March 6, 2019
ATRG recently completed the acquisition of Fleet Trailer Leasing and opened a Meisler location in Louisville Ky.

American Trailer Rental Group (ATRG) is growing.

The company recently completed the acquisition of Fleet Trailer Leasing in Kansas City KS, and opened its newest location under the Meisler Trailer Rental brand in Louisville Ky.

ATRG, a family of companies with a rental fleet approaching 10,000 units, regional operations in Evansville IN, Memphis TN, Walton KY and Cincinnati OH and a network of mechanics and drivers, also operates under the First in Trailer Service (FITS) brand.

“Thanks to the ongoing support of our equity sponsor, Milton Street Capital, and the outstanding work of our associates, we are pursuing an aggressive growth strategy that is rooted in both acquisitions and greenfield pursuits,” said John Brooks, ATRG’s chief executive officer.

“With the acquisition of Fleet, we continue our quest to be the provider of choice serving customers across a multitude of geographies and industries with high-quality storage, cartage and over the road trailers.

“We are excited to join the Kansas City business community and its robust distribution industry. Kansas City is an ideal location for our growth due to its importance to our nation’s economy.”

Brooks said the new Meisler development establishes the company’s presence in the Louisville market and supports the overall economic development of the region.

“With the rich manufacturing and distribution history of the greater Louisville area, we stand ready to serve our customers delivering an unparalleled value proposition built on a foundation of high-quality trailers and world class service,” Brooks said.
