Great Western Leasing and Sales (GWLS), based in Irvine CA, recently acquired All Points Equipment Leasing, which provides trailer rental, new and used trailer sales, repair and maintenance service and over-the-counter parts sales in the Detroit metropolitan area.
In addition, All Points, based in Dearborn MI, owns and operates a fleet of mobile service trucks to provide repair and maintenance over-the-road and at customer locations. All Points distributes trailers from many different manufacturers, including Manac Trailer USA.
“Our acquisition of All Points Equipment represents our first expansion into the Midwest, a large and attractive market for the flatbed and open-deck trailers in which we specialize,” stated Sean Norton, founder and chief executive officer of Great Western Leasing. “In addition, All Points has a more significant presence in the dry van trailer rental market, which will add to the portfolio of services we can offer to our customers.”
James T. Veit, All Point’s owner, says the company has served Detroit and Eastern Michigan for almost 30 years.
“I am looking forward to joining the broad Great Western network, which I believe will be an excellent fit for our employees and customers,” he said.
Seth Wilson, a managing partner for Headhaul Capital and vice chairman of Great Western Leasing, called the acquisition another positive development for GWLS.
“Over the last three years, GWLS has grown from three locations to eight and has more than doubled its trailer rental and leasing fleet,” Wilson said. “As Great Western’s geographic footprint continues to grow, we believe we can become a more important supplier for our customers as we can serve them in multiple markets.”
