Landoll Corporation Makes Donation to the International Towing & Recovery Hall of Fame & Museum
MARYSVILLE, KS Landoll Corporation has made a significant donation to the International Towing & Recovery Hall of Fame & Museum. Don Landoll made the announcement that a 2017 Model 440A-50 Hydraulic Traveling Axle trailer has been donated to the benefit auction that will be held on Sept. 8, 2016, in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Landoll Corporation and their primary vendors have combined to make this possible.
Each year the ITRHFM conducts a live auction fundraiser to support the ongoing activities of the museum and Hall of Fame. This year's auction will coincide with the 100th Anniversary Celebration commemorating 100 years of the Towing Industry.
"It's exciting to have such great partners as Landoll," said Thomas Tedford a Museum Board Member. "It's important that we showcase larger items that have played an important role in today's towing operations."
Landoll Trailers became prominent in the early 1980's and have played a key role in transitioning towing companies into the transportation industry. Diversification has been a core business philosophy for Don Landoll for decades said Jim Ladner, Landoll Sales Manager. Attending many tow shows back in the 1980's, many towers discovered that they wanted a new Landoll to haul buses. The towers found out their customers wanted Landoll Trailers to move just about everything else including buses. Those transport needs diversified the tower's business from waiting for tow calls to developing a whole new customer group; customers that needed something hauled, moved or transported to job sites. Today, most towing and recovery companies operate trailers as part of their equipment fleet.
