Manac and UTT “Here we grow again!”

March 21, 2016:

(SAINT-GEORGES, QC) – Manac Inc. ("Manac"), a North American leader in the design and the manufacture of specialty trailers, and Universal Truck and Trailer expand on their already successful dealership agreement.

Tom Ramsden VP Sales & Marketing from Manac mentions: “We are very excited that UTT has adopted our full line of products. We initially started our dealer agreement with UTT back in 2013 to represent Manac in the Maritimes for our flatbed, forestry and construction lines. We have enjoyed a steady growth, not only in new equipment sales, but just as importantly with the after sales support for Manac customers in the Maritimes. We look forward to working even closer with UTT to ensure customers in the Maritimes have access to all the products Manac has to offer."

Andrew Fisher, Universal Truck and Trailer General Manager adds: “With the impact the exchange rate has on pricing and the quality of the Manac line, we felt the time was right for us to align ourselves fully with Manac, Canada’s largest trailer manufacturer. Working with a Canadian manufacturer like Manac allows us to offer our customers stable pricing and an exceptional product. By picking up the van line and adding this to the other products Manac manufactures, we are able to meet the needs and requirements of almost every trucking company in the Maritimes."

It’s been a very good start and both organizations are looking forward to a long lasting partnership in sales and servicing trailers from the Maritimes region.
