STS Trailer & Truck Equipment was founded in 1949. We are a family owned and operated company. We are a full service and parts facility committed to customer satisfaction.
We have a complete line of trailers, both light duty, equipment, tractor trailers, and a expansive selection of truck equipment to fit the needs of our customers. We have branches in Syracuse, Buffalo, Rochester and Albany, New York.
More than six decades ago, our company 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. Our company's roots began with trailer sales and truck equipment. Our founder started working with truck body kits from Hewitt-Lucas Body Co., Inc., with STS offering this service to our customers for many years as well as offering new and used trailers, including product lines Dorsey, Transcraft, and Ravens.
In the 1970s and 1980s, the company became three separate entities: Syracuse Trailer Sales, Syracuse Trailer Service and Syracuse Trailer Leasing.
In the early 1980s, George & Barbara's twin sons, Shawn and Steve, joined the family business as full time sales members. Looking to offer even more to our customers, taking advantage of the local Fruehauf trailer factory branch closing, Syracuse Trailer Sales changed its name in 1989 to STS Trailer & Truck Equipment to accommodate picking up the Morgan, Reading, R&S, and Fisher product lines that became available.
In 2012, Shawn and Steve bought the business from their father. Today, Shawn and Steve continue to run the family business. From humble beginnings, the business now has 80 employees and 4 locations serving New York State.
In 1996 and 1999, STS Trailer & Truck Equipment began to expand. The expansion plan began with opening branches in Buffalo and Utica. During this time, STS also opened a branch in Scranton, Pennsylvania.
The Buffalo branch remains open today. Since then, the company closed the Utica and Scranton branches and opened branches in Albany, NY and Rochester, NY. Today the 4 locations in upstate New York all offer complete trailer & truck equipment sales and service to support their customers' needs.
STS Trailer & Truck Equipment has grown a lot in its 68+ year history. While the Jacobs family continues its commitment to dedicated, satisfying service, the business now sells anything organizations or individuals would need for their trailers and trucks.
All of our facilities have incorporated vertical integration wherever possible to enhance the entire repair and fabrication operation, providing us with the opportunity to optimize our quality assurance procedures and improve production times. We also incorporate the latest equipment for premier, long-life fabrication of trailer components.
Our 38,000 sq. ft. Syracuse location houses an expansive manufacturing and fabrication operation for trailer parts, custom trailer fabrication and trailer painting. We offer everything from fabrication to the complete refurbishing of equipment, trucks, and trailers.
The 15,000 sq. ft. Albany facility is dedicated to supporting our network of STS Clients throughout eastern New York, Western Vermont, and Massachusetts.
From snow plows to accessories and much more, our inventory is on display in our showroom. In addition to the showroom, STS Trailer & Truck Equipment has a parts department, service department, sales department and accounting department.
From truck equipment to trailers for sale, truck repair and all the parts you'll need, Shawn, Steve and all of the friendly, knowledgeable staff are here to help. To request a quote on what you need...
