LONGVIEW, Texas — Capacity of Ontario has won the first annual President’s Award from shunt truck manufacturer Capacity.

“When Capacity of Ontario took over the market nearly three years ago, they didn’t miss a beat,” announced Jerry Looney, national sales director for Capacity. “They have been a perfect fit for us and encompass every aspect of dealer we could ask for. We strongly believe their success is due to their complete offering of new trucks, used trucks, one of the largest shunt truck rental fleets in the Ontario and complete leasing options. They have aggressively marketed the Capacity brand and executed their strong sales strategies for our product. Capacity’s positioning as the premier shunt truck manufacturer in the Ontario market continues to hold one of the strongest market shares for us.”

The award was presented to dealer principal, Jeff Kirby, and vice-president of sales and operations, Michael Kirby.

“We’re humbled and happy to be recognized for this achievement from Capacity,” said Jeff Kirby. “It’s our 39th year in the trucking industry and much of this achievement is due in part to Michael’s hard work in the field which has reaped this reward. I also believe that this success is based on the impact that Allied Specialty Vehicles (ASV) has made with Capacity in guiding them in the organization and focus of their business plans and objectives – all which transcends into the dealer channel. Their investment is making a huge difference within its customer base.”

Capacity also took the opportunity to unveil a new terminal truck, dubbed Sabre. The product was unveiled at Capacity’s global dealer meeting in Shreveport, Louisiana.

“We’re focused and ready to meet the market with this new truck and the response to our company’s vision has been met with great enthusiasm by the dealers. It’s a truly exciting time to be at this place in the company’s history,” said Scott Lord, CEO at Capacity Trucks.
