Mid-States Utility Trailer Sales, a Utility Manufacturing semi-trailer dealership with four locations in Nebraska, Iowa and South Dakota, held the Grand Opening of its newly remodeled showroom.

The Grand Opening was launched by David Brown, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony by the owners of Mid-States Utility Trailer Sales, Shane Keizer and Stacy Bricker.

Founded in 2001 by Jim and Jackie Keizer, industry magnates and 30-year veterans of the trucking industry, the Keizer Companies quickly grew and are now the 6th largest Utility Manufacturing semi-trailer dealership in the United States, offering a wide range of new and used refrigerated trailers, dry vans and drop decks to support the U.S. transportation industry which moves 9.2 billion tons of freight annually and requires over 3 million truck drivers. Mid-States Utility Trailer Sales also provide heavy equipment servicing, including a 24-hour emergency road assistance to keep transportation companies on the road delivering their freight.

"The remodel work was completed on our parts shop and service departments, giving these areas a significantly more contemporary look but also making these spaces safer and more efficient,” said Bob Elsasser, General Manager of Mid-States Utility Trailer Sales, Omaha. “Our parts and service departments now have individual work stations and improved lighting. Our parts and service counters were completely redone using the sides of 3000R and 4000D-X Utility models. A driver’s lounge was also created with seating and a vending machine for drivers who are waiting for their service work to be completed. We also added to our walls new decaling directing customers to the specific departments, along with part vendor logos. We have also added a machine bay and centralized all cutting and machine duties.”
