Louisville Switching

For nearly 40 years Louisville Switching Service, Inc. has been a family owned business with a reputation for customer service and satisfaction, honesty, fair pricing, and a dedication to providing excellence to our customers.

Since our incorporation in 1973, we have had an extensive relationship with Kalmar Ottawa Trucks. We pride ourselves in having a thorough knowledge of the trucking business and a strong dedication to providing our valued customers with the highest quality of services. Those are the foundations upon which we have grown our business.

We are a licensed, authorized motor vehicle dealer with the ability and desire to sell only the highest quality Kalmar Ottawa yard trucks. We also have a garage with nine spacious bays to service our customers' repair needs.

In addition to providing service to our intra-plant (semi trailer spotting) and cartage customers, we sell OEM Ottawa parts, sell and lease new and used Ottawa Trucks, and perform factory warranty work as an Ottawa Service Center.

Over the past four decades, our business has only continued to grow. In 2019, Louisville Switching merged with MH Equipment,  one of the largest and fastest-growing material handling service providers in the United States. The merge enabled us to offer more to our customers over a greater servicer area. We now service the Kalmar Ottawa yard truck and parts needs in the region from our Louisville, KY,  Bowling Green, KY, Paducah, KY, Evansville, IN, and Charleston, WV offices.

The superior services of Louisville Switching have kept customers coming back for nearly 40 years. During that time, we have never compromised the quality of our work or sacrificed our reputation. Over the years we have continued to develop our customer relationships, as more businesses have come on board and allowed us the privilege to serve them. We would consider it a privilege if you would allow Louisville Switching to serve you.

We are a Premier Ottawa Dealer
