Growmark acquires tank and truck manufacturer

January 11, 2017 By    

growmark-logoGrowmark acquired the assets of L.T. & E. Inc., a family owned and operated tank and truck manufacturer and repair facility based in Arcola, Illinois.

L.T. & E. works exclusively on vacuum and fuel delivery vehicles, Growmark says. This acquisition gives Growmark Tank & Truck Center its sixth shop location, with three others in Illinois and two in Iowa.

“The employees of both companies will greatly benefit from this acquisition,” says Mike Davis, Growmark Tank and Truck Center sales and operations manager. “This acquisition brings over 30 years of industry knowledge and experience, which will allow us to better serve our member companies and other external customers.”

The Growmark Tank & Truck Centers manufacture delivery trucks for the liquid fuel, propane and bulk oil industries. They offer a complete rolling stock package, from fabrication and assembly to Department of Transportation testing and repairs, Davis says.

“The addition of this facility means many of our customers don’t have to travel as far for their rolling stock orders or repairs,” he adds.
