Thunder Creek Equipment

Thunder Creek Equipment and its parent company, LDJ Manufacturing, have hired Larry Lea, the former director of sales of Mahindra USA, as the organization's new vice president of sales. Lea, who has spent his entire career in the agriculture and heavy equipment sales market, will manage the organization's decentralized national sales team, while also working with the company's product, production and engineering teams to help lead strategic product development and growth.

Thunder Creek Equipment and its parent company, LDJ Manufacturing, have appointed Ben Cox as the company's president. Cox previously spent more than three decades at Pella Corporation, the central Iowa-based building products manufacturer. Cox brings extensive sales, finance, business strategy and leadership experience to Thunder Creek.

Thunder Creek Equipment has launched the all new MTO service, fuel and lube trailer, which features flexibility for handling up to five different fluid types, including fresh oil, grease, reclaim, diesel exhaust fluid and diesel fuel. The MTO was designed from the ground-up to be Thunder Creek's most flexible, most practical and most economical solution for the construction industry, coming in at a fraction of the cost of a lube truck, according to the manufacturer.

Thunder Creek Equipment (Booth S65029 in the South Hall) will exhibit the latest in fuel and fluid handling technologies at ConExpo 2020, including the next evolution of the company's exclusive multi-tank platform that allows contractors to transport bulk diesel and service fluids to job sites without requiring a CDL or HAZMAT.

Managing the flow of fuel in compressed, urban environments is a challenge many contractors in the country's largest cities face on a daily basis. On many metropolitan job sites, fueling becomes a juggling act of servicing core heavy equipment, but also generators, lighting structures and other onsite assets that require around-the-clock energy.

Thunder Creek Equipment and its parent company, LDJ Manufacturing, announced that Brad Jungling has been appointed as the company's newest president. Jungling joins Thunder Creek from Pella Corporation, the Iowa-based building products manufacturer. Jungling brings to Thunder Creek more than 30 years of experience, including specialization in manufacturing operations management and continuous business process improvement.

Thunder Creek Equipment has expanded its multi-tank platform of diesel fuel hauling solutions to include a new medium-duty truck body — the Multi-Tank Upfit — that can haul bulk diesel on the road without requiring a CDL or HAZMAT endorsement (Title 49 (CFR49) – local regulations may apply).

Thunder Creek Equipment has made a series of detailed improvements to its Multi-Tank Trailer (MTT) fuel and service platform that allows users to legally haul up to 920 gallons of diesel without a CDL or HAZMAT endorsement (Title 49 (CFR49)*. The MTT updates are highlighted by a new electric manifold that automatically shuts off tank valves after fueling to ensure legal transportation and provide protection against users accidentally leaving a valve open, which could subject them to moving violations.
