Auto Truck Group will open a new work truck and commercial van upfitting and manufacturing facility later this month in O’Fallon, Missouri, and shipping will begin on January 5.
The facility, located at 21 Elaine Drive, is 40,000 square feet—enough space to upfit more than 30 vehicles concurrently. The facility also has two acres of storage, and many more features to support the installation of truck equipment for a wide variety of users and applications. This facility will provide the custom solutions to truck fleets in such industries as energy, telecommunications, railroad, municipalities, construction, and much more.
Importantly, the facility has also been awarded ship-through for new 2015 Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon, Chevy Express and GMC Savanna (Ship Through Code TBQ), and Chevy City Express (Ship Though Code SQF).
"We are proud to announce this new facility, including the important addition of ship through for the new GM trucks and commercial vans," says Jim Dondlinger, President for Auto Truck Group. "Our new facility will serve both regional and national customers and fleets."
The new facility follows the opening of a new Kansas City, Missouri, facility in June.
