Vipar Heavy Duty announced that East Coast Truck and Trailer Inc. of Brockton, Mass., is the newest stockholder to join its network of distributors. East Coast Truck and Trailer, led by its president and owner Don Cupples, provides southeastern Massachusetts and Cape Cod with truck parts and trailer equipment for medium- to heavy-duty trucks.
The company – which has an additional branch in Pembroke, Mass. – exited the service business in 2000 and now focuses entirely on parts distribution with five delivery vehicles. East Coast Truck and Trailer has 12 employees, including two outside salesmen.
“We are pleased to welcome East Coast Truck and Trailer to the Vipar Heavy Duty family,” said Jim Pennig, vice president of business development for Vipar Heavy Duty. “Don Cupples and his team work hard to provide outstanding service to a highly dense urban population as they concentrate on fleets within a 30-mile radius of their two stores.”
