NEW VIDEO - Innovation Helps Elder Corp Grow

May 4, 2022

Elder Corporation, Des Moines, IA celebrated 60 years in business in 2020.

In 2013, Maintainer sold them a 21' long Lube Van body, one of the largest ever built by Maintainer. Elder continues to grow, so in 2021, they decided to add a second Lube Truck to their maintenance fleet. This video highlights the new truck and some of the innovation involved. Due to material and design advancements, the new truck was 3000 pounds lighter than the old truck! Plus, the new design allows the technicians to work much more efficiently.
