TEL has unveiled a new 56,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art fleet maintenance and reconditioning facility in Greenfield, Indiana, off I-70 in the east Indianapolis metro area. The facility can handle more than 130 tractors and trailers a month, expanding TEL’s maintenance and reconditioning capabilities across the Midwest and other parts of the country, said Aaron Thompson, Vice President of Fleet Maintenance for the company.
The facility, which sits on 40 acres, includes six trailer bays, 18 truck service bays and 10,000 square feet of space for parts storage. It employs 30 people on a single shift, with the potential of adding a second shift in 2024.
“TEL’s mission has always been to help entrepreneurial minded individuals start and maintain successful businesses in the trucking industry. We do that by offering innovative solutions, unparalleled value and best-in-class service and support to aid in growing their businesses. This maintenance and reconditioning facility is a testament to our commitment to serve independent contractors and small fleet customers in the Midwest and beyond,” Thompson noted.
The facility features:
A security-enclosed lot, which allows for expansive storage of tractors and trailers to accommodate most fleet sizes.
A fully enclosed paint booth, where technicians paint the complete tractor as well as parts needed for the reconditioning process.
Department of Transportation (DOT) certified full-time technicians on staff, who provide road-ready DOT inspection for all vehicles .
A fully automated indoor truck wash system to clean all tractors and trailers leaving the facility.
Before moving to Greenfield, we operated a smaller maintenance facility in leased space in Marion County. “The Hancock County economic development zone is what drew us to Greenfield" - Thompson.
TEL President Jud Alexander joined Thompson and other employees recently at the facility’s grand opening event to welcome leaders in the transportation industry, including fleet carriers, customers, vendors, and business partners.
“The Greenfield facility is already increasing the level of service TEL is able to providecustomers,” Alexander said afterward. “It is a great example of the level of growth we have achieved to date, with much more to come, as TEL expands from the Southeast across the Midwest and into Texas and the Southwest,” he said.
