US trailer manufacturer, Wabash National, has reached 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,” explained Dick Giromini, President and Chief Executive Officer of Wabash National Corporation.
Beginning 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, Oregon, and Sacramento and Fontana, California, will add to the geographic footprint of TEC Equipment’s four existing locations that will sell and service Wabash National, Transcraft and Benson products.
“Our relationship with TEC Equipment provides the opportunity for our retail locations to channel their energies in driving the many growth and diversification efforts already underway, including tank parts and service expansion, mobile service growth, and customer-site service growth opportunities,” said Rick Klein, Vice President and General Manager of Retail.
“We are very excited about our new relationship with Wabash National,” said TEC Equipment Chief Executive Officer and President, Dave Thompson. “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.”
