CHARLOTTE, N.C. (May 3, 2019) – Wastequip, the leading North American manufacturer of waste handling equipment, will kick off its 30th anniversary celebration at WasteExpo at the Las Vegas Convention Center from May 6-9 2019. The company will also mark this industry milestone with a series of internal and external events throughout the year.
The anniversary is an excellent time to highlight the company as an engine of progress and driving force for positive change in the waste industry. Attendees are encouraged to see the record number of new products Wastequip will launch at this year’s show. Show attendees are also invited to join Wastequip executives at the Wastequip booth #523 for birthday cake and a champagne toast on Tuesday, May 7th at 12:30 p.m.
Wastequip was created in 1989 to consolidate the highly fragmented and regionalized waste equipment manufacturing sector. The vision was simple: to provide the rapidly growing base of large national haulers a one-stop shop for their most significant needs including standardized equipment, highly durable products, inventory availability, faster delivery and outstanding customer service needed to continue their growth trajectory.
To achieve this goal, the company immediately set out to establish an extensive North American manufacturing and service footprint. Over the next 30 years, the company systematically acquired top companies from tarping systems and vacuum trucks to hoists and carts, including Toter, Galbreath, Pioneer, Mountain Tarp, Cusco, Go To Parts, Accurate, and just two months ago, Amrep, a leading manufacturer of waste truck bodies - uniting them under the Wastequip umbrella. With the broadest line of products on the market today, Wastequip is now comprised of the most well-respected brands in the waste management industry, known for quality, unparalleled service and deep industry knowledge and expertise.
The company will be hosting a series of employee and customer celebrations and will soon unveil a microsite devoted to showcasing Wastequip’s 30-year history (try.wastequip.com/30years) key achievements and plans for the future. Additional events and commemorations are still being finalized and will be announced as they happen.
“As a company that has always been committed to driving progress, it is a true honor for Wastequip to mark this milestone along with the entire waste industry,” said Marty Bryant, Wastequip CEO. “Because many of our technologies were the first of their kinds, we have a rich history of striving for more and better, which we continue today through investing in research and development to create new products and solutions, employing top talent, maintaining the highest product quality standards and partnering with top organizations that add value to our company. Our pause for celebration will be brief, though, because all of us at Wastequip remain focused on the future.”
