Load King’s Sedalia MO location recently was featured as this year’s Sedalia Showcase.
Load King, a subsidiary of Custom Truck One Source, opened the new location in May 2018. The new facility, located in Thomas Meadows Industrial Park, occupies 28,000 square feet of manufacturing and office space.
“We’re honored to be selected as this year’s Sedalia Showcase and have enjoyed partnering with the Sedalia and Pettis County Economic Development Office for this event,” said Dan Nowlin, vice president of operations for Load King’s Sedalia facilities.
Load King started producing heavy equipment solutions in Pettis county in 2008 under the Custom Fabrication and Equipment brand name. In February 2018, Custom Fabrication was rebranded as Load King.
The company’s been producing trailers and other heavy equipment since 1956.
Organized as a strategic initiative of Economic Development Sedalia-Pettis County, this year’s Sedalia Showcase featured Load King as a leading employer in the region.
“Sedalia and Pettis County are thrilled to partner with Load King to celebrate the launch of this new manufacturing facility,” said Jessica Craig, executive director of economic development for Sedalia-Pettis County.
Activities during the event included a ribbon cutting for the new facility and guided tours. During the tours, visitors had the opportunity to view Load King’s new manufacturing facility, where they produce a variety of products for its equipment line.
