Closing on the second of two asset transactions with Navistar International Corp., Commercial Specialty Truck Holdings, LLC 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.
Based in Cynthiana, Ky., 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 centered in Kentucky and augmented by a Houston satellite facility, the businesses will each operate under McNeilus Cos. veterans.
With 20-plus years in the ready mixed industry, Continental President Frank Busicchia calls the rebranded business “an organization focused on the customer—not just at the point of sale, but throughout the product’s life cycle with aftermarket service and support. 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 for more than 15 years, and will oversee a business that has excelled in integrated, compressed natural gas power solutions.
