In 2010 MTS came upon an opportunity to purchase A&W Equipment in St.Rose. The owners of A&W expressed that they were going to close and wanted to retain jobs for their loyal employees as well as a strong following of customers that would need parts and service. This purchase created the 3rd location for MTS. 

Currently, MTS is growing by adding a Location in Jerseyville Il. To better serve the customers in that area. Doing this has made MTS a large Equipment Dealer in Central Illinois while still keeping a connection to each of our service areas, by having local community members managing and running the locations, keeping a personal relationship with our customers while offering better pricing and service options.
