Local Company Is a Go-To for your Industrial Surplus Needs
Writer / Amy Lant-Wenger
Traverse any thoroughfare around northern Indiana, border to border, and it will be easy to see that this Midwestern hub seems always to be in perpetual motion.
It is a leader in the field of agriculture. And it is a reputable force for the recreational vehicle industry. The region has awakened from crisis and demonstrated its resilience from economic hardship to a global pandemic.
With the guidance of a skilled workforce at the helm, there is a myriad of machinery, industrial and otherwise, that is imperative to the function of countless operations. And when a certain part falters, even if it is small enough to fit in the palm of one’s hand, the repercussions can be crippling.
This is where the expertise of Arrow Industrial Sales can, and has been, a true source of rescue for many companies and individuals. With a readily accessible location in rural Millersburg, Indiana, the staff works diligently to ensure that customers can find what they need to preserve valuable time and energy, and to keep the systems flowing at peak efficiency.
The vast majority of the key players behind the ownership of the Millersburg facility are members of the Wingard family, all of whom are brothers, Glen (Research Manager), Daniel (sales, logistics), Chris (Manager), Wayne (sales), Earl (maintenance), and Larry (logistics) and a workforce of 26 employees. It was around 2009 that the brothers took up an interest in scouring auctions specifically targeting surplus industrial inventory. Upon realizing that there was a viable market for both new and reconditioned equipment, they turned that avenue into a business venture.
Arrow Industrial is experienced in spare parts removal, warehouse cleanouts, plant cleanouts, and demolition. They have a fleet of trucks for moving equipment and a professional, licensed, and insured removal crew with more than 110 combined years of experience in the industrial field. Arrow has a wide range of equipment including excavators, heavy haul trucks, and forklifts with up to 75,000 LB capacity. Arrow offers fair prices for the equipment they buy and can get the job done quickly.
Wayne also noted that while many area businesses were greatly impacted by the lingering effects of the coronavirus epidemic, the circumstances gave Arrow Industrial a chance to expand and build upon their customer service experiences. With a number of businesses experiencing service interruptions and other similar issues, companies sometimes found that certain elements of their productivity were fast becoming obsolete, making repairs and replacements difficult to procure in a time of sudden change. Clients discovered that they could count on Arrow Industrial’s staff to deliver results faster, with a clear advantage on being locally based and owned. Wayne added that it is not unusual for the workers to linger beyond the normal hours of operation, awaiting shipments that needed to move expeditiously for companies.
With over 43,000 SKUs Arrow Industrial sells and ships products worldwide daily via FedEx, UPS, USPS, DHL, as well as shipping items via truck freight or providing courier services for time-sensitive items. Arrow also sells a lot of equipment to local businesses, including pallet racking, chain hoists, conveyors and numerous other items in the industrial material handling line.
Arrow Industrial Sales has a 160,000-plus square-foot distribution warehouse in the town of Millersburg, Indiana, most of it filled with inventory. There is an extensive collection of available items that can either be purchased locally, or by visiting the company’s eBay store at ebay.com/str/arrowindustrialsurplus. The business is located at 230 Wabash Street in Millersburg, and the phone number is 574-349-6575. They can also be reached via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
