Leonard Truck & Trailer History
Leonard Truck & Trailer, Inc., began in 1963 in North Jackson with modest backyard beginnings when Stan and Peg Leonard began dealing with horses and a few horse trailer manufacturers. The company experienced moderate growth over the next twenty-three years, with the addition of trailer manufacturers and inventory. In 1986, Stan and Peg's son, Clint, joined Leonard Truck and Trailer as a sales representative.
During the next several years, LT&T continued to grow with the addition of many new trailer manufacturers and by creating what would become the largest parts and after market trailer sales department in the Ohio, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia areas. It was at this time that Clint (who is now the company President) began expanding the LT&T product line by offering living quarter trailers, enclosed car and cargo trailers, dump trailers, utility and construction trailers, as well as heavy equipment trailers. As Leonard Truck & Trailer continued to expand their selection of all types of trailers, it became apparent that a move to a larger, more convenient and more visible location was in order.
The Recent Years
In early 2001, Leonard Truck & Trailer moved to its new location on I-76 at Bailey Rd. (Exit #57), still in North Jackson, Ohio. The new location, within an hour drive of Cleveland, Canton, and Pittsburgh has allowed the company's rapid growth to continue. The convenient location features a 24,000 square foot facility, including an 11,000 square foot service center that features four 100' drive through bays, plus an extensive parts department, giving LT&T the capacity to repair any trailer-related problem or to customize your trailer in just about any way you can dream up.
This newer, larger facility allows for a greater selection of in stock trailers, an aftermarket display area in an indoor showroom, a comprehensive trailer parts and service department, plus a custom vinyl graphics department. All of this ensures that customers find the best trailer for their needs and receive the best and most comprehensive service possible.
