Happy 20th Anniversary, Pine Hill Trailers!

The Pine Hill Trailers 20th Anniversary celebration featured food, fun, and information.

Dan Petersheim, owner and founder of Pine Hill Trailers in Gordonville, Pennsylvania, is no stranger to hard work. 

Before starting the company, he built trailers at his home, and word of his expertise and excellent work grew, leading to the founding of Pine Hill Trailers in 2000, moving into the shed-moving trailer business full-time.

Today, the company employs 48 people in five divisions: Shed Trailer Manufacturing, Custom Builds and Fabrication, New and Used Trailer Sales, Service, and Parts.

The company celebrated its 20th anniversary on March 18 with a daylong event at its U.S. Route 30 location. Rain throughout the day didn’t dampen the spirits of Petersheim, his employees, or any of the well-wishers who stopped by to celebrate.

“The first word that comes to mind when I think about this anniversary is ‘humbled,’” says Petersheim. “Over the past week, the employees have been great getting ready for this event. It’s overwhelming how positive everyone has been.”

The event was originally scheduled for March 2020 but had to be postponed due to COVID-19.

“I’ve known these guys for years,” says Merrit Eaton, founding partner of Heritage Building Co. in Salisbury, North Carolina, who was one of many folks to stop by and congratulate Pine Hill on its 20 years of business. “I’ve bought a lot of equipment from them. It’s great to be here and celebrate.”

“Congratulations to Dan Petersheim and everyone at Pine Hill Manufacturing on your 20-year anniversary,” says Marty Boltres, publisher of Shed Builder Magazine. “From the very beginning, Pine Hill has been a leader for the shed industry. Their contribution to the growth of this industry has been invaluable.

“From the inception of the magazine, Pine Hill pledged their support and confidence in our vision for a trade journal for this industry.”

Throughout the day, visitors enjoyed a parts sale in the retail store, earning chances to enter a drawing for prizes. Food and drinks were provided by On My Grind Coffee and Lancaster Burger Co.

Inside Pine Hill’s new service garage, sponsors set up informational tables, an axle service Q&A took place, and a dunk tank drew a crowd. Pine Hill employees Reuben Miller and Brian Bowman, along with Petersheim, took a turn being dunked for donations. 

Reuben Miller waits to see if he’s going to go in the water.

The fund collected were matched by Pine Hill and donated to The Factory Ministries, a hub for connecting needs and resources for individuals and adults who find themselves under-resourced and struggling with issues of poverty, located in Paradise, Pennsylvania.

 Tours of Pine Hill’s operations were also given throughout the day.

The celebration ended with a banquet that evening at the Country Barn event center in Lancaster.
