Inland acquires Custom Truck Sales
CTS is also the Doepker and Globe Trailer dealer for Manitoba, entering Inland into the market of specialty vocational trailers.
“We chose CTS because our companies hold similar values – providing excellent service and quality products with an emphasis on honesty and integrity,” said Inland’s president and Chief Operating Officer, Bill Currie. “This acquisition is centered on our customers. We understand the importance of having convenient dealerships you can rely on.”
With the addition of six facilities in Regina, Saskatoon, Estevan, Swift Current, Winnipeg, and Brandon, Inland now has 35 locations throughout Western Canada and Southwestern U.S., making them one of the largest truck and equipment dealers in North America.
Between Inland and CTS, there are more than 120 years of industry experience.
“This is an exciting time for Inland as 2019 marks our 70th anniversary,” Currie added. “We have grown from our roots of a small town dealership, but our business strength is still in the relationships we have.”
“We have had a long term relationship with the leaders of Inland for over 50 years,” said Brent Leach, president of CTS. “Like CTS, Inland has consistently won awards for operations, sales, service, parts and leasing. I truly believe that joining another company with such a long track record of success can provide support and opportunities for both customers and employees.”
Moving forward, CTS will be operating under Inland with the same facilities and highly skilled and passionate people currently in place.
