About Us

From Heavy Roots, We Have Continued to Serve & Grow

Since its founding in 1994 as a vehicular service and asset management company called Heavy Equipment Services, Helm Truck & Equipment grew from a dozen employees focused on maintaining the fleet of heavy-duty trucks and trailers for our parent company, The Helm Group, to triple our initial size while shifting focus from primarily serving our internal customers to overwhelmingly serving more than 80% external customers. Now boasting twenty service bays, an expanded fabrication shop, 5-ton overhead crane, a 90′ truck & trailer lube bay and more, Helm Truck & Equipment has expanded repair capabilities to include agricultural equipment, autos & pickups, construction equipment, radiators, RVs and even buses and quarry equipment.

Of course, we still do just about every type of service imaginable on the heavy-duty trucks and trailers that got us started. Additionally, we still manage and maintain the extensive fleet of equipment and vehicles used by the Helm Group on hundreds of projects across the Midwest.

Our former brand, Heavy, functioned alongside other divisions of the Helm Group such as Mechanical, Civil, and Conmat. Nearly everyone in the Midwest has seen one of these brand names emblazoned on vehicles with the old black oval logos with white type stating their names. In 2020, The Helm Group transitioned to a new identity which reflects the company’s amazing growth and wide ranging array of skills. Refocusing on the Helm name reflects our commitment to keeping the divisions tightly integrated Рcommunicating internally, sharing knowledge & skill, and especially sharing the values that have come to be synonymous within our work family: integrity, respect, hard work and unflagging service to our customers.

What that means is when you consider Helm Truck & Equipment for your service, sales, parts or rental needs, you can be sure that we aren’t just another option – we’re as committed to exceeding our customers’ expectations as the entire Helm Group has been since 1946. We take the time to listen to and understand each customer’s unique needs and challenges. Each one of our team members is dedicated to solving those problems, going above and beyond, opening up early, working late – whatever it takes – all to make sure you are back on the road or back on the job in no time.

That’s the Helm Difference.
