MISSISSAUGA, Ont. — Truck News has learned that Breadner Trailer Sales and Wabash National are very close to finalizing their agreement that would see the Canadian trailer dealer become part of the U.S. manufacturer’s network.
Breadner spokesman Craig Sterling, says the agreement would cover the companies 10 locations, which are spread out coast-to-coast from Moncton, N.B. to Vancouver, B.C.
While he says the first Wabash product to roll north will be the company’s flagship the Duraplate van design, other uniquely Canadian models are sure to follow.
“The really nice thing about Wabash, is that they’ve built their business around providing products to meet the needs of the regions they operate in,” he says. “They will be introducing to Canada a lot of multi-axle products targeted specifically at the weight requirements we have here.”
A Wabash spokesperson would not comment at this time except to say the deal has not officially closed at this time.
