About Us:

Cheetah Chassis is a member of the Diamatrix family of trailer manufacturers. Its roots go back to the 1930s, when Frank Strick developed the first “frameless” monocoque trailer body and revolutionized the shipping industry. Two decades later, the Strick Division of Fruehauf Trailers partnered with Malcolm McLean’s Pan-Atlantic Steamship Lines (later Sea-Land) to develop and manufacture the world’s first commercial intermodal shipping containers.

The Strick Corporation was founded in Fairless Hills, Pennsylvania in 1966. Soon after, Strick designed and built the Flexi-Van container system for the New York Central Railroad. As the Strick Corporation grew and prospered over the following decades, it continued to push the envelope of intermodal systems as they spread and standardized around the world.

In 2000, the Strick intermodal division was reorganized into Cheetah Chassis. Today our manufacturing operation is based out of Berwick, Pennsylvania. In recent years this new, nimble company has developed cutting-edge chassis products like the Bridgemaster (for carriage of heavy 20’ containers) and the Maximizer (for carriage of two 20’ containers or one 40’ container on the same trailer). We also build a variety of trailers to carry specialized cargoes such as power generators and liquid tanks.

The legacy of Frank Strick’s pioneering spirit continues today throughout our operations. We provide innovative trailer designs and manufacturing techniques that bring you the finest chassis and flatbeds on the road today
