In 1959, Ed Reed opened a repair shop focusing on commercial truck sales and service in Claremont, NH. The company was named Ed's Equipment Service and they sold and serviced International trucks. In 1966, Ed built a new facility at 287 Washington Street in Claremont, NH. Ed worked with his brother, my father, Frank Reed, as his service manager. In 1981, while I was in high school, I started working at the dealership sweeping floors, washing trucks and putting away parts. I worked in various positions over the years and in December of 1993 I purchased the company and renamed it S.G. Reed Truck Services, Inc.
We have expanded our business, offering additional services from a dedicated staff. We have increased our parts inventory to meet the demands of the ever-changing truck industry. We added a towing division and it has grown into one of the largest fleets in northern New England. In May of 2013 we purchased a new facility at 939 John Stark Highway, just over the Newport line, exactly 3 miles east of our original dealership. We are looking forward to many more years of serving you, the customer, with exceptional service.
Our mission statement is quite simple. We strive each and every day to provide our customers with unparalleled service. We focus on meeting the needs of you, our commercial truck customers, whether you have one truck or 1,000 trucks in your fleet. We are dedicated to building lasting relationships with our customers who deserve and appreciate our commitment to them. We are very proud of the relationships we have developed, some several generations old.
I personally thank our dedicated staff and loyal customers who have made our continued growth and success possible.
