Wastequip buys Wastebuilt

Wastequip has acquired Wastebuilt Environmental Solutions, LLC.

Based in Bolingbrook, Illinois, Wastebuilt operates 12 facilities in major metropolitan areas throughout the U.S. and builds parts for refuse bodies, chassis, containers, hoses and fittings. It was founded in 2012, and offers same-day delivery in 11 metropolitan areas with one- to two-day shipping to most U.S. customers.

Going forward, Wastequip’s Go To Parts brand will be discontinued and will operate under the Wastebuilt brand.

Wastebuilt will continue to operate as its own entity, reporting directly to Chris Nicolazzo, who previously served as Wastequip’s vice-president of operations for tarps and parts and has now been named president of that division.

Parts catalog

The acquisition of Wastebuilt broadens Wastequip’s parts catalog, technical support and distribution in key markets across the U.S. The acquisition also allows Wastequip to offer expanded parts coverage from a network of facilities nationwide and across six parts families: refuse bodies; fluid conveyance; containers; chassis; MRO and safety; and, automated side loader arms.

“We are excited to welcome the Wastebuilt team to the Wastequip family of brands,” said Marty Bryant, chief executive officer, Wastequip.

“The addition of Wastebuilt aligns with our strategy of pairing the industry’s top brands – like Galbreath, Amrep, Pioneer and Toter – with an expanded parts catalog and distribution network to provide a one-stop shop for the waste industry. Strengthening our parts offering, along with the continued expansion of our Wastequip WRX service network, provides customers with a single, convenient and reliable source from equipment to parts to service.”

Wastequip’s brands include Wastequip, Wastequip WRX, Toter, Galbreath, Pioneer, Mountain Tarp, Amrep, ConFab, ContainerPros and Accurate.
