The Flowers Family Foundation presented its sixth annual Wisconsin Business Achievement Award to Stoughton Trailers, LLC. The award recognizes the Stoughton, Wis. manufacturer of over-the-road semitrailers for its positive influence on the state economy.

Stoughton Trailers provides jobs for more than 1,600 people, the company says, and its operations are housed in seven Wisconsin facilities on four campuses, including corporate offices, sales offices and manufacturing plants in Stoughton, Evansville and Brodhead. The company remains a family business today, and has been since 1961.

To mark the honor of earning the award, Stoughton Trailers will receive a $75,000 donation from the Flowers Family Foundation to present to the charity of the company’s choice. Stoughton Trailers plans to combine this contribution with a $75,000 matching gift from the company, totaling $150,000, toward artificial turf to be installed at Collins Field.

“We’re incredibly thankful to the Flowers Family Foundation for choosing Stoughton Trailers for this distinguished award, and we’re honored to join the ranks of other well-respected companies throughout the state that are making a significant impact on Wisconsin’s thriving economic landscape,” said Stoughton Trailers President Bob Wahlin. “We plan to use this gift to seed the fund for an artificial turf field for the Stoughton community. Installing turf will allow the field to support more frequent, year-round activity, and open up many new opportunities for community use.”
