Feb. 5, 2020
Industrial Truck & Equipment’s acquisition of Sunbelt Waste Equipment bolsters support for Florida customers

Heil, one of the nation’s largest refuse truck body manufacturers, recently grew its nationwide dealer network with Industrial Truck & Equipment’s acquisition of Sunbelt Waste Equipment.

Sunbelt Waste, along with sister Heil dealer Tampa Crane and Body, are part of the Industrial Truck & Equipment family, which supports all Florida customer operations. Sunbelt offers products and provides parts and services from Heil, Marathon Equipment, 3rd Eye, Curotto-Can, and Bayne Premium Lift Systems—all part of Environmental Solutions Group (ESG).

Heil is part of ESG and Dover.

“Both Sunbelt and Tampa Crane have played key roles over the past years supporting refuse haulers in the state of Florida,” said Dave Combs, ESG’s director of sales. “Given the ever-changing marketplace, especially within Florida, this acquisition ensures that ESG customers will continue to be well-served with the very best in products, parts and service.

“We’re looking forward to the positive results of this acquisition.”

Sunbelt’s Pompano Beach headquarters features three full-service bays, a fully supported parts and service department, two mobile service trucks to support road calls and two parts delivery trucks.

“Sunbelt Waste Equipment has been part of South Florida’s landscape for more than 20 years and we’re excited to have them join the Industrial Truck & Equipment team to take what we have to offer waste haulers to the next level,” said Sunbelt’s new president, Robby Dehart.

“In the waste hauling market, it’s all about customer-facing service and support. When a truck is down, we want to be able to react quickly and effectively. We knew with Sunbelt there is a sturdy foundation based on delivering value to end-users. Now, we’re investing money, time and materials to grow this business to support the next generation of waste haulers, including the expanding presence of large national fleets.”
