VHD Equipment Network to Merge into Power Heavy Duty in 2016
By: VIPAR Heavy Duty
VHD Equipment Network was established in 2008 as the first group to offer membership to commercial vehicle truck-mounted equipment distributors in a national marketing group.
VIPAR Heavy Duty acquired the Power Heavy Duty organization in late December 2013 and as a result Power Heavy Duty became part of the growing VIPAR Heavy Duty Family of Companies. The combination of the two groups into one will allow the organization to maximize efficiencies while focusing on growing business with members, supplier partners and their collective customers.
“We are pleased to welcome members of the VHD Equipment Network to Power Heavy Duty, which will help drive more value for our distributors and suppliers,” said Chris Baer, executive vice president of VIPAR Heavy Duty and president of VHD Equipment Network. “This transition will allow us to continue to grow as a group, and help us develop and deliver even more programs and tools for our collective members.”
The Power Heavy Duty network and its members have a strong service and repair focus in addition to serving customers with traditional parts distribution. VHD Equipment Network members share in the service and repair focus with an additional concentration on truck-mounted equipment. The combined group will represent more than 140 distributor companies with over 210 locations coast to coast and more than 175 existing supplier and business service programs.
