At one point, Merrill Axle & Wheel Service grew to three locations in the Denver metro area and prior to World War II had shops in Nebraska, Iowa and California. Marcellus S. Merrill was continuously seeking new equipment, and went on to invent the world’s first dynamic electronic wheel balancer (pictured here), an original of which can be seen in our shop today.
