Kansas City, Missouri, January 24, 2018 – Custom Truck and Equipment/Utility One Source (CTE) and Terex Utilities today announced a strategic partnership to better serve the investor-owned utility (IOUs), electric contractor, and forestry segments in the U.S. The two industry-leading companies are teaming up to provide an enhanced commercial offering which will include increased availability to equipment packages, improved delivery cycle times, expanded product lines, flexible financing solutions, and cradle-to-grave fleet support, including asset disposal.

In the expanded alliance, Terex will leverage CTE’s industry expertise, end-user relationships, engineering capabilities and installation expertise to deliver enhanced products and services to IOUs and electric utility contractors. In addition to its significant rental inventory, CTE will grow on-hand and customizable equipment packages available for sale, and leverage high-volume chassis and body shipments to ensure timely delivery of custom orders. Expanded inventory will be available through CTE’s network of 24 locations throughout the U.S., and will include new and existing Terex Utilities product lines. CTE already provides the chassis and installation on more than 6,000 trucks through 11 state-of-the-art installation facilities nationwide. CTE will pursue continued expansion of its installation capacity through acquisitions and organic growth. CTE will respond to the ongoing needs of the market with equipment innovations by expanding Load King’s portfolio of manufactured products.

CTE’s broad product offering, enhanced by its growing partnership with Terex Utilities, makes it a top supplier to the electric utility markets throughout North America. Customers will benefit from CTE’s robust portfolio of equipment solutions, aftermarket parts, maintenance and service through a 24/7 call-in-center manned by in-house technicians, equipment remounting and remanufacturing, trade-ins, and liquidity of unusable equipment through CTE’s partnership with Housby Auctions. Customers can also leverage flexible, customized leasing and financing solutions through Custom Truck Capital.

“Electric utility contractors throughout the U.S. rely on us to deliver mission critical equipment solutions that ensure they work more efficiently,” said Fred Ross, CEO of CTE. “I am delighted to announce this new partnership with Terex Utilities, and am certain it will allow us to better serve investor-owned utilities and electric utility contractors.”

“We carefully evaluated the electric utility segment and are pleased to announce an expanded partnership with CTE that complements our existing comprehensive dealer and rental network,” said Clint Weber, General Manager of Terex Utilities. “We are committed and engaged with our partners to listen, understand and quickly provide innovative solutions for electric utility customers. This partnership reflects that commitment.”
