The property was acquired in 1963 and served for decades as an assembly plant and rental truck repair workshop, as well as home to a local U-Haul marketing company office. In 1994, it transitioned to the Company's manufacturing arm known as AMFORM.
The plant manufactured items like utility/furniture/appliance dollies, truck/trailer awnings, key-drop boxes, carriages/housings, tools, U-Haul display signage, and other components and special projects.
Space limitations factored into the AMFORM decision as U-Haul pursued options to better meet its needs and the needs of its Team Members while curbing the need for outsourcing. U-Haul sometimes closes stores and other entities for reasons such as physical plant limitations; long-term strategic plans; shifts in demographics; trends in migration; expansion of its neighborhood dealer network; and the proximity to new or existing U-Haul stores and plants.
