CTS Custom Trailers is pleased to announce that Jon Smiley and Ronnie Moran have joined our team to fill critical roles in our new and growing organization. Formerly with MYCO Trailers of Bradenton, Fla., Jon Smiley and Ronnie Moran add senior level expertise and decades of industry experience to the company. Smiley is our Vice President of Sales, and Moran is our new Director of Operations. Though both reside in Southwest Florida, neither will be relocating to Iowa, but will work closely with Lakin Curry-Thoren, our General Manager.
CTS Custom Trailers is owned by Jason Curry and is a new division of Curry’s Inc, that has been servicing and selling heavy-duty trucks and trailers since 1998. The Iowa facility, which employs 60 people, has 30,000 square feet of manufacturing space and 12,000 square feet of office space on its sprawling 32-acre property.
“We knew that to ensure CTS’s success, we needed the best of the best in the industry on our team,” says Curry. “To build a world-class product, you need world-class people. I’ve known of Jon and Ronnie over the years as a trailer customer myself and knew they’d be the best fit to carry CTS to the next level.”
“We have the space, the talented staff and the ability to scale our business exponentially as we grow,” he continues. “The boat-trailer division was launched after several prominent boating figures expressed their struggles with some of the well-established players in the trailer market. We knew we could carry our skills and knowledge over from the semi-truck/trailer business and create something really special.”
Lakin Curry Thoren, the company’s GM adds, “I’ve grown up and been a part of the truck and trailer business my whole life. I think that helps set us apart from some of the competition. We don’t just sell trailers, we use them ourselves day in and day out.”
