McGREGOR, Minn.—The Cargo Max utility trailer is just one of the exciting developments that the staff at FLOE have introduced recently to the market. With three distinct loading/unloading modes and nearly indestructible UltraBody™ this product is redefining the industry.

According to FLOE International President Don VanderMey the company started the first model eight years ago. “We had another company do the polyethylene thermoforming for us and we did the aluminum frame which has been our forte for 30-plus years,” said Don. “To verticalize part of the strategy was to invest in this thermoformer and do it ourselves.”

“We wanted to also do other products that we had in mind and do other contract work for other companies,” added Don. “At this point, we decided to change the model of Cargo Max around to streamline it. We made it look a lot nicer.”

McGREGOR, Minn.—At the age of 97, Jim Haussner has plenty of stories to tell of his many summers spent in Canada and very few of them involve catching fish. That’s because Jim was busy trapping minnows in a float plane for 100s of fisherman or building a resort on a remote lake in Northwest Ontario.

So what motivated Jim to spend every summer for 30 years in Canada? Jim shared that there were plenty of big lakes full of walleyes up there. “You could throw a bait out any place on the lake and pull in walleyes in them days.”

Jim actually started out fishing in Canada on a remote lake. “Cliff Lake was the first lake we fished,” he recalled. “It was a virgin lake and the road was just put in.”
