About Us

Since 1982, Craftsmen has made and continues to make its mark on the Transportation Industry by providing the products and services essential to the operation and success of all business types from Owner Operators and small Trucking Companies to Large Private Fleets.  Over the past 35 years, we have grown our business and truly believe we are “Selling you more than a trailer!”  Craftsmen not only offers our customers the highest quality equipment, but we also support those products “after the sale” with our talented and experienced team, extended service hours, a huge parts inventory, and a premier warranty program.  While many of our customers have much in common, we also recognize that each and every customer has a unique operation.  With this is mind, we constantly work to not only provide solutions that allow them to reduce their operational costs, but also take advantage of their next opportunity in today’s marketplace.


We are proud to be the second generation leading our family business.  We believe our success is based on the work ethic and ideals of our father, Joe Helmsing, our talented long-term employees, our loyal and successful customers, and the continued reinvestment into our business.  Over the past 3 decades, Craftsmen has built a reputation and made a commitment to the Transportation Industry that is second to none.  Today, we continue this commitment to longstanding memberships and involvement with the following organizations:


  • National Trailer Dealers Association (NTDA)
  • National Truck Equipment Association (NTEA)
  • Missouri Trucking Association (MoTA)
  • Truckload Carriers Association (TCA)
  • Iowa Motor Truck Association (IMTA)
  • Missouri Dump Truck Association (MDTA).
