Worldwide Equipment will offer East’s full line of dump, flatbed and refuse trailers at 13 of their dealerships located in Kentucky, Tennessee, West Virginia and Virginia.

“East and Worldwide Equipment are about the same age - we start our 45th year in March – and we have a lot in common,” said Worldwide Chief Operating Officer Scott Blevins. “Our desire to grow is great, and we can only achieve this with the help of strong partnerships with companies like East. We do a lot of business in the coalfield areas, and East is a perfect fit with their dump trailers. They also share the same values we do, like a focus on doing what’s best for the customer and his business. We are pretty excited about the quality of trailers, and the quality of people at East. And our customers have been, too.”

“The entire staff at Worldwide Equipment has an incredibly high level of energy and a passion to serve their customers,” said Bill McKenzie, director of dealer development at East. “As an organization, they are extremely customer-knowledgeable, especially when it comes to the needs of the coalfield, and we are excited to have them on the East team.”
