A Long-Time Supporter of Titan Trailers’ Innovation and Technology


Second generation trucker, Gary Krygsman, is proud of the fact that his family’s trucking business acquired the industry’s first ever custom-built Titan THINWALL™ trailer.

“In the mid-1990s, my dad, Peter, was looking around for a lighter trailer to carry bulk materials like grain and feed products,” Mr. Krygsman says. “He had already purchased some custom-built post and panel B-Train Hoppers from Titan’s owners, the Kloepfers, who were fellow farmers and family acquaintances, in 1993 – so we were aware of Titan quality. Dad asked them if they could design and build a lighter trailer with smooth sides and a walking floor for our application. Out of their meetings and consultations came the world’s first extruded horizontal paneled, smooth-sided inside and out Titan THINWALL trailer.”

The Krygsman family took delivery of its first Titan THINWALL trailer in 1996 and quickly ordered a second. Today, as the owner and manager of his own trucking business, Norkel Carriers Inc., Gary Krygsman remains a loyal Titan customer.
Norkel Carriers Inc., has a fleet of five trucks and seven trailers. Five drivers, including three of Gary’s brothers, carry all kinds of loads all over Ontario. “We go as far north as Kirkland Lake, as far east as Ottawa and Cornwall and as far west as Windsor,” says Mr. Krygsman. “Most of our destinations are within an 8 hour radius.”

Two of Norkel’s largest customers at present are mushroom growers, for whom he hauls mushroom compost; and a major landscape supply company, for whom he carries wood/bark mulch. The company also carries grain over the winter months. Gary Krygsman says that his Titan THINWALL walking floor trailers are tailor-made for these three applications. In addition to his five Titan THINWALL trailers, he has two freight trailers that are used to haul sawdust.

Krygsman appreciates Titan custom-built philosophy
Gary Krygsman remains impressed with Titan’s ability to incorporate specified modifications into the design of the trailers he has acquired from the company. He says it is gratifying to see how some of his requests, like lights inside of the trailer and brake-light modifications, are now standard equipment on all Titan trailers. “Titan really works with what you want, or don’t want, in the design of your trailer – the end-product truly is custom-built to each customer’s specs,” he says.

Durability and ease of maintenance are two Titan features that keep Norkel Carriers’ drivers on the road. “We handle all routine maintenance onsite and we give them weekly brushless chemical washes in our bays, as well as spring and fall acid washes,” says Gary Krygsman. “As a result, all of our Titan THINWALL trailers continue to look as new today as the day they were delivered.”
