Acela Trucks Heading To Canada

Acela Truck Co. and Roughrider International have announced a strategic partnership to provide Acela Monterra on- and off-highway trucks in Canada, thereby expanding Acela’s distribution footprint and Roughrider’s product offering.

“It’s a natural marriage for Acela and Roughrider to combine forces in Canada,” said David Ronsen, president, Acela Truck Co., Belgrade, Mont.  “Acela offers the most capable truck chassis for the most extreme job sites in the world and Roughrider excels in selling, leasing, renting and servicing specialized and complimentary products and services throughout Western Canada to a host of clients operating in some of the most demanding worksites. Together, Acela and Roughrider will provide mining, pipeline, powerline and oil and gas operators with a suite of unique products designed to significantly reduce operating cost, enhance jobsite access and equipment uptime.”

 Located in Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada, Roughrider specializes in creating professional, scalable energy solutions.

 “Roughrider is always looking for new products that can help our customers fill their unique requirements more efficiently and increase productivity. The Acela Monterra fills multiple fleet requirements that enable us to increase our clients’ competitive advantage,” said James Secord, COO for Roughrider.  “Given the current Canadian oil prices, the two companies are positioned to offer worldclass, low maintenance, high availability trucks that outperform other wheeled vehicles, saving operators thousands.  Whether we’re renting or selling, our clients trust us to bring them the best-in-market solutions and our partnership with Acela allows us to provide extreme value and cost savings.”
