Stoops Western Star of Ohio opens in Wapakoneta

Wapakoneta, Ohio — The Stoops brand continues to expand in Ohio, with the addition of a new Western Star dealership.

Effective April 1, Stoops Western Star of Ohio took over operations of the dealership formerly known as Kinstle Western Star in Wapakoneta.

Stoops Western Star is affiliated with Stoops Freightliner-Quality Trailer, which operates nine dealerships in Ohio and Indiana, including locations in Lima and Dayton, Ohio.

The move merges a pair of family-owned businesses, as Stoops acquires Kinstle from owners Mike and Barb Kinstle. Stoops’ parent company, the McCoy Group, traces its roots back to 1958 and is owned by third-generation members of the McCoy family.

“On behalf of the entire Stoops team, I’d like to offer our sincerest thanks to Mike and Barb Kinstle for the great service they have provided to the trucking and transportation community over the past 38 years,” said Brian McCoy, president of Stoops Western Star. “We are excited to pick up right where they left off — providing expert service, a wide array of top-quality parts, and a sales team dedicated to meeting and exceeding customer needs.”

Customers can expect staffing to remain the same at Stoops Western Star, as all former Kinstle employees have been welcomed into the Stoops family.

Meanwhile, updates are planned for the building, including new signage, as well as a refurbished parts showroom and updated service facilities for increased service and repair capacity.

Additionally, offerings in the areas of parts and service will expand. Leveraging the Stoops brand and buying power, the best in Daimler parts and service will be available to Stoops Western Star customers.

Stoops Freightliner-Quality Trailer (a division of Truck Country®) is part of the largest Freightliner/Western Star truck dealership group in the U.S. Truck Country and Stoops dealerships serve customers at 25 locations in Indiana, Iowa, Minnesota, Ohio and Wisconsin. For 60 years, Truck Country has offered new and used medium- and heavy-duty trucks, expert service, an extensive parts inventory and helpful financing options. Corporate offices are located in Dubuque, Iowa.

Stoops Freightliner-Quality Trailer adds MAC Trailer to lineup

Indianapolis, Ind. — Stoops Freightliner – Quality Trailer is excited to announce the addition of MAC Trailer to its line of trailer offerings.

The incorporation of MAC Trailer adds to an already strong lineup for Stoops, which also includes Wabash, Transcraft and Stoughton brands. Stoops will market MAC Trailer at its Anderson, Indianapolis and Fort Wayne, Ind. dealerships, as well as at its location in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

Stoops will specialize in selling MAC Flatbed and Dump trailers, and will stock inventory Road Warrior flatbed and MVP-MACLOCK™ dump trailers. Through advanced design and the incorporation of alternative component-materials, MAC trailers provide for enhanced fuel economy, maximum performance, reduced maintenance costs and increased payloads.

Stoops Trailer Manager Mark Hall said the addition of MAC is a natural fit.

“The fit is good for us,” Hall said, noting Stoops’ sister company, Foodliner, is a customer of MAC’s liquid tank trailers. “We have seen how well MAC trailers performs in the real-world, and have confidence in offering them to our own customers.”

Stoops and MAC have similar histories. The companies are family-owned operations, with an eye toward the future.

“The big thing with MAC is they believe in innovation, as they develop ways to build better trailers,” Hall added. “These two companies fit together for what we are looking to achieve in the marketplace.”
