Habitat for Humanity:
Mckinney cares, this is our creed and it matters a great deal to us how the communities in which we reside are faring. Both collectively and as individuals we make every effort to ensure we are involved and participating in making the lives of those around us better. In March, Mckinney attended one of its many annual fundraisers, this time for Habitat for Humanity. But here at Mckinney, we don’t mind getting our hands dirty either, Mckinney team members have taken part in multiple builds and look forward to many more.

California Trucking Association:
Mckinney is heavily involved in the state trucking associations of Washington, Oregon, California, Arizona and Texas. In December, team members from our Hayward Branch celebrated the California Trucking Association’s President’s Night Holiday Dinner with a cruise around the San Francisco Bay. Attendees Jay Gamab and Mallory Olander of our Hayward Branch presented a $2500 check to the Fred Finch Youth Center of Oakland. Fred Finch Youth Center provides mental health, housing, residential treatment, and other support services to system-involved youth and their families in California, including support to children who have aged out of the foster system.

Transportation Club of Seattle and Tacoma’s Holiday Auctions:
In December, Mckinney attended the Transportation Club of Seattle and the Transportation Club of Tacoma’s Holiday Charity Auctions and both were a huge success. The TCS Auction benefited the Salvation Army for which the club raised tens of thousands of dollars. The TCT Auction benefited the Pierce County Emergency Food Network raising over $34,000 for the cause. Mckinney has been a key participant in both clubs for many years, our Marketing and Business Development Director Lori Kincannon is a long standing board member for the Transpiration Club of Tacoma and helped to organize this special event. It’s one of our favorites and we look forward to it every year.

New Phoenix Facility:
It sure gets hot under the Arizona sun, a fact of life our Mckinney Phoenix team knows all too well. Yet these circumstances should greatly improve with the construction of a brand new cutting edge, 3 bay, air-conditioned maintenance facility expected for completion this May. The facility includes three offices, a storage room, two bathrooms, a large space for parts and even a break room to relax. The new shop will be a welcome addition to the Mckinney arsenal in our constant effort to bring you the very best trailers around. Now our outstanding technicians like Gonzalo Ortega, a winner at the 2017 TMC National Skills Competition, will have even more tools to succeed. In addition to new equipment and systems, our Phoenix shop will feature Mckinney’s first safety tethering line which will allow service members to work on trailer roofs securely and effectively.  Other building features include three phase power systems, LED and solar lighting, exterior bollards and insulated doors and windows. All in all, the construction of this facility does more than express Mckinney’s care for its own, it demonstrates our confidence in the Phoenix market and our expectation for continued growth in the region.
