DEUTZ Service Center Chicago will open at 1250 Davis Road in Elgin, IL, on October 1, 2017. The new Service Center will serve customers in Northern and East Central Illinois as well as Northern Indiana.  

“We’re excited to open this new Service Center in the Chicagoland area,” says Dominick A. “Nick” Vermet, General Manager for DEUTZ Power Center Midwest, DEUTZ Service Center St. Louis and DEUTZ Service Center Chicago. “We’re always seeking ways to help our customers improve their uptime, efficiency and productivity, and DEUTZ Service Center Chicago will now help us provide a higher level of support in a very important geographic market.” 

DEUTZ Service Centers provide regularly scheduled maintenance and emergency service of DEUTZ engines, either at the Service Center location or at the customer’s site via traveling service technicians. Service Centers also sell genuine DEUTZ parts and fluids.

“We’re starting out with two fully equipped field service trucks, making it possible for us to go to our customers when they need us,” Vermet says. “Drive-up customers will benefit from our extensive parts counter and receive expert assistance from our in-house technicians.”

Sal Mangialonini will be the branch manager for DEUTZ Service Center Chicago, while Ron Schmidt is the location’s service supervisor. Mangialonini has 35 years of diesel engine experience, with time spent in sales, service, parts and management for companies including SES, Inc., Freightliner, Kenworth and Detroit Diesel. Schmidt comes to DEUTZ Service Center from Wolter Power Systems with 13 years of experience as a journeyman field technician and welder/fabricator in the industrial equipment industry. He also maintains a “Train the Trainer” status with DEUTZ Corporation.

“Sal has a great reputation in the Chicago and Northwest Indiana marketplace, and Ron offers a tremendous amount of experience with DEUTZ engines,” Vermet says. “Both Sal and Ron have the kind of leadership skills and industry knowledge that can help us take DEUTZ Service Center Chicago to the next level.”
