West Van Trailer Rentals Grows with Acquisition

MISSISSAUGA — West Van Inc. became one of the largest trailer rental providers in Canada yesterday after it acquired all of the shares of Train Trailer Rentals from PLM trailers.

Principal of West Van, and original founder of Train Trailer Rentals, Richard Gladden, said that he’s thrilled what the acquisition brings to the company. “The team at Train Trailers has the same dedication to quality and service that we have always had at West Van,” he noted, adding that he’s confident the two operations “will blend seamlessly.”

General Manager of Train Trailer Wayne Rapelje noted they were excited at being able to “broaden our service offerings and market reach.”

West Van and Train Trailer Rentals provide transport trailer rentals — dry vans, reefers, container chassis, as well as a full line of specialized trailers. They operate full service repair shops with mobile service in Mississauga and Calgary.
