Locally owned and family operated, Frame Service was founded in 1948 by Jim Ernst as a downtown Fort Wayne business. Having established an early and consistent reputation for excellent and timely service, Frame Service has become the Fort Wayne area’s most reliable destination for assistance with all of your truck and trailer maintenance and repair needs.
As highway hauling created an increased dependence on truck and trailer maintenance, Frame Service moved to its current location at the corner of U.S. Highway 33 and Washington Center Road for the convenience of its customers.
The family dedication of Frame Service is alive today with owner Barry Ernst, son of founder Jim. Barry began working with his father in 1979 as a technician, learning all aspects of the family business from the ground up. Today Barry Ernst is in charge of a company that continues to excel in dependable and efficient maintenance and repair for your truck fleet. Barry attributes the company’s success in large part to its guiding force – rock-solid American family values. Says Barry: “I’m proud and honored to work with a great team here at Frame Service. I enjoy the challenge of solving our customers’ problems, and I genuinely value and respect each of our clients.”
As a locally owned company, your dollars spent at Frame Service stay in the local community. Frame Service supports many community organizations, and is proud to be a Fort Wayne company.
