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.”

Stoops’ team grills up dinner for Ronald McDonald House guests

A group of Stoops Freightliner-Quality Trailer employees recently benefited a local charitable organization with the use of the company’s new grill trailer.
On March 30, nine employees volunteered to serve dinner to the guest at the Ronald McDonald House in Indianapolis. The group served a dinner menu consisting of hamburgers, hot dogs, coney sauce, potato salad, condiments, fruit salad, cookies, sweet tea and lemonade.
As guests at the Ronald McDonald House typically come and go while visiting their loved ones in the hospital, the Stoops team was sure to leave behind plenty of leftovers so those who weren’t able to attend the dinner were able to enjoy food after returning to the facility.
The event was an eye-opening experience for Stoops volunteers, said Mike Moore, Stoops business development manager.
“The staff gave our employees a tour of the entire campus,” Moore said. “Our employees were so appreciative that Stoops Freightliner is giving back to our community and to be able to play a big part in it.”
Representing Stoops at the event, included: Brian McCoy, Grant McCoy, Mike Moore, Mike Miller, Tom Nolan, Ron Bruce, Rick Garrigus, Lora Howard and Pam Lindsey.
Serving families since 1982, the Ronald McDonald House of Indiana provides a safe haven and home-away-from-home for parents and siblings of seriously ill or injured children. Since opening, the facility has housed over 35,000 families.
