CHATTANOOGA, TN — Heil’s nationwide dealer network is strengthening its presence in the Midwest region with the grand opening of EJ Equipment’s newest service and training facility in Addison, IL.
EJ Equipment, Northern Illinois’ premier municipal and contractor distributor has been a Heil® dealer since 2016, offering a full line of Heil® garbage trucks, service and parts, as well as automated carry containers from The Curotto-Can.
Scott Whetzal, regional sales manager for EJ Equipment explains, “We were quickly outgrowing our former location and had been actively searching for a space with a very specific location, size and layout. Our new facility in Addison is everything we were looking for and will allow us to provide unbeatable services to our customers and the manufacturers that we represent.”
EJ Equipment’s new Addison, IL location is a state-of-the-art 25,000 square foot facility with an 8-bay, 15,000 sq. ft. service center and spacious dedicated training complex. In addition to the new Addison facility, they also have two existing branches located in Manteno, IL and Troy, IL.
Pat Carroll, president of environmental solutions group said the EJ Equipment expansion is further evidence of a strong demand for Heil products and services. “EJ Equipment is a premiere dealer for us at Heil – and we are very proud of what they’ve accomplished in a relatively short period of time. They run a fantastic dealership and we couldn’t be happier for EJ Equipment to represent the Heil and the Curotto-Can brands.”
Amanda Spathis, inside sales representative states, “Training has always been incredibly important to us as a company. One of the things we are most excited about are the opportunities the new facility will provide on the training front. We are proud to represent some of the finest brands in the business. When you offer world-class products with world-class training, it’s an unbeatable combination, providing an incredible value to our customers.” Spathis added, “Whether it be for truck operators, mechanics or technical personnel, proper training can not only have a dramatic impact on safety and efficiency, but on the longevity and reliability of equipment as well.”
