Acela Truck Company and Roughrider International recently announced a strategic partnership to provide Acela Monterra extreme-duty, high-mobility trucks to the Canadian market. The two industry-leading companies are partnering to offer North America’s most capable on- and off-highway trucks to Canadian markets, expanding Acela Truck Company’s growing distribution footprint and Roughrider’s growing product offerings.

“It’s a natural marriage for Acela and Roughrider to combine forces in Canada,” says David Ronsen, President of Acela Truck Company. “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 & gas operators with a suite of unique products designed to significantly reduce operating cost, enhance job site access and equipment uptime.”

“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, Roughrider’s COO. “Given the current Canadian oil prices, the two companies are positioned to offer world class, low maintenance, high availability trucks that outperform other wheeled vehicles, saving operators thousands. The productivity and accessibility capabilities of the Monterra, combined with its flexibility in range of mission application is truly unmatched. Monterra operators quickly understand that they run circles around other truck chassis in our extreme Canadian environments. 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.”
