Iowa Mold Tooling Co. Inc. (IMT), an Oshkosh Corporation company, is pleased to announce that Elpers Truck Equipment, an IMT Diamond Authority Distributor based in Evansville, Ind., has opened a new facility to serve IMT customers throughout sections of three Midwestern states. The new facility will serve customers throughout a 150-mile radius spanning from southern Indiana and southern Illinois into western Kentucky.
“Our new facility will improve the efficiency of our operations and allow us to continue offering first-rate service to our customers for many more years to come,” said Jim Elpers, co-owner of Elpers Truck Equipment. “The combination of a new facility and experienced staff will allow us to continue providing the finest-quality trucks, parts and service in the tri-state area.”
Elpers Truck Equipment will celebrate the grand opening of its new facility during an open house on Thursday, July 15, 2010.
With the move to the new facility, Elpers Truck Equipment can offer more in-stock product offerings to customers, improve access and parking for larger trucks and significantly increase the size of its shop space. The new facility, which is located at 8136 Baumgart Road in Evansville, Ind., offers 16,000 square feet of available space — more than double the size of the company’s old facility.
