Oct. 11, 2023 - An on-site mechanical repair company owned and operated by a local U.S. Marine Corps veteran is rapidly expanding its operational footprint.
Mobile Techs is headquartered in Coral Springs and offers 24/7 mobile mechanical servicing for heavy-duty commercial vehicles and industrial equipment.
It will open a new location at 11118 S. Cleveland St. in Fort Myers in the coming weeks.
Strong demand for its services from major industrial companies in the Sunshine State have the company also eyeing a third location in a prominent city in southwestern Florida.
Mobile Techs mainly services heavy duty trucks, trailers, cranes, booms, conveyors, truck-mounted forklifts, material handling equipment, and other hydraulic equipment.
The company services equipment at its clients’ job sites, or dispatches directly to immobile vehicles should they break down off site.
The service saves clients time and money by getting their equipment up and running without having to wait days or weeks for an appointment.
Owned by Luis Ferrer, a Gulf War-era Marine and graduate of the University of Central Florida, Mobile Techs already has 18 employees and will soon hire more.
It will also be adding to its 13-truck fleet.
Ferrer credits Mobile Techs’ efficiency for the company’s success and rapid growth.
The company does repairs for clients that would sometimes require multiple mechanics to complete.
“We pride ourselves not just on our quality repair services, but on our efficiency,” said Ferrer. “As any company that uses industrial equipment knows, if one of those pieces of equipment fails, jobs can slow to a grinding halt. That downtime can cost our clients tens of thousands of dollars, if not more. Our business model is specifically designed to alleviate that concern. We can fix forklifts, hydraulics and change tires, for example, all in one trip. I think that’s why we’ve been so successful.”
