North Dixie Truck and Trailer’s History:
North Dixie Truck and Trailer has a strong history rooted in Lima, Ohio. We are proud to be family owned and operated since 1996.
North Dixie Truck and Trailer Inc. is a Sub-chapter S – Corporation incorporated under the laws of the State of Ohio on March 6, 1996. Calvin E. Roeder purchased 8.4 acres adjacent to his existing trucking company in order to build a 14,000 sq. ft. building that houses a state of the art welding and fabricating center. It was his desire to build a facility that could repair and/or rebuild the numerous tank trailers in his trucking company fleet. Additionally, other bulk liquid chemical transporters similar to the Roeder Cartage Co., Inc. were contacted and the services of North Dixie Truck and Trailer Inc. were marketed to outside customers as well.
On July 1, 2006, North Dixie Truck and Trailer Inc. was purchased by Calvin’s daughters, President,Tina Anderson, Vice-President, Teresa Shulaw and Secretary-Treasurer ,Tammy Orndorff; all, direct, oversee and are responsible for all aspects of company operations. Each provides the company with a well developed management background.
The business expanded in October 2010 by adding a fully stocked parts division, with thousands of inventory items for semi-trucks, van trailers and tanker trailers. Additionally, we have access to tires for those on the National Account Program.
Expansion happened again in August 2011 when 24,000 sq. ft. was added to our maintenance facility, giving us a total of 16 maintenance bays, two Hunter Alignment racks, a wheel balancing machine, and three 24-hr. Emergency Road Service Trucks.
Today, our maintenance staff provides a full service repair facility providing quality repair service and a broad range of welding services to Northwest and West Central Ohio. We offer custom sheet metal fabrication utilizing materials made of light gauge aluminum through heavy gauge stainless steel plate.
