Auto Truck Group opens new facility in Kansas City

A new work truck upfitting and manufacturing facility opens at 3699 N. Booth Avenue, Kansas City, Missouri. The facility is owned by Auto Truck Group, a North American upfitter specializing in the design, manufacture, and installation of customized solutions for work trucks and vans.

This state-of-the-art facility will feature 70,000 square feet of manufacturing space, enough space to upfit more than 100 vehicles concurrently, along with a full design studio, and many more features to support the manufacture and installation of truck equipment for a wide variety of users and applications. This facility will provide the custom solutions to truck fleets in such industries as energy, telecommunications, railroad, municipalities, construction, and much more. 

Importantly, the facility has also been awarded ship-thru for the new 2015 Transit full-size van, and the 2015 Ford F-150 Pickup. Using Ford ship-thru code 31A D9K (for both Ford vehicles), companies in need of fleet upfitting will be able to receive custom vehicles through the Ford transportation and shipping system.

"We are pleased to announce this facility, including the valuable addition of ship-thru for the new Ford F-150 pickup and Transit full-sized vans," says Jim Dondlinger, president for Auto Truck Group. "Our new Auto Truck facility will serve both regional and national customers and fleets."

The new facility consolidates two older Kansas City facilities, with the 1601 N. Corrington Avenue and the 200 Northwest Harlem Road locations closing.
