Sedalia, Missouri, August 17, 2018 – Sedalia Showcase
This year’s Sedalia Showcase featured Load King’s Sedalia, Missouri location. Load King LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Custom Truck One Source, opened the new location at 5105 Pelham Drive in May of 2018. The new facility, located in Thomas Meadows Industrial Park, occupies 28,000 square feet of manufacturing and office space.
“We’re honored to be selected as this year’s Sedalia Showcase and have enjoyed partnering with the Sedalia and Pettis County Economic Development Office for this event,” said Dan Nowlin, Vice President of Operations for Load King’s Sedalia facilities.
Load King has been producing heavy equipment solutions in Pettis county since 2008. However, they were previously under the Custom Fabrication and Equipment brand name. In February of 2018, Custom Fabrication rebranded to Load King, the premier manufacturing arm of Custom Truck One Source.
For 14 consecutive years, community and state partners have joined forces during the Sedalia Showcase. They seek to highlight business opportunities available in Sedalia and Pettis County, Missouri. The Sedalia Showcase is a strategic initiative of Economic Development Sedalia-Pettis County. They were, therefore, excited to feature Load King this year as a leading employer in the region. Jessica Craig, Executive Director of Economic Development Sedalia-Pettis County, spoke about featuring Load King. “Sedalia and Pettis County are thrilled to partner with Load King to celebrate launching this new manufacturing facility.”
Activities during the event included a ribbon cutting for the new facility, guided facility tours and lunch. During the tours, visitors had the opportunity to view Load King’s new manufacturing facility. It is where they produce a variety of products for Load King’s specialized equipment line. They displayed completed trucks, giving visitors an opportunity to see Load King products installed and ready to go to work.
