ML Utilities Acquires Cherokee Truck Equipment
To Our ML Utilities and Cherokee Truck Equipment Customers,
We’re thrilled to announce that effective April 30, 2022, ML Utilities has acquired Cherokee Truck Equipment, LLC,expanding our footprint and range of customized services to support our growing customer base throughout Tennessee, Georgia, and the surrounding region.
It is an exciting time for both companies, our group of talented employees, and of course, you, our customer. Cherokee has upheld a tradition of providing its customers with exceptional services for over 40 years, and we’re proud to join forces with such an outstanding team.
At ML Utilities, we’ve built our reputation as a “one-call” solution provider for fleet maintenance, compliance inspections, on/off-site repair, and management services to the utility sector since 2017. By joining forces with Cherokee, it will help us better deliver on that value proposition because of their exceptional skill-set and complimentary service offerings. Similar to our purchase of Utility Equipment Service (UES) last year, this is an ideal partnership, as Cherokee’s culture aligns closely with ours. Their values of service, safety, and caring for one another, are deeply rooted and we’ll continue to honor their legacy every day.
The acquisition includes Cherokee’s 20,000 sq. ft. facility in Chattanooga, and its 15,000 sq. ft. branch in Mableton, Georgia, near Atlanta – growing our footprint throughout the region with additional mobile and in-shop services. Our talented team of technicians, support fleet owners and customers throughout Maryland, North Carolina, Tennessee, Georgia, Virginia, South Carolina, Florida, Alabama, Kentucky, Indiana, and Ohio.
This synergistic partnership enables us to provide customers in the truck and utility equipment industry with more complete “one-call” cradle to grave services. From building and upfitting equipment, to offering comprehensive maintenance plans, inspection services, and even disposal of used assets, you will now have access to comprehensive support throughout your equipment’s life cycle.
Cherokee’s core capabilities include equipment diagnosis, testing, inspections, preventative maintenance, repairs, as well as a full-service web-based parts and equipment division which operates in a stand-alone location in Chattanooga. Additionally, Cherokee sells new and used truck equipment and specializes in truck upfitting packages for railroad operations. Simply put, it’s a great fit and now we’ll be able to provide you with more comprehensive “one-call” solutions.
