About Double A Trailer Sales, Inc.
We are committed to delivering extraordinary service and high quality products to our customers at a competitive rate. We take pride in our customer satisfaction and strive to provide expertise through our skilled staff. Our commitment to satisfying customer needs is an essential aspect of our daily operations.
Double A was founded in 1965 about a mile outside of Delphos, Ohio by Ambrose A. Wannemacher as a dealer of Great Dane trailers. Due to increased business, in 1972, Mr. Wannemacher moved operations to our current location, 1750 East Fifth Street, Delphos, Ohio. The new location was expanded to provide a repair and maintenance facility, parts department, sales team, and corporate offices. Throughout the 70s, Double A grew into one of Great Dane’s major independent dealers.
During the 80s, we inceased business with Great Dane, and joined the Dorsey Trailers, Inc. organization, where we became a “Top 10” distributor, and eventually the “#1 Dorsey Distributor”. In 1988, A.A. Wannemacher retired, at which time his son, Mark, took over as manager. We had continued success with Dorsey Trailers, Inc. and eventually joined Trailmobile, and became a multi-dealership, which provided a dual avenue for meeting supply and demand.
Sadly, the spring of 1994 brought the passing of the founder, A.A. Wannemacher, and his wife Coletta. Prior to his passing, A.A. Wannemacher transitioned the company control, which allowed us to continue to prosper. Over the years, we continued to expand our repair and maintenance facility, parts department, and eventually added parts delivery vans to further provide excellent service to our customers. As a consequence of Dorsey Trailers, Inc. financial problems, we ceased its 17 year dealership and expanded our sales department to include Reitnouer, Vanguard and Manac, which we represent today.
Since the start of Double A Trailer Sales, Inc., we have been family owned and operated, with Mark Wannemacher and his daughter Leann overseeing company operations and sales, and Chuck Wannemacher managing the repair and maintenance facility. The family takes pride in continuing a customer-oriented business established by A.A. Wannemacher in 1965.
