Auto Truck Group expanding Fort Wayne IN production

New 72,000-square-foot facility to nearly double upfitter’s manufacturing, installation capacity in region

Auto Truck Group, a work truck upfitter specializing in the design, manufacture and installation of truck and van equipment, says it plans to build an all-new production facility in Fort Wayne IN.

The company expects to invest more than $6 million in a 72,000-square-foot manufacturing complex scheduled to open in early 2020, nearly doubling the production capacity of Auto Truck Group’s current Fort Wayne location.

“Our Fort Wayne facility and its employees have played a vital role in our company’s continued success, and as a result of this unprecedented growth, we’ve quickly outgrown our current location,” said Pete Dondlinger, president of Auto Truck Group. “Fort Wayne is an ideal location for Auto Truck Group, and this new, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility will further enhance our production capabilities as we continue to develop customized vehicles for every type of vocational application to meet the needs of our customers.”

The new facility will be home to Auto Truck Group’s manufacturing operations in the region, the company said, with more than 40 production bays, as well as additional office space and storage capacity. To further support its growth, the company plans to hire up to 50 additional technicians to staff its new location.

Auto Truck said it will continue to operate at its existing location in Fort Wayne until construction of the new facility is complete.
