IL Truck Group, a dealership that sells used specialty commercial trucks nationwide, has changed its name to Forge Truck Centers, marking the next era of growth for the company. 

Forge Truck Centers was founded in 2019 in Hinckley, Ill. Since then, the company has expanded from four to more than 40 employees and more than 1,000 customers in industries such as construction, oil and gas, mining, agriculture, and specialized transportation. 

“Forge Truck Centers was selected because it reflects our focus on developing long-term customer relationships, delivering outstanding service, and building a network of regional locations throughout the country,” says Vince Bordignon, sales manager, Forge Truck Centers.  “We thank our customers for their business during our first five years and look forward to continually providing an even greater selection of vehicles and higher level of support in the years ahead.”

Forge Truck Centers begins its geographic expansion with the opening of its South Central Regional Sales and Service Center near Dallas later this month. The Dallas location of Forge Truck Centers in Hutchins will primarily serve customers in Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, and parts of Georgia. 

The company also says plans call for the opening of one new regional location annually over the next several years. The new centers will make it convenient for regional customers to see a truck in-person before buying, take delivery of a vehicle more quickly, and get parts and service, the company says.

Forge Truck Centers states it offers one of the country’s largest specialized inventories of used heavy-duty commercial trucks that are in high demand but are hard to find. Upon the opening of the company’s second location, inventory will total around 300 vehicles. 

Complementing its extensive inventory, Forge Truck Centers also provides comprehensive service and support. The company states it specializes in upfitting services — including but not limited to the addition of a headache rack for storing tools or a wet kit hydraulic system to power additional equipment — so that a truck can be customized for each customer’s needs.
