Meyer International Trucks was founded by Fred and Kay Meyer of Rice Lake, Wisconsin in August of 1973. After years of working for International Harvester in a variety of positions across Wisconsin, Fred and Kay wanted to return to home to be closer to family in northwest Wisconsin. Not long after returning to Rice Lake, they purchased the local International Harvester dealer, Ostrom Sales in 1973 and were open for business in August of that year. Starting small, they rented a rundown building on the corner of Allen & Main in Rice Lake as the original location for Meyer International Trucks. As the company grew, they quickly outgrew the location in Rice Lake. In 1976, the company bought land for it's current location off of Highway SS in Cameron from Blackhawk Holding Company located in Chicago. Prior to Meyer International Trucks, two businesses that had closed, Span Boats and Gran Prix Trailers, had used the shop.
Since then the current location in Cameron has seen multiple additions to expand the service and parts department while being led in day to day operations by second generation managers, Tim and Jeff Meyer. While times have changed and the original shop has grown, the quality service and attention to detail you will receive from every aspect of this family owned business will be second to none. We invite you to stop by the shop or give us a call, and experience what has made Meyer International Trucks successful for the past four decades.
