American Trailer Rental Group Completes Advantage Trailer Acquisition
MAR 3, 2020 - 6:35 am
American Trailer Rental Group has expanded to Texas with the acquisition of Dallas-based Advantage Trailer Leasing. This is the fourth acquisition by ATRG since Milton Street formed the group in June 2017.
“Following this acquisition, our customers now have access to our fleet approaching 13,000 units as well as a network of highly skilled mechanics and drivers,” said John Brooks, CEO of American Trailer Rental Group.
Advantage Trailer Leasing serves Texas-based manufacturers, warehouse operators, distributors and logistics companies. Their “customer first” focus dovetails naturally into the culture at ATRG.
“We at Advantage are excited to join the ATRG family. My brother Garrett and I were impressed with the vision and execution of the team at ATRG. We are looking forward to actively helping ATRG continue to grow,” said Richard Vilven, CEO of Advantage Trailer.
“As business owners with over 35 years’ experience in the trailer leasing business, Richard and I were delighted to find a group that allows us to maintain operations independently, retain all of our employees and continue the excellent service that has been a vital part of making us who we are today,” said Garrett Vilven, shareholder at Advantage Trailer. “As part of the ATRG family we are better capitalized, have greater access to high quality equipment and a larger customer base to serve.”
