Inland Truck Parts and Service, a provider of parts, remanufacturing and repair for light-, medium- and heavy-duty trucks, is celebrating its 75th anniversary. The employee-owned and operated company, which has expanded its footprint throughout the Midwest and Great Plains, was originally founded in 1944 in Minneapolis as “Industrial & Truck Parts.”
In February 1975, Industrial and Truck Parts merged with Nebraska Parts Co., changing its name to Inland Truck Parts Co. (ITP) a year later. Over the next five decades, the company expanded by acquiring new companies or opening stores throughout the South and Great Plains, spanning 40 locations in 13 states.
“We’re extremely proud of everything ITP has been able to accomplish,” said Greg Klein, president of ITP. “It’s really a testament to the can-do attitude of our employee owners and the fact that we’re always willing to go the extra mile. I’m looking forward to watching this company grow in the years to come.”
In July 2018, ITP acquired Drive Train Industries of Denver, Colorado, gaining an additional eight locations in three states. The combined company currently has more than 850 employees.
“For three-quarters of a century, ITP has expanded our resources, refined our services and evolved to meet the needs of our customers,” Klein said. “Today, we’re well positioned to be the go-to resource for any kind of truck parts, reman or shop service.”
