Hitch-Hiker Mfg. is celebrating 40 years of building custom food trailers for the amusement industry.  Jeff and Holly Swartz have newly remodeled offices and a revamped facility that will be showcased early this summer at an open house for customers, venders and industry affiliates. 

     They told Carnival there have been some major changes internally at Hitch-Hiker, the biggest being the recruiting and hiring of their new plant supervisor Jeff Shaffer from Niles Ohio.  He has 25 years of manufacturing and engineering experience and specializes in quality control.
