About Days Corporation
From a 1913 horse-and-wagon delivery service to a 21st Century multi-divisional corporation, Days Corporation is a story of continuous growth and expansion. Days provides a variety of goods, services and solutions, most of them serving the manufacturing base of Elkhart County. We are proud to celebrate over 100 years as a thriving partner to the economic engines of our region and the people who make them work.
Days Corporation marks over 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.
- 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.
Since that time, it has grown into a corporation with four divisions that range from manufacturing hydraulic systems to heavy equipment moving to export packing and crating, to Distribution and Warehouse solutions.
