E-Z Pack Manufacturing, a maker of refuse truck bodies and a supplier of OEM parts for waste vehicles, announced that Waste Equipment and Parts is its new dealer in Florida, and that Norwood Equipment also has joined the company’s dealer network, adding locations in Phoenix and Tucson, Ariz.; Houston and Austin, Texas; and Atlanta.
Waste Equipment and Parts, located in Tampa, is a new company, but with a veteran management team. The president of the company, Dave Lance, has more than 30 years of sales and management experience in the waste equipment industry. Most recently, Lance was the municipal marketing manager for RDK Truck Sales. In addition to E-Z Pack refuse trucks, Waste Equipment and Parts will offer roll-off equipment, street sweepers, grapple equipment, vacuum trucks, carts and containers from other manufacturers. The company is a full-service dealership, with sales, service and parts support for the brands they represent.
“We are excited about having a person of Dave Lance’s caliber on our team, with his new business in Florida,” says Jim Rogers, E-Z Pack’s vice president of sales and marketing. “E-Z Pack has a strong presence in Florida, and Waste Equipment and Parts is a perfect fit for our long-term growth strategy.”
Norwood Equipment represents a variety of manufacturers with equipment lines that include street sweepers, dump bodies, vacuum trucks, roll-off hoists, compactors, asphalt equipment, snow and ice removal equipment, and a broad range of aftermarket equipment for truck chassis. Locations are full-service dealers, offering sales, service and parts support for the brands they represent. Headquartered in Phoenix, Norwood Equipment is an affiliate of Vanguard Truck Centers, which owns and operates full-service commercial truck centers across the country.
“The addition of Norwood Equipment to the E-Z Pack dealer network strengthens our commitment to provide superior representation for the E-Z Pack product line,” Rogers says. “Norwood brings five new dealer locations into the E-Z Pack family, with a proven track record of excellence and customer support.”
