1/18/2019 Vander Haag's Joins HDA Truck Pride
HDA Truck Pride welcomes our newest member, Vander Haag’s. With 6 locations spanning Iowa, South Dakota, Missouri and Indiana; Vander Haag’s 80-year reputation solidifies their presence in the Midwest.
In 1939, John C. Vander Haag, Sr., started the South Side Junkyard, a scrap iron and metal business which supported the war effort, in Sanborn, Iowa. The business grew, adapted to the needs of the marketplace and eventually took on the family name.
Their successful philosophy has always been “When our customers’ needs change, so do we!” John Vander Haag, Sr. saw the need to provide quality recycled salvaged parts in the later years of the war when new parts became more and more difficult to obtain. In 1955, John Jr. took over the business. He moved the headquarters to Spencer, Iowa to better service their customers’ needs for parts and service. His vision has expanded under the current leadership of John M. Vander Haag which has enabled them to become a recognized leader nationwide in the Used Truck Sales, Parts, Service, and Equipment Industry.
“Vander Haag's is proud to be the newest member of the HDATP organization. We look forward to expanding our supplier base and taking advantage of all the member benefits HDATP has to offer”, says Tom Labat, Purchasing Manager for Vander Haag’s. “We anticipate additional growth through their network as our company continues to expand and support our customer’s needs.”
Vander Haag’s has over thirty service technicians, with experts in Cummins, CAT, Detroit, and more. They have sixty bays, a full-service body shop, 55’ paint booth, alignment rack, and complete diagnostic equipment.
“We are excited to welcome Vander Haag’s to HDA Truck Pride. Their willingness to embrace change, adjust their direction and go above and beyond for their customer’s needs make them a perfect fit for the HDA Truck Pride family,” says Nikki Paschall, Director of Marketing.
