Dorsey Trailer Update

The long-awaited sale of Dorsey Trailer of Elba may soon be finalized by a federal judge in Montgomery.

The judge ordered a hearing for June 5th for the sale of the bankrupt company.

Pitts Enterprises of Phoenix City has offered an undisclosed amount to purchase the one-time largest, private employer in Coffee County.

Dorsey has been manufacturing truck trailers for more than 80-years.

An attorney close to negotiations says that all parties involved have tentatively agreed to the terms of the sale.

He hopes the court will sign off on the deal by the end of next month.
