The Encore! story continues and the adventures are primed to unfold thanks to Matt Heacock and his Heacock Trailers and Truck Accessories business.
Besides being famous for his outstanding hitch and trailer business, Matt represents Sundowner, so thanks to Matt and Sundowner my dream-gooseneck-two- horse-slant-load trailer is ready to carry me and Encore! to exciting places.
Below is a history of Heacock Trailers and Truck Accessories shared by Matt Heacock and his wife, Anna. Matt is a fourth generation owner and here’s the story:
“Heacock Trailers originally began as Heacock Welding, in Glendale Ca. in 1939. My great grandpa Ed started the shop and it quickly went in the direction of towing. My grandfather Bob took over in the late 50’s, and when my dad and his brother took it over in the 70’s, they were making custom hitches, horse trailers, utility trailers and fabricating custom projects. My dad, Tony, separated from his brother and the Glendale shop in 1985, and we moved to Arroyo Grande to start Heacock Welding North. We renamed the business Heacock Trailers and Truck Accessories a while back.
I have worked in this business, both for my dad and myself now for over 25 years! My wife, Anna, and I bought the business in 2016 and have been very fortunate to have such great employees, loyal customers, and a great town to operate in. We hope for many more years of being able to provide service and products for our great customers and maybe one of our 3 daughters will want to run with the torch down the road!”
We hope the younger Heacocks will continue the legacy! Meanwhile there is no better team than Matt and Anna to do business with when you’re doing the business of hauling precious cargo of any kind!
Dodge Ram Truck, Sundowner Trailer and Thoroughbred horse are a gourmet recipe for fun.
