High School Rodeo Team since 2007, now with 33 youth athletes. These athletes are not only Bloomer customers–they are the best athletes in and out of the arena. Teaching these young athletes how to interview, take pictures, acquire sponsorships, and more has been Bloomer Trailers way of giving back. Some of the youth athletes have gone on to win World Championships, become doctors, or have their own families, most of which still own a Bloomer Trailer.
Bloomer Trailers is involved in a large majority of equine sports. They are the official trailer of the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo, World Series of Team Roping, The American Rodeo, National Reined Cow Horse Association, Pendleton Roundup, Texas High School Rodeo Association, and the Bob Feist Invitational.
As a part of their 20-year anniversary, Bloomer Trailers, has decided to celebrate the memories that have been made in a Bloomer Trailer. Customers have sent in pictures of their trailers from every decade to show that their Bloomer can handle the miles. Although the brand is growing older, the passion is stronger than ever. As for the future, they expect “only the best.”
