In the early 1970's, Val Leefers was a partner in a shop in central Illinois, learning fuel injection and enjoying working on pumps. As the clientele grew, an opportunity presented itself. Val's partner bought him out, and Val built a small building outside of Carlinville, Illinois, acquired $1300 of inventory, and hung out his shingle. Area Diesel Service was born in 1973.

Things started slow. "We almost starved to death that first year; I think we made about a hundred bucks a month," Val said. Val loved what he was doing, though, and so he persisted. Long hours, working on the weekends, and doing whatever was needed to make the customer happy slowly started paying off. Val was able to hire more people, diversify into turbochargers, and build both his inventory and his reputation for running a quality shop that produced quality work.


As Area Diesel Service grew, so did the building. The location in Carlinville has been expanded four times over the years to make room for a pump department, turbo department, warehouse, and state-of-the-art machine shop.

In 1984, Area Diesel Service opened a second location outside of Des Moines, Iowa, to better serve our clients west of the Mississippi River. Today, Area Diesel Service has over 35 full-time employees and factory-trained technicians. Through the core values Val Leefers started with -- hard work, dedication to producing a quality product, ongoing development of technical skills and going the extra distance to ensure customer satisfaction


Area Diesel Service has established itself as one of the top diesel fuel system experts in the Midwest. Let us put our expertise to work for you.


In early 2012 the Iowa Branch completed an extensive remodel and expansion. We are very proud of our upgraded building and we invite you to stop in to see the facility!
