Craftsman Utility finishes construction on new facility

Utm Craftsmen Davenport 300x225Craftsmen Utility Trailer has completed the development of its new facility in Davenport, Iowa.

Located at 2607 Research Parkway, near the Northwest Boulevard exit off of Interstate 80 in Davenport, Craftsman Utility says the new location was two years in the making.

“We acquired this location in 2015 in order to better serve our customers,” says Lou Helmsing, president of Craftsmen Utility Trailer. “The facility that we were leasing from the prior owner was very small and did not allow any room for growth, so we decided to build a new facility that would offer a much improved experience for our customers. We are also excited to show off our new spacious facility at our Open House planned for later this year.”

The Davenport facility is located on 14 acres of land, next to two truck stops and near several truck dealers with space for trailer parking.

Craftsman Utility says the lot can accommodate 300 trailers and showcases new and used Utility 3000R reefers, 4000D-X Composite, 4000AE Combo Flatbeds and other specialty trailers. The 25,500 sq.-ft. facility includes a Driver’s Waiting Room, a 4,000-sq.-ft. Parts Warehouse and Showroom, and a Service Center with 12 Service Bays.

“Our service department is open on two shifts, offering both Express Service and Mobile Service. Our fleet of fully-equipped service trucks are ready to provide emergency road service and on-site repair,” says Helmsing.
