Beaver Valley Truck Center of Leetsdale, Pa., has been named an authorized distributor for Heil distributor network

Beaver Valley Truck Center of Leetsdale, Pa., has been named an authorized distributor for Heil Environmental, Parts Central and Bayne Premium Lift Systems throughout northeastern Ohio, western Pennsylvania and northern West Virginia.

As an authorized distributor, the company will sell and service Heil's full line of refuse and recycling vehicles, Heil Certified OEM Parts, Parts Inc. Aftermarket Parts by Heil, and Bayne hydraulic cart lifters.

Located just outside of Pittsburgh, Beaver Valley Truck Center has provided service and support for trucks in the region since 1980. It is an authorized Galbreath distributor, as well as a parts and service dealer for International Truck and Engine Corp. and Mack Trucks.

"It is an honor to welcome Beaver Valley Truck Center to the Heil team," says Bob McHugh, Heil director of North American sales. "Beaver Valley Truck Center is uniquely positioned to provide our mutual customers with reliable service and support for their refuse collection vehicles' bodies and chassis, all in a single location."

Although this is the company's initial entry into selling refuse and recycling vehicles, Beaver Valley Truck Center has been servicing rear loaders, front loaders and side loaders for years, according to Jim August, president. They also added 22 years of Heil refuse and recycling equipment experience to the sales team by hiring industry veteran Ken Defino as sales manager.

August and his team considered several refuse collection vehicle manufacturers before choosing Heil.

"We felt Heil was the better fit because of the quality of its products," August explains. "We need to sell the products that our customers want to buy and that will provide them with increased productivity and profitability."
