The article discusses the move of the truck equipment distributor, Auto Truck, to a 103,000-square foot complex in Bartlett, Illinois from Bensenville that enhanced its ability to design customer-specific solutions. It is stated that the firm was able to better serve its traditional customers like railroads, major fleets and municipalities due to the conveniences of having everything under one roof and 16 acres of paved parking. Auto Truck's spacious shop, showroom and customer lounge reportedly also helped in that effort.
