“The acquisition of ATDynamics aligns with our strategic direction to assist our fleet customers in improving fuel efficiency and increasing tire life,” commented Stemco President, Todd Anderson.
“It continues to build a solid platform from which we can offer a more complete line of aerodynamic products. The patented, award-winning TrailerTail technology can improve a trailer’s fuel efficiency by over five per cent without hindering cargo capacity, loading or unloading,” he added.
Bob Montgomery, VP of Stemco's ITMS group, who will lead the combined business, commented, “I am especially excited to unite the talented team at ATDynamics with the Stemco family, expanding the portfolio of products we will now be able to offer, and growing the opportunities for innovation targeted at increasing safety, reducing fuel consumption and tyre wear and reducing pollutants.”
