The Joe Gear Companies is the newest stockholder to join the VIPAR Heavy Duty network of distributors.
Since beginning operations in 1957, VIPAR says the Joe Gear Companies have grown to become five separate companies in six locations, each with a unique contribution to its market. While each company offers slightly different services, all five are united in the Joe Gear mission to be a strategic resource to their clients, “bringing innovative ideas and custom solutions to meet all their work truck and power equipment needs.”
Four of the Joe Gear Companies will be affiliated with VIPAR Heavy Duty. They include Consolidated Truck Parts & Service with locations in Monroe and Shreveport, La., providing a full selection of bumper to bumper parts and services for all makes and models of light-, medium-, and heavy-duty trucks. Located in Many, La., MTP Drivetrain Services, is a defense contractor specializing in remanufactured truck components. Many Gear and Axle, also located in Many, is a full service heavy-duty truck repair shop catering to the local community. JAT Power in Doral, Fla. provides power generation equipment and parts.
VIPAR says the Joe Gear Companies management team brings many years of experience offering northern Louisiana and the surrounding areas with heavy equipment, parts and services.
“The Joe Gear Companies pledges to its customers to provide the world’s highest quality products, supported by an experienced service team, with unprecedented value for any investment made with them,” says Jim Pennig, vice president of business development for VIPAR Heavy Duty. “Their customer service commitment fits well with the values that VIPAR Heavy Duty espouses and we are pleased to have a new distribution partner for northern Louisiana.”
