Deutz Service Center Chicago is opening in Elgin, Illinois, to serve the northern and east central part of the state as well as Northern Indiana.
The new service center will provide regular maintenance and emergency service for Deutz engines, as well as provide Deutz parts and fluids. Technicians from the center will also travel to customers’ locations to perform service.
“We’re starting out with two fully equipped field service trucks, making it possible for us to go to our customers when they need us,” says Nick Vermet, general manager for Deutz Power Center Midwest, Deutz Service Center St. Louis and Deutz Service Center Chicago. “Drive-up customers will benefit from our extensive parts counter and receive expert assistance from our in-house technicians.”
Sal Mangialonini will be the branch manager for Service Center Chicago, while Ron Schmidt will be the service supervisor. Mangialonini has 35 years of diesel engine experience, with time spent in sales, service, parts and management for companies such as SES Inc., Freightliner, Kenworth and Detroit Diesel.
Schmidt has served as a journeyman field technician and as a welder/fabricator in the industrial equipment industry. He also maintains Deutz “Train the Trainer” status.
