Mitchell, S.D. (November, 1, 2016) – Wheelco, an industry-leading provider of truck and trailer parts distribution in the upper Midwest, announces the upcoming service shop extension to its Mitchell parts store. The service shop will open in early 2017, and it will triple the current location’s size. The Mitchell location plans to expand to 15,000 square feet with the addition of the four-bay service shop.
Wheelco plans to hire two to four additional truck technicians to support the new enterprise, and the coming shop will be able to service up to four trucks at a time. Wheelco has two locations in Sioux Falls and St. Paul with combination full-service parts stores and service shops.
Mitchell is the third Wheelco location to add a service shop, although the Mitchell parts store has been open since 1997. Wheelco chose Mitchell as their next service shop location due to customer demand. Truck services will include suspension work, driveline work, and preventive maintenance, among others. Hours will be from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
“I’m excited about the upcoming expansion in Mitchell,” said Brad Swanson, Director of Service Operations at Wheelco. “It will add a whole new dimension to our branch—to add more services—and will help us grow the service part of our business beyond part sales.” He continued, “People know the kind of work we do, that we know what we’re doing, and that we keep trucks running—and at fair market price.”
Wheelco is the truck and trailer parts distribution leader in the upper Midwest with a flagship parts store and service shop in Sioux Falls, S.D. Six Wheelco locations offer extensive part inventories and excellent service shops, along with international shipping and daily parts delivery on designated routes. Proud to be family owned and customer driven since 1961. | wheelco.com
