THE HSI DURATEK DIFFERENCE
Not only are we positioned to provide quality products to OEM’s, but we can also provide quick turn-around service for axle breakdowns/replacements. We cut out the middle man, making it easy for our dealers to take care of their customers in a timely manner.
Our engineering team is up for any custom axle challenge, dedicating our design resources to finishing your project. If you have an application that needs a creative approach we will work with you to find the right solution. Orders can be submitted on our torsion axle form or our spring axle order form. Just another way, we work to save you time.
Customer service at HSI Duratek is phenomenal! They were able to provide my buddies and I with a same day turnaround on an axle so we didn’t miss our CO snowmobiling weekend trip. My friends and I were driving from Belvidere, IL to Colorado but had an axle break that left us stranded in Des Moines. We got the trailer to a repair shop and searched for a place that could provide us with what we needed. Jeff Godron took great care of us and the production team stayed late to ensure we were back on the road. Four other buddies were flying in that night so the downtime would have sucked. Thanks again HSI Duratek!!
Thanks for the swag!!!! Just wanted to let you and the guys know we appreciate your help on getting us the axle in a rush. We are extremely grateful. Thank you!!!
We started with HSI about 6 years ago and have grown our businesses together. HSI’s expansion to Duratek has been a wonderful addition to an already great tire supplier. Jeff Godron adds the “personal” side of the business that many lacks. Being able to order axles and tires together makes great business sense to us. The turn around time on replacement axles differentiates us from our competition. HSI Duratek helped us in many instances take care of the customer extremely fast.
ABOUT HSI DURATEK
Founded in 1927
In 1927 the Holt family first started the business with the opening of Holt Firestone, a tire business in Des Moines IA. Since then it has diversified into different divisions in the tire and axle industry, including Holt Sales Inc. which started as a spinoff of the original Holt Tire in 1996. Originally selling reconditioned trailer wheels. As the business grew, there was a demand for a complete, trailer tire and wheel assembly for the OEM trailer industry, in the upper Midwest. Holt Sales rose to the opportunity and concentrated on bringing an excellent service to the wholesale market for ST tire and wheel assemblies.
Around the year 2000, Holt Sales also expanded heavily into the small agricultural market supplying manufacturers with a quality product that they could rely on. The next decade would see Holt Sales move to a new mounting and distribution facility six blocks east of the Iowa State Capitol and shorten their name to HSI. In 2015 HSI Duratek expanded into axle manufacturing and supplying trailer components, offering both spring and torsion axles as well as many custom options to meet our growing market demands.
As we continue to provide solutions and excellent service through our knowledgeable team members to each of our valued customers, we look forward to providing superior care, service, and solutions to you and your company.
