Missouri Great Dane is the newest company to join the VIPAR Heavy Duty network of distributors as a stockholder. Established in 1980, Missouri Great Dane operates out of its headquarters in Benton, Missouri, and from a St. Louis branch that opened in 1993.
Missouri Great Dane serves a customer base of fleets, independent service facilities, municipalities, owner-operators and farmers in the greater St. Louis area, as well as southeast Missouri and southern Illinois. The company specializes in heavy-duty tractor and trailer parts, tools and equipment and shop supplies and its service offering includes critical parts delivery, complete trailer repair, light truck repair (alignment, brakes, suspension and electrical) and trailer mobile service.
“The greater St. Louis area is a central transportation hub in the Midwest. The addition of Missouri Great Dane to our network of distributors provides added distribution and a strategic partner to enhance our footprint in this key market,” said Jim Pennig, vice president of business development, VIPAR Heavy Duty. “The company’s management team is committed to growing their business and supplying customers with high-quality products with outstanding service.
