“It’s all in the name. One of the largest providers of vocational trucks in North America, Custom Truck One Source (NYSE: CTOS) is a dedicated one-stop shop for specialized commercial truck-and-heavy-equipment solutions. If you’re not sure what a vocational truck is, think of the jobsite juggernauts that do heavy lifting, reaching, digging, and pulling: cranes, bucket trucks, diggers, hydroexcavators, trailers, water trucks, hi-rail rotary dump trucks, forestry trucks, trash trucks, heavy haulers, and the like.
A mainstay of infrastructure-focused industries that depend on trucks with serious muscle, stamina, safety features, and flexibility — such as construction, building supply, forestry, telecom, and energy — work trucks often require significant design modifications to meet the demands of the jobs they do.
Custom Truck makes most of these vehicles with innovative alterations to suit a dizzying number of requirements as part of an ecosystem that also includes financing and auction capabilities, state of-the-art production and service facilities for tool and belt testing and repair, a 24-hour call center, and a best-of-breed parts department staffed with certified, knowledgeable specialists.
On a mission to help their customers be as profitable as possible while getting their jobs done faster, safer, and more efficiently, Custom Truck partners with them to solve their most challenging problems and increase uptime. In addition to maintaining an 8,951-vehicle rental fleet, the Kansas City-based enterprise offers new and used equipment sales, rentals, customization, and manufacturing, all supported by worldclass service, financing solutions, and in-house auction solutions for reliable asset liquidity.
Their unique cradle-to grave approach provides custom support at every stage of an asset’s life cycle, from in-house financing to design, remanufacturing, and final disposition.
With 35 locations across North America, and an 1,855-person team of experts in everything from engineering to logistics and beyond, Custom Truck really lives up to the name.
In April, Nesco Holdings (NYSE: NSCO), in partnership with Platinum Equity LLC, acquired Custom Truck for $1.475 billion and adopted the Custom Truck brand.
“For years we were good competitors,” CEO Fred Ross said. “We’re happy to merge and create a great one-stop shop that allows us to double our rental fleet and increase service for our customers.” The union, which created one of the largest specialty rental firms in North America, has a new tagline as well.
“Better Together” reflects not only the company’s expansion, but also a commitment to working with their customers for mutual success.”
