Ground breaking ceremony for new Atlantic Canada trailer sales and service location held on June 6, 2019
Moncton, June 6, 2019 — Wabash Canada, one of Canada’s leading and most innovative commercial trailer companies, has officially begun the construction of its new Sales and Service location at 195 Fernette Avenue in Moncton, NB.
The new location will be home to both the Wabash National trailer dealership and their industry-leading fleet maintenance business, GoRight®, to support local and national fleets throughout the life of their trailers.
Wabash Canada is the exclusive dealership in Eastern Canada for trailers manufactured by Wabash National, which recently awarded Wabash Canada with its prestigious 5-Star Ambassador Award for outstanding Dealership performance for the fourth year in a row. Wabash Canada is proud to represent Wabash National, the design and innovation leader of transport trailers in North America. Demonstrating Wabash National’s continued market-leading innovation, Wabash Canada will be displaying the innovative new award-winning MSC (Modular Structural Technology) reefer trailer at the APTA truck show this weekend.
Partnering with Wabash Canada, GoRight® will also be expanding in Moncton. GoRight®, the industry-leading fleet maintenance management business in Canada, manages maintenance for over 6,000 trailers, employing nearly 100 technicians. GoRight® expertly manages maintenance for all makes of trailers, assisting and outsourcing fleet maintenance operations to ensure regulatory compliance, cost management, and driving cost reduction strategies that lower vehicle life cycle costs.
Over 10 full-time trailer sales and service positions will be created in Moncton as a result of the company’s expansion, providing a boost to the local economy. The construction project itself will create an additional 25 jobs, and is expected to be completed in December 2019. The facility will host 4 double wide service bays on over 4 acres, including a truck wash bay and full width overhead crane for bulk tanks and truck bodies, facilitating maintenance for all makes and types of trailers and light duty truck repairs. The in-house parts inventory will also support the expanding GoRight® mobile maintenance business in Atlantic Canada.
“The ground breaking at our newest location in Moncton represents an exciting additional milestone in the growth of the company,” said Brent Larson, CEO of Wabash Canada and GoRight®. “We are very excited about our investment in Moncton and Atlantic Canada. We will be able to better serve our customers and our rapidly-growing base of Wabash trailers domiciled in the region. And with the GoRight® business under the same roof, we can confidently deliver on our promise to provide warranty and industry-leading fleet maintenance and after-sales service and support for our customers.”
The sod-turning ceremony was held on June 6th 2019, with notable attendees including Moncton Mayor Dawn Arnold, Wabash Canada and GoRight® CEO Brent Larson, Director of Sales for Atlantic Canada Steve Melanson, GoRight® President Shawn Lacey, and Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing Neil Christensen.
