Elkhart, IN (August 31, 2018)– American Cargo Group, Inc.

American Cargo Group CEO, Tom Lilly states, “The addition of American Hauler to our family of cargo trailer brands represents a unique and timely opportunity to grow our manufacturing footprint and advance the company’s strategic mission. The long-term manufacturing excellence of American Hauler, along with the steadfast loyalty of their dealer base, speaks volumes to the character of the company and why it is a logical acquisition for ACG.”

Bob Morgan, the General Manager of American Hauler said, “These are exciting times for American Hauler management and staff. It’s exciting to be owned by trailer people who speak the language, understand the products, know the marketplace, and most importantly have relationships with the dealers. We now have the tools and resources to grow the company and be responsive to the marketplace. Our dealers will see and feel a difference which will result in more sales for them – it’s a win/win scenario,” Mr. Morgan continued, “We have expanded our options department and added 12 acres to our storage yard for increased inventory. It will take a period of time to hit full stride, but all of these improvements have already proven to be valuable additions.”
