Bartlett, IL (July 31, 2019) -- Auto Truck Group, a work truck upfitter specializing in the design, manufacture and installation of truck and van equipment, today announced to build an all-new production facility in Fort Wayne, Indiana. The company plans to invest more than $6 million to build a 72,000 square-foot manufacturing complex which is scheduled to open early next year and is poised to nearly double the production capacity of Auto Truck Group's current Fort Wayne location.

The new facility will be home to Auto Truck Group's manufacturing operations in the region, featuring more than 40 production bays, as well as additional office space and storage capacity. To further support its continued growth, the company plans to hire up to 50 additional technicians to staff its new location. The company will continue to operate at its existing manufacturing location in Fort Wayne until construction of the new facility is complete.
