Uphus has a long and diverse career with Felling Trailers Inc. He joined the company in June of 1999 as a team member in the Finishing Department. Shortly after that he started welding and progressed through all production areas, building all different trailer models. In 2001, Felling’s Parts & Service business was rapidly expanding and at this time Uphus made the transition from the shop floor into the position of parts, purchasing, and warranty manager for the company. He held this position until mid-2004 when an inside sales position opened and he quickly jumped at the opportunity.

In November, 2014 Uphus moved to Tennessee as a territory manager where he helped expand the dealer network in the southeastern United States.

"Nathan has always been a highly motivated and ambitious person. He has taken on each new role in the company with great dedication. We are lucky to have him at Felling Trailers," said Merle J. Felling, founder of Felling Trailers Inc.

With taking on the role of sales manager, Uphus will relocate back to Minnesota where he can take an active part in the day-to-day operations. “I have the utmost confidence that Nathan will provide the leadership and support that is needed for our sales team’s continued success," said Pat Jennissen, vice president of sales and marketing.
