Hurricane Motorsports™

427 Roadster Manufacturer

Hurricane Motorsports is one of the most talked-about names in replica car production, and is now a part of the Scranton family.

The Hurricane 427 Roadster is an American supercar that can be built by just about anyone who has ever spent some time in a garage. The 427 Roadster comes complete with all of the parts that you need to build this dream machine while requiring no welding, fiberglass work or metal bonding.

The Hurricane 427 has been designed from the ground up specifically with car enthusiasts in mind. The Roadster's accurate shape and caliber of the fiberglass body, high performance racing components, and overall completeness have proven to be a major draw for enthusiasts. Another major advantage to the Hurricane kit is that there is no donor car needed. The chassis, suspension, brakes, steering, body, and just about everything else are all provided as part of the kit - all you need to provide is the engine, transmission, paint, wheels and tires. Each car is custom built to the customer's unique specifications.

Bowie International™

Mobile Veterinary Clinics

In 1960, Dr. M.C. Bowie founded Bowie Manufacturing Inc. of Lake City, Iowa. Because Dr. Bowie was frustrated by working out of his car when making veterinary calls, he started Bowie Manufacturing with the idea in mind of making mobile practice calls more convenient and accessible. Bowie Manufacturing Inc. was the first to manufacture a mobile clinic out of fiberglass. Like all great ideas and products, our competitors have tried to copy us through the years but our quality and commitment to designing, manufacturing and incorporating the latest in mobile unit technology has never been successfully duplicated.

Originally, Bowie produced only a chassis-mounted fiberglass mobile veterinary clinic. Then in 1969 Bowie was again the first to manufacture and introduce an insert mobile clinic that allowed the veterinarian to have a slip-in, which was called the MINI. Through the years, new design concepts of insert veterinary models such as weight efficient compact modular units have been very successfully marketed. Today our insert models are the AMERICA II which is an 8' slip-ins for 1/2 and 3/4-ton trucks. The ULTRA 6 insert is designed to fit the extended cab 6' beds. We also have the CAPRI 6' and 7' slip-ins which fit the small trucks (S-10, Ranger, Dakota, etc.). The CROWN II is our slip-in unit designed for both the 6' and 8' truck beds and extended cab trucks. The CROWN II was designed so you can pull a 5th wheel trailer.

In 1985 Bowie's ability to innovate new products for the future was evident in the development of the DIPLOMAT mobile clinic. Again, Bowie was the first to manufacture and market a fiberglass clinic that will fit in Sport Utility Vehicles, vans and today's minivans. The DIPLOMAT II today has the fiberglass drawer arrangements with such options as a night heater, refrigerator and water system.

McLaughlin International™

Personal Protection/Screen print/Embroidery/Marketing Materials

In the early 1970's McLaughlin International recognized an increasing need in the marketplace for personal protection and safety equipment. This prompted McLaughlin International to begin producing personal leather holsters for chemical deterrent devices such as pepper spray and mace (CS gas). Soon McLaughlin International grew to become one of the largest manufacturers of the holsters. These products were so well received by the public that law enforcement and security personnel began using McLaughlin's holsters as well. This sparked a whole new line of vinyl and man made leather holsters designed specifically for law enforcement, security personnel, and military use.

Today, McLaughlin continues to produce top of the line personal security deterrent holsters. The holsters are helping law enforcement, and security personnel everyday worldwide, and they can also be found helping save lives on the hips of United States soldiers in Iraq.

In 2000, McLaughlin International began offering a whole line of marketing materials ranging from screen-printing and embroidery, to pens, key chains, bags, mugs, and many other promotional items. With professional quality and superior customer service McLaughlin has thrived in the regional markets.

McLaughlin International recently launched a new website which offers customers the ability to develop their own customized website to sell their apparel, accessories, and promotional items in. It is a safe, easy, and cost effective way to sell merchandise online.

K-PAC Compaction Equipment

Self Contained & Stationary Waste Compactor Units

Scranton and New Way have purchased the entire K-PAC compaction product offering from Stellar, including self-contained and stationary compactor units. “Earlier this year Stellar expanded its product line through the acquisition of the entire K-PAC product line which added cable hoists, container carriers, compaction units and tarpers to our current line,” says David Zrostlik, President of Stellar Industries, Inc. “However, we felt our expertise lies in the hydraulic truck equipment field, and compaction was not quite the right fit for us. New Way has years of experience in the waste market supplying refuse trucks and we feel New Way can take this product line and give it the attention it deserves.”

By adding this new product line, New Way, and Scranton Mfg. has taken great steps to build and expand New Way into a stronger leader of waste equipment worldwide.
