Decades of Growth

I-State Truck Center was created in 2003 by Interstate Companies, Inc., an industrial conglomerate headquartered in Minneapolis. Interstate, a privately held company, has been in continuous operation and based in the Midwest since 1957. It operates six subsidiaries: I-State Truck Center, Interstate PowerSystems, Interstate BearingSystems, Interstate Transport Refrigeration, Interstate IndustrialSystems and Assembly Systems, Inc. Until 1986, Interstate was basically a single product-line company for Detroit Diesel. Starting in 1986, it saw dramatic growth through mergers and acquisitions.
