Ex-Navistar business rebranded Continental Mixer Solutions

Source: Commercial Specialty Truck Holdings, LLC, Houston

Closing on the second of two asset transactions with Navistar International Corp., Specialty Truck Holdings has established a new identity for its concrete truck brand, Continental Mixer Solutions, LLC, paralleling the creation of EZ-Pack Refuse Hauling Solutions, LLC after the first deal.

Specialty Truck Holdings will expand product offerings, manufacturing capacity, and its distribution network, affording customers “unparalleled access to technologies across both market segments.” With production in Houston and Cynthiana, Ky., the businesses will each operate under McNeilus Cos. veterans.

“I’m excited to work with an organization that is focused on the customer—not just at the point of sale, but throughout the product’s life cycle with aftermarket service and support,” says newly appointed Continental President Frank Busicchia, who has 20-plus years in the ready mixed industry. “We will continue to support customers with a strong manufacturing base in Houston, as well as with expanded capacity in [Kentucky].”

His EZ-Pack counterpart, Matthew Walter, has worked with truck bodies and heavy-duty chassis for more than 15 years, and will oversee a business that has excelled in integrated, compressed natural gas power solutions.
