Jerr-Dan, an Oshkosh Corp. company, has added TEC Equipment as a distributor of its complete line of towing and recovery vehicles.
Jerr-Dan is the single brand leader in the towing and recovery industry with distributors across the United States and in six continents, the company boasts. TEC Equipment, headquartered in Portland, Ore., is a leading dealer of Mack, Volvo, Hino, and Isuzu trucks, as well as Wabash and MAC trailers.
“We’re pleased that TEC Equipment is investing in the Jerr-Dan brand to provide our shared customers outstanding service and support,” said Hal Wyatt, director of aftermarket support at Jerr-Dan. “TEC is an excellent example of the commitment our distributors have to delivering a premium experience and meeting all of our customers’ towing and recovery needs.”
Founded in 1976, TEC Equipment has grown from a single used truck center in Portland to 28 truck and trailer dealership locations with 1,200 employees across Washington, Oregon, California, Nevada and Arizona.
In addition to new and used truck and trailer sales, TEC provides full-service truck and trailer support through parts, service, financing, insurance leasing and rentals. Towing and recovery equipment is a new business area for TEC, one that company leaders say will be welcomed by customers.
“At TEC, our customers’ needs are central to how we operate. They asked for towing and recovery products, and we’re happy to partner with Jerr-Dan to deliver those to them,” said Jeff Stevens, vice president – trailer operations at TEC Equipment. “We’re excited to expand this area of our business and continue to exceed our customers’ expectations.”
Currently, four TEC dealerships support Jerr-Dan in the Northern California market with upfits performed exclusively at its Stockton/Lathrop location.
Jerr-Dan continues to place an emphasis on distributor network growth to provide customers with a high level of support, the company says, and today has over 60 locations throughout North America and 15 internationally.
