Who is Messer
Messer Truck Equipment is one of the largest truck equipment distributors and upfitters in northern New England. Started by Walter A. Messer in 1899, Messer Truck Equipment began as W.A. Messer Company, a one-man blacksmithing and ship smithing shop on Union Street in Portland, Maine. Throughout the years, W.A. Messer Co. continued to advance and adapt for the changing times. The name changed in 2004 to what it is known as today, but from the very beginning in 1899 until today, Messer has been known for its hard-work and the value added to the community it serves. Messer Truck Equipment is currently led by Walter’s great-grandson, Jeffrey Messer. Jeffrey also served as NTEA’s (National Truck Equipment Association) 51st president in 2015.
We at Messer are excited for the Ohio expansion. Columbus is a lively city and has a lot of potential for future growth. We can’t wait to partner with local businesses and see how we can assist them in growing.
Our goal at Messer Work Van Solutions is to partner with our local community tradesmen and businesses. We want to help transform their work van fleets into world-class service providers. As we partner to be world class together, then our entire professional community will grow and flourish as we all play our part.
