Darrell Hourine and Victor Perez of Quality Services Corp. have spent the last six months repairing trucks, trailers and refrigeration units in the company’s 8,100-square-foot Perry facility and made a reputation as the area’s go-to service center.
Some of their best customers came out Thursday morning to thank them for their service when the Perry-Area Chamber of Commerce hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony. Among the customers were the city of Perry and several local businesses, such as AccuJet and Quick Oil.
“We’ve got off to a good start here in Perry,” said Quality Services Corp. President John O’Halloran. He said his father founded the company in 1988, and Perry makes their fifth service center. They also have shops in Des Moines, Marshalltown, Ottumwa and South St. Paul, Minn.
Perry-Area Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Bob Wilson welcomed O’Halloran and Hourine to the Perry business family. Perez is currently serving Iowa National Guard duty and was absent for the Thursday event, which included coffee from the Perry Perk coffeehouse and donuts from the Perry Hy-Vee.
Chamber attendees included Perry Public Works Department Director Jack Butler, Perry Public Works Department Assistant Director Josh Wuebker, Perry City Administrator Sven Peterson, Raccoon River Valley Bicycle Co. owner Lee Coons, Perry Hy-Vee Director Matt May, AccuJet Manager Mindy Baxter, AccuJet President Kyle Baxter, AccuJet Office Manager Chrissy Von Behren Danger, Quick Oil President Rod Gittens, Quick Oil Service Manager Richard Bryant, Raccoon Valley Bank Accounting and Operations Supervisor Diane Vallejo, Raccoon Valley Bank Retail Banking Officer Kathy Hoskinson, Peters Service Center President Jon Peters and Peters Service Center hydrologist Scott Hughes.
The shop boasts two cat mascots, Mack and Kenworth.
