SAINT-GEORGES, Que. -- Train Trailer Rentals has placed an order for 700 Manac trailers, which the company believes to be the single largest Canadian trailer order ever.
“Seven hundred vans, one order, one basic specification is, to the best of my knowledge, the largest Canadian trailer order ever seen by any manufacturer. Our ability to secure this business from Train Trailer Rentals is based on years of collaboration and mutual support. It is also a tribute to our employees’ commitment to providing a cost competitive product, the solid design of our UltraPlate model and an excellent level of service,” said Charles Dutil, president of Manac.
Production of the trailers will begin in the first quarter of 2014 and will be completed by the end of the third quarter, Manac announced.
“After recently amalgamating Westvan and Train Trailer Rentals, this transaction secures our position as a leader in the full service trailer rental sector in Canada,” said Rick Kloepfer, president of Train Trailer Rentals. “We were focused on quality and performance in the purchase of these trailers. We’re certain the team at Manac will provide comprehensive, leading edge support, which is extremely important to us.”
