Sam Winer Motors, Inc. was founded in the 1940s by its namesake Sam Winer who left his father’s company because he had the desire to deal in trucks and equipment. At the end of WWII he was hired by a conglomerate of American truck dealers who had formed a partnership to buy U. S. Surplus war assets overseas. There was a huge demand for trucks as there had been practically no trucks built for civilian purposes during the time of hostilities in WWII. Although trucks were being sold by the War Assets Administration in the continental U. S., there was a large quantity of logistical vehicles located in areas occupied the U. S. Armed forces. His first assignment was in the Philippines where he loaded boatloads of trucks and shipped them back to California. Customers bought them immediately at areas near the Los Angeles docks and, ironically, some of his first customers were contractors building things for the government such as the Hanford WA atomic plant. After a few years, he decided to leave the buying group. He expanded his business by moving to the company’s present location on the outskirts of Akron where he eventually acquired 48 acres. Over these years the company sold almost every vehicle produced for the U. S. military during WWII, Korea, and Vietnam and it has become one of the largest government and civilian surplus dealers in the U. S. selling almost everything associated with truck components such as engines, axles, transmissions, tyres, etc. (Source: SamWinerMotors.com).
