U.P. Truck Center has been building truck mounted log racks since 1985. We have some of the most qualified welder/fabricators in the area, bringing 50 years of experience to our Fabrication & Welding Department. Many features have been added and experience has brought the quality of our racks to the exceptional level we see today. Our customers can take credit for many of the features we offer presently, as they are the innovators of their industry. We remain committed not only to listen, but in fact pride ourselves to welcome new ideas and practical solutions from you, our loyal customers and friends.
Our Fabrication & Welding Department does versatile steel fabrication & welding. They pride themselves in their quality, reliability & meeting timelines for our customers. They do structural steel welding & fabricating, custom fabrication products, trailer chassis, aluminum welding, and much more. The welding capabilities our shop has includes: aluminum, stainless & carbon steel; also, FCAW, GTAW, GMAW, SMAW and ARCAIR arc. These technicians also routinely extend, shorten or repair truck frame rails with the precision of factory manufacturing.
U.P. Truck Center has installed hundreds of new lift axles using methods and tooling that have been duplicated by the manufacturers themselves. We use a unique plumbing system, keeping a clean look in the cab and an efficient and safe installation out on the truck frame. We have installed many dump bodies, stretching the range from 8’ to well over 20’. With both our customers and ourselves suffering at times with improperly installed equipment from some of the “specialists”, we both benefit greatly from the installations done in our own controlled shop.
