After negotiations with the owners who purchased the assets of Monon Trailers from the bankruptcy courts, Martec International successfully concluded a contract to purchase the parts distribution center (PDC) at 17311 Fusion Way in Country Club Hills IL.
This facility, with 20,000 square feet of inside storage space and sitting on 200,000 square feet of land, will allow Martec to grow its Midwest distribution unimpeded by space restraints.
“This is exactly what we were looking for,” said Bob Gaskin, general manager of the Martec Midwest operation. Gaskin comes from Monon and brings years of experience in trailer and chassis repair and replacement parts distribution.
“Bob pointed us toward this opportunity, and we took full advantage of his knowledge and expertise to make it happen. Today Martec Midwest is the largest of Martec International's distribution facilities and has launched us squarely into the trailer business,” said Alex Ewig, president of Martec International.
