MISSISSAUGA, Ont. — Glasvan Great Dane has ended its dealer relationship with Capacity of Texas and instead will be offering Autocar shunt tractors as its exclusive Ontario distributor.
Glasvan officials say the new partnership will offer “industry leading shunt trucks that offer exceptional durability and maximum productivity.”
And Autocar itself was equally enthusiastic about the deal.
“Autocar is thrilled to become business partners with such a knowledgeable and professional organization as Glasvan,” said Eric Schwartz, director of sales with Autocar. “Our ability to design and build quality shunt trucks with the most desirable features and specifications, along with Glasvan’s ability to support and service customers, makes our partnership one of the strongest in OEM distribution.”
The companies say Autocar shunt trucks will be offered in DoT and off-road configurations with fuel consumption reducing spec’s as standard. The cab features an e-coat process, enabling it to withstand Canadian winters. The Autocar shunt trucks will be powered by Cummins engines with Allison transmissions.
Autocar says its shunt trucks have the industry’s fastest system for charging trailer brakes and come with a wider track steering system providing excellent maneuverability in tight spaces.
“Autocar and Glasvan can look forward to many years together, jointly fine tuning features and custom options to ensure best total value in Canada,” Schwartz added.
Meanwhile, George Cobham Jr., vice-president of sales with Glasvan Great Dane added “Glasvan will continue to fully support the new and used Capacity equipment we have provided to our sales, lease and rental customers.”
