MTI Equipment, a Charles Machine Works company and distributor of HDD equipment, recently completed construction of its new facility in North Port, Florida. 

Moving from its longtime location in Englewood, Florida, company officials say the new facility — 38,000 total square feet — carries a larger inventory, offers improved service capabilities and is more conveniently located for customers.

“This is the world’s largest facility dedicated to refurbishing horizontal directional drills and HDD support equipment,” says Alain Trimble, president of the company.  “It’s all designed to help us accomplish our goal of being the most trusted supplier of used underground equipment in the world.”

One of the new facility’s biggest benefits is how it will affect a key part of MTI’s business model — its RE-HDD process, an extensive 80-point inspection and equipment refurbishment process.

“It’s what sets MTI apart from the rest of the industry,” Trimble says. “And our new facilities will give us the resources to refine our processes and ensure our customers are a receiving the highest quality pre-owned drills on the market.”    

The new location, conveniently located off Interstate 75 at 2423 Commerce Parkway, features 26 service bays, including dedicated space for service work, welding, fabrication, paint prep, a spray booth and more. Customers will also benefit from state-of-the-art indoor and outdoor training areas where they can receive expert instruction on drill functions and the use of HDD locating equipment.

MTI is planning a grand opening celebration for its new facility from noon to 5 p.m. Wednesday, June 13.
