About Us

STS carries a complete line of tractor-trailers, heavy and light-duty truck equipment, Kalmar Ottawa Yard Trucks, and an expansive selection of parts inventory to fit the needs of its customers. We have branches in SyracuseBuffaloRochester, and Albany, New York 

History of STS Trailer & Truck Equipment

More than six decades ago, STS began as a small repair shop for trailers and truck bodies. In 1976, George & Barbara Jacobs purchased the business, and the company became Syracuse Trailer Sales. In the early 1980s, George & Barbara's twin sons, Shawn and Steve, joined the family business as full-time salespeople. Looking to offer even more to our customers, Syracuse Trailer Sales changed its name in 1989 to STS Trailer & Truck Equipment to accommodate its expanding Truck Equipment division. Throughout the 90s and early 2000s, STS expanded its geographic footprint across Upstate New York, opening stores in Buffalo, Rochester, and Albany. Today, Shawn and Steve Jacobs continue to run the family business and continue to offer the same level of customer service and industry leadership.
