About Us

Meet the Loadmaster Staff!

Loadmaster Trailer Co. Ltd., located in beautiful Port Clinton, Ohio is a family owned and operated manufacturing business specializing in custom boat trailers. Gary and Diane Straw purchased the company in August of 1997. 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 Loadmaster has built thousands of high-quality boat trailers, each trailer having been built to order for the boat’s specifications and customer’s needs.

Small, family-owned business

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

Loadmaster has certainly grown and diversified over the years, however the one thing that has remained consistent is the Straw family’s dedication to building an excellent, strong, quality product with a stellar focus on customer service.
