The Truck Country family is growing.
On May 23, officials with McCoy Group Inc — the parent company of Truck Country — announced an agreement has been reached to purchase Stoops Freightliner – Quality Trailer, based in Indianapolis, Indiana. The sale will include all six Stoops locations in Indiana and Ohio, as well as Stoops NationaLease and JES Leasing LLC. The transaction will be effective on or around July 1, 2014.
With the acquisition of Stoops Freightliner, Truck Country will now own and operate 18 full-service Freightliner dealerships, serving customers in Iowa, Wisconsin, Indiana and Ohio. This growth will allow the organization to expand sales, service, parts, and operational support to customers across the country.
Meanwhile, McCoy NationaLease will double in size, establishing a wider leasing network for their valued customers.
The convergence of these two established and successful family-owned dealership groups creates a pinnacle within the Freightliner community. The McCoy Group and the Stoops organizations have much in common, growing their businesses through years of hard work, integrity above reproach, and an unparalleled commitment to their talented employees and valued customers.
Current Stoops owner, Jeff Stoops, will remain with the company as president to help oversee the transition to the new ownership.
Stoops Freightliner sells Freightliner, Sprinter and Western Star trucks, in addition to Wabash, Transcraft, Timpte and East trailers. Stoops locations are all Elite Support certified, and include new and used truck sales, full service, parts, and leasing.
