Wastequip, Inc., announced it has purchased specific assets and specific liabilities of McLeskey Enterprises, Inc. dba Cascade Container. Cascade, based in Ridgefield, Washington, manufactures roll-off, front load, rear load containers and roll-off hoists for refuse and recycling providers in Oregon, Washington, California, Alaska, Hawaii and British Columbia.
“Purchasing Cascade will complement our Oregon operations and strengthen Wastequip’s ability to serve West Coast customers, ” said Robert C. Rasmussen, president and chief executive officer of Wastequip, Inc. “This will increase Wastequip’s manufacturing capabilities on the West Coast and will now allow us to not only manufacture a full line of containers, but also start to manufacture the full line of Wastequip compactors, roll–off hoists and hook hoists in the Pacific Northwest.”
Wastequip manufactures a diverse line of waste handling, recycling and material handling equipment, and operates numerous manufacturing facilities throughout North America, all supported by a nationwide service and distributor network.
Wastequip will retain Cascade’s management team and employees, and continue to manufacture waste-handling equipment at the Cascade facility under the name Wastequip Washington. Management expects that this will expand the products and services that we can provide to our customers.
“We found Wastequip to be the perfect partner to carry on the tradition of Cascade,” said Gary McLeskey, president of Cascade Container. He will also become the General Manager of the Wastequip Northwest Division. “Being able to provide the full line of Wastequip products to our customers and all of the West Coast will be a great service to the waste industry.”
