Strehl LLC has purchased the assets of Rocketail LLC the trailer aerodynamic component manufacturer reports.
“We are extremely pleased to welcome such an outstanding product into our suite of aerodynamic solutions for the trucking industry," Strehl President Richard Senatro said. "Through exhaustive research and determination, the team at Rocketail successfully developed a tail-aero system that finally delivers on the elusive promise of a practical solution for reducing drag at the rear of the trailer. Rocketail will transform the space.”
Strehl will combine its TrailerBlade line with Rocketail and other products in the Strehl pipeline to form FleetAero. As the name implies, FleetAero is comprehensive suite of products designed to optimize aerodynamic performance, thereby reducing fuel costs and lowering carbon emissions. FleetAero products will be offered both as a customized package or individual components, according to a fleet’s specific needs and equipment.
“Fleets are much more sophisticated about aerodynamics than they were ten years ago, or even five years ago. They want complete, customized solutions that will fit their operations and achieve their goals for both fuel savings and carbon reduction. Consolidating our brands under the FleetAero umbrella reflects our commitment to helping our customers achieve these goals,” Senatro added. “This year has brought tremendous changes. Even more are coming soon.
“With the addition of Rocketail and the formation of FleetAero, our approach will remain the same: offer rugged components designed for the real-world and back up our products’ performance with hard data and outstanding service.”
