GWT absorbed the Oklahoma-based trailer dealership in its 10th acquisition since the company began in 1997

Great Western Trailer (GWT) has acquired Southwest Trailer & Equipment, LLC. Southwest Trailer & Equipment distributes trailers for a broad range of manufacturers including Transcraft Trailer Corporation, Construction Trailer Specialists, Holden Trailers, Strick Trailers, LLC, and Nuttall Trailers.

"We are excited to have completed the acquisition as it expands our reach into the Southwest, an area we had targeted for growth," said Jeremy Amen, CEO of Great Western Trailer.  "We are also looking forward to enhancing Southwest Trailer & Equipment's service offerings to include the finance, leasing and rental solutions we provide at our other 8 locations across the United States."

Previously, Great Western Trailer acquired certain assets of Pacific Truck & Trailer, Quality Trailer Sales, Trinity Trailer Sales, All Points Trailer, and Patriot Trailer Sales. Southwest Trailer & Equipment marks GWT's sixth acquisition in as many years.

"Great Western Trailer will continue to pursue acquisitions as a way to fulfill its long-term plan of building out a larger geographic footprint," said Seth Wilson, a managing partner of Headhaul Capital and the vice chairman of Great Western Trailer.  "We believe that as we develop a larger network of locations we will be better positioned to provide creative trailer solutions for our customers."
