John L. Sumrall Sr.
In 1968, Charles H. Sumrall started repairing trucks and trailers in southern Louisiana. This led Mr. Sumrall to purchasing 22 trucks and trailers throughout the 70's and early 80's. The company soon began to focus on truck and trailer refrigeration. In 1995, company's founder, Charles, passed away and his son John Sumrall Sr. bought the business. In 2008, the trailer refrigeration company in New Orleans was sold, and a new facility was built in Hammond, Louisiana focusing on trailer and truck collision repair. Sumrall's Truck and Trailer Service has always been a family business and continues to be with his son, John Jr. as Manager and his daughter, Cassie as Controller.
"I think having roots as owner/operators of our own trucks and trailers helps us guide our service technicians to understand what truck owners can expect when they pull into a independent shop."
