Bonnell Industries Celebrates 60 Year of Business

October 15th marks 60 years since Bonnell Industries officially started business in Dixon, IL. We’ve grown from a one man welding service founded by J.L. Bonnell, to being one of the leading truck equipment distributors across the United States. Through our nationwide distributor network, we are a major supplier of snow and ice, road maintenance and leaf vacuum equipment for municipalities throughout the country. 

We’ve been at our current location since 1972, and last year expanded our manufacturing facility with the opening of a new building. Dedicated to our truck install division, this much-needed new building has freed up space for other manufacturing lines as we continue to see growth.We also recently welcomed a COO, Eric Montagno, to the team. We are excited to see the positive changes Eric is putting into place to help improve operations. 

2020 hasn’t been the easiest year for businesses across the country, and indeed around the world. Throughout the global pandemic, we’ve worked hard to keep our commitments to both customers and staff, while also keeping everyone safe. At Bonnell, we take pride in treating customers like friends. Our doors have always been open, and we’ve always been ready to welcome any visitor with a smile and service, second to none. That’s just how we do business. Although COVID-19 has changed the way we do some things, it hasn’t changed how much we care about the well-being of our customers, employees, family and local community. We plan on being around for a while, at least another 60 years. 

We have come a long way since our humble beginnings, and are always sure to maintain the dedication to our customers and the quality of our products and service. 

​Thank you to everyone who has contributed to our success over the past 60 years. We look forward to serving you into the next century.
