Sacramento CA-based Western Pacific Products Inc will immediately begin selling Heil semi tanks, tank trucks/pull trailer combinations, and pumper trucks, general manager Michael Darby said.
Steve Bishop will begin selling new and used tanks in Northern California (Fresno CA to the Oregon border) full time starting June 1, 2009. He will work closely with Randy Miller, West Coast regional sales manager for Heil. Bishop has been with Western Pacific Products since 1993.
Founded in 1985, Western Pacific Products distributes a variety of tank, truck, and trailer parts and also sells new and used pneumatic, petroleum, chemical, and vacuum tank trucks. The company operates parts warehouses in West Sacramento CA, Portland OR, Signal Hill (Los Angeles) CA, Dallas-Fort Worth TX, and Chico CA. The California and Texas locations sell new and used tanks from Heil, Stephens Pneumatic, Troxell Trailer Manufacturing, Viking Guppie's, and Amthor International.
Western Pacific has four drive-through bays at its West Sacramento facility for the new assembly division and has hired additional employees. More workers will be hired as demand for equipment and repair grows, Darby said.
