Company Wrench held a grand opening celebration at its new Lakeland, Fla., location on May 15.

The grand opening festivities kicked off in the morning with a continental breakfast, and later attendees were treated to a barbecue lunch. Raffle drawings for door prizes were held throughout the day.

Company Wrench’s new Lakeland facility is staffed by a crew of six people, including three service technicians, and maintains an extensive parts inventory including Fleet Guard, Terex Fuchs, Kobelco, Sentry tires and ground engaging parts. The branch offers a full line of Kobelco excavators, Terex Fuchs material handlers, Gehl skid steers, Stanley / LaBounty attachments, Strickland buckets, Screen Machine crushing and screening equipment and the line of dust suppression equipment manufactured by C. W. Machine Worx.

“The grand opening event was held to make local customers aware of who we are, and that we have a full complement of equipment for the construction, scrap and demolition industries,” said Hugh Gordon, national sales director, Company Wrench.

Several members of Company Wrench’s staff were on hand to help launch the new facility, including Lakeland Branch Manager, Phillipp Duesler; Hugh Gordon, national sales director; Brad Hutchinson, owner; Cam Gabbard, president; Jason Templeton, vice president; Debbie Agee, COO; Dick Mizzell, regional manager; and Danny Seal, territory manager.

Company Wrench was founded in 1999 when Brad Hutchinson began operating a truck, trailer and equipment shop and a 24-hour wrecker and recovery service in central Ohio. In 2002, the company became a dealer for Stanley, LaBounty and Beka-Max Auto-Lube Systems. The following year, the company launched a demolition rental fleet, becoming LaBounty’s largest dealer. The company added equipment lines and branched into construction as it has grown, ultimately representing more than 20 manufacturers with locations in Ohio, Florida, Indiana, New Jersey, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee.
