Edmond-based Clubhouse Trailer Co., LLC, is on pace to top its 2017 production number of 10 custom marching band trailers with at least 23 projects expected to be completed by year-end 2018. Clubhouse has delivered eight trailers so far in 2018, bringing the total number of trailers completed since inception of the company eight years ago to 28.
In anticipation of this growth, Clubhouse has expanded its physical location, invested in production tools and processes that allow for increased efficiency and added a new team member, Chase Hillmon. The Clubhouse team now includes Hillman, Darrell "Papa" Hadley, and owners and founders Jeff Hadley and Drew Taylor.
Clubhouse Trailer was founded in 2010 by Jeff Hadley and Taylor. The two "Band Dads" started the company after the successful rollout of Bulldog One at Edmond Memorial High School, where their children were in the band program. Knowing there had to be a better way, Hadley and Taylor created the only company in the U.S. focusing on the transportation and logistics of the Marching Arts.
The Clubhouse team has completed projects for band and marching programs throughout the U.S., including The Cavaliers, a World Class Drum Corps International Corps from Rosemont, Ill. and the University of Kentucky Wildcat Marching Band. The Clubhouse team continues to consult with other programs on full buildout projects or DIY options for building trailers as well as supplying custom kits of the most popular Clubhouse products.
