Merx Truck and Trailer started in 2014 after it spun off from Merx Global as a stand alone business. Our first location in Melrose Park saw a lot of demand from local businesses looking for a reliable partner when it came down to servicing their heavy-duty equipment.
We started with basic services like oil change, tire replacement, and alignment using top-of-the-line equipment and suppliers to ensure our customers are happy. We expanded into bodywork and trailer repair as we saw a lot of requests for that from our customers. We expanded into a second location in 2020 in Channahon, IL that has 16 double bays and a painting booth on 22,000 square feet of space.
We trained a professional team of mechanics and management team with the same customer-oriented mentality and work ethic that we have at our first location. The convenient location (intersection of I-80 and I-55) and the need for a reliable shop in the area has immediately brought us customers looking to service their equipment.
In 2021, Merx Truck and Trailer acquired AA Truck Repair in Schaumburg, IL adding a leading diesel shop in the Chicagoland area to our expanding network. The Schaumburg location specializes in engine repairs, engine overhaul, and diagnostics.
