TriMas Corporation (Nasdaq: TRS) - a diversified manufacturer of engineered and applied products - today announced that Cequent Performance Products, Inc. reached an agreement with Ford Motor Company to supply a patented cross bed towing system to be offered as an option on 2011 production Super Duty trucks.

Using designs from its REESE(R) Signature Series fifth wheel and gooseneck hitch family, Cequent customized a unique frame mounted cross bed towing system designed for towing gooseneck and fifth wheel style trailers. Using a patented "drop in" gooseneck hitch ball or the patented, customized fifth wheel hitch, users can now pull trailers up to 25K pounds (depending on rated vehicle capability) using a system that is integrated with pickup trucks built at the Fo rd Kentucky Truck Plant factory.

"The combination of Cequent, the leader in the towing industry, and Ford, the nation's leading truck producer, complements each company's existing streng ths and provides customers the best product offering available in the market place," says Tom Benson, President of Cequent Performance Products. "It has long been our goal to work with manufacturers to make towing trailers easier. Integrating a specially designed under bed cross member allows for specific integration with the truck frame and a secure towing experience."
