Days Corporation marks a hundred years as an Elkhart-based company. It is a prime example of sustained and diversified growth. It was founded by John Days in 1913 and began as a drayage delivery service with a horse and wagon. This developed into Days Transfer, a regional trucking company. Since that time, it has grown into a corporation with six divisions that range from manufacturing hydraulic systems to heavy equipment moving.
Selling the assets and transportation right of Days Transfer in 1961, Days continued as Days Moving and Storage. This new incarnation offered warehousing and local delivery, machinery rigging and moving, as well as household goods moving. Growth in all of these services, including a franchise as an Allied Van Lines agency, propelled the company from the ’70s to the early ’90s.
A name change to Days Corporation took place in 1990, along with a major expansion in warehousing and distribution with a new campus of building built along the Indiana Toll Road. Included in the early ’90s expansion was its beginning as a manufacturer of hydraulic lifting and leveling products for the RV, trailer, and specialty vehicle markets. This new division was named Equalizer Systems.
Today, Days Corporation encompasses five divisions in diverse areas, connected by threads that reach back to its original trucking business.
This long-standing division takes pride in its unique blend of skill, equipment, service and dependability. It provides storage, moving, transportation, assembly and disassembly services for industrial machines and equipment of all sizes and shapes. Days Machinery Moving has more than five decades of experience specializing in complete, turn-key plant relocation, hassle free machinery moving, rigging, export packing and electrical services.
