Scranton Mfg. Honored as “Best of Iowa Business”

Company cites “Midwest values” as foundation of success

Scranton Manufacturing is praised as a leader in business evolution in the 'Best of Iowa Business' publication by the Iowa Association of Business & Industry. “We listen to our customers,” said Scranton cofounder and CEO John McLaughlin. “I think that's one of the biggest reasons we are where we're at today. We give customers what they want, and then exceed their expectations.” Started in a small Iowa town nearly 40 years ago, Scranton Manufacturing Co. is now the multinational parent corporation of seven other companies.

Scranton Manufacturing is the owner of successful enterprises such as New Way garbage trucks, which makes and distributes refuse vehicles in several countries, and Hurricane Motorsports, maker of the Hurricane 427 Roadster replica car. In just a few years, Scranton expanded its facilities four times, soaring to one of the largest family-owned waste-compactor companies. Today, Scranton owns seven companies and has distributorships covering all 50 states, as well as Canada, Puerto Rico, South America, Mexico, the Middle East, and Asia.
