Country Supply Looks Back to the Beginning of the Doonan Trailers

Country Supply, Inc. became a corporation in 1975 just a couple years after Wendell Doonan incorporated his company, Doonan Trailer Corporation. As our business grew from sod farming to selling equipment, our main focus of business changed to selling flatbed semi-trailers and forklifts. With years of additional types of trailers added, we became distributors for some of the best semi-trailer brands made in the U.S.A. Doonan Specialized Trailer, LLConce known as Doonan Trailer Corporation, is one of the names we proudly represent.

Doonan Trailer Corporation initially manufactured grain hopper trailers until the oil boom in the early 1980's. Doonan began manufacturing other products to include: "oilfield floats, water tanks, pressurized vessels, and firefighting equipment." 

In the early 1990's, Doonan Trailer Corporation again expanded with the manufacturing of "platform" trailers and became specialized in its "steel drop deck" trailers. Offering lower tare weights, Doonan added it's "aluminum/steel drop deck" trailer in the early 2000's.

In the Fall of 2006, Wendell Doonan sold his company that was renamed as it is today, Doonan Specialized Trailers, LLC. The three new owners brought years of experience together with their company specializing in "custom flatbed and drop decks, oilfield trailers, boat trailers, extendibles, and double drops." The owners expanded even more in the Spring of 2008 when they acquired a company that added "a line of all-aluminum platform trailers." Presently, Doonan Specialized Trailers, LLC offers customers "all-steel and all-aluminum flatbeds, drop decks and double drop trailers."

Country Supply, Inc., located approximately fifty minutes south of Chicago, proudly represents Doonan Specialized Trailers, LLC. We are also proud to be your authorized dealer for Reitnouer Trailers, XL Specialized Trailer, Transcraft, Trail King and Princeton Piggyback Forklifts. Our on-site and online parts stores have everything you need to keep your trailers working.
