About Us

Meet the Loadmaster Staff!

The Loadmaster Trailer Company specializing in boat trailers is located in beautiful Port Clinton, Ohio and is owned by Gary and Diane Straw. From 1978 to 1997, Loadmaster Trailer was a Sole Proprietorship. When the Straws purchased the company in August 1997, the new company “Loadmaster Trailer Company, LTD” was formed. Within the first year of the Straw’s ownership they were able to double trailer sales while increasing the strength and customization of each trailer. Over the years we have built thousands of boat trailers, each built to order for the boat’s specifications and customer’s needs.

As a small family business, both Gary and Diane’s children began working for Loadmaster part-time upon purchase. After graduating from college, both Gary Jr. and Megan began working full-time. Gary Jr. graduated 2003 with his degree in Human Resource Management while Megan earned her Marketing degree in 2005.

Joe Araguz, our Quality Control and Operations Manager has been with Loadmaster since 1999.
