Montabert plans to soon open an expanded distribution and rebuild facility.

Working within the 50,000 sq. ft. of its existing distribution center in Nashville, Illinois, the company began plans in late 2022 to add remanufacturing and repair capabilities to the facility.

While new capabilities are now offered onsite, the expanded facility officially opens Sept. 28. Construction on the expansion began in March 2023.

Prior to the expansion, rebuilds and repairs of Montabert breakers in the U.S. were handled in a partner facility in Tennessee. Montabert says relocating this work to the expanded facility provides several benefits that enhance the company’s factory-certified rebuild program.

“We now have the capability of lowering breakers up to 15,000 pounds into a pit for safe extraction of power cells and to perform inspections and maintenance,” says Amanda Carpenter, sales office, warehouse and distribution manager at Montabert. “We have also added a factory-trained breaker technician who is dedicated to working on Montabert equipment. The in-house rebuild center offers more visibility into scheduling, allowing accuracy of quoting and timely completion of customer rebuilds.”

According to Montabert, the expansion will enable the company to more efficiently support customers with preventive maintenance of products.

“With the addition of a rebuild and repair center strategically located within our existing U.S. distribution facility in south central Illinois, we are now taking our already industry-leading product support capabilities to the next level,” says Aaron Scarfia, general manager at Montabert. “

Scarfia says the current capabilities at the facility include in-house rebuilds of Montabert’s complete line of hydraulic breakers. In the future, the company will also offer rebuilds for Montabert drifters and its silent demolition line of equipment.

Future plans include adding an industrial parts washer, a paint booth and a second lift table.
