Wabash National now has an agreement with Portland-based TEC Equipment to provide sales, parts, and service for Wabash National, Transcraft and Benson brand trailers in California, Oregon and Washington.
"The agreement with TEC Equipment is one more step in executing Wabash National Corporation's strategic growth plan as we expand access and service along the West Coast," said Dick Giromini, president and chief executive officer of Wabash National.
Beginning in May 2014, TEC Equipment will facilitate the transition of three Wabash National Trailer Centers to independent dealer facilities operated by TEC Equipment. These locations in Portland, Ore., and Sacramento and Fontana, Calif., will add to the geographic footprint of TEC Equipment's four existing locations that will sell and service Wabash National, Transcraft and Benson products.
"TEC Equipment has extensive expertise in the business and a long history of providing effective transportation solutions to its customer base," said Brent Yeagy, group president of Commercial Trailer Products at Wabash National. "We are pleased to welcome TEC Equipment to the team as we strengthen our competitive presence on the West Coast, while continuing to expand and elevate our dealer network to provide the level of support our customers expect."
"As the largest full-service truck dealership on the West Coast, TEC is positioned to service small and large fleets alike as our trailer sales and support division grows with the addition of Wabash National's portfolio of high-quality vans and platform trailers." said TEC Equipment Chief Executive Officer and President Dave Thompson.
TEC Equipment will be fully stocked with new model year Wabash National dry and refrigerated vans, and Transcraft and Benson platform trailers, in addition to being outfitted with a full selection of parts through Aurora Parts & Accessories, the exclusive supplier of authorized parts for Wabash National.
