Inland Truck Parts & Service recently completed four truck service shop acquisitions, continuing its 20-year effort to provide a single-stop solution for all of its customers’ parts and service needs.
“This recent round of acquisitions is one more testament to our ongoing dedication to expand our full-service repair offerings and our geographic footprint itself,” said President and CEO Greg Klein. “We’re also proud that as we’ve continued to grow, we’ve continued to be the same employee-owned business that our customers know and trust.”
Last July, Inland acquired Custom Class 8 Truck Service in Grand Island, Nebraska, and broke ground earlier this month for its new, state-of-the-art facility. Inland expects the existing operation to move into the new facility by the end of 2017, which will provide a full range of parts and service offerings.
The company also acquired D&S Truck Service last October and C&E Truck & Auto Repair last November, both located in the Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, metro area. Inland plans to either build or buy new facilities on both the East and West side of Oklahoma City and relocate existing operations there to provide easier access for its customer base.
In February of this year, Inland also acquired Grizzly Maintenance in Casper, Wyoming, and relocated the business into a newly remodeled facility to combine it with the existing parts business.
These expansions bring Inland’s service shop operations to a total of 27 locations out of 30 the company currently operates all throughout the Great Plains.
“These expansions, along with our dedicated training center, show how important our employee owners are to Inland’s success,” said Klein. “We’re committed to giving our people the tools, knowledge and hands-on experience they need to continue providing the excellent customer service we are known for.”
Established in 1944, Inland Truck Parts & Service is celebrating its 73rd year of industry-leading performance at 30 locations in Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas and Wyoming. As a 100 percent employee-owned company, Inland emphasizes responsive customer service and local decision-making.
