Manac Inc. (TSX: MA) has received a 700-van order from long-time client Train Trailer Rentals—believed by Manac to be the largest Canadian trailer order ever.

"700 vans, one order, one basic specification is, to the best of my knowledge, the largest Canadian trailer order ever seen by any manufacturer,” said Charles Dutil, President of Manac. “Our ability to secure this business from Train Trailer Rentals is based on years of collaboration and mutual support. It is also a tribute to our employees' commitment to providing a cost competitive product, the solid design of our UltraPlate model and an excellent level of service.”

"After recently amalgamating Westvan and Train Trailer Rentals, this transaction secures our position as a leader in the full-service trailer rental sector in Canada,” said Rick Kloepfer, President of Train Trailer Rentals.  “We were focused on quality and performance in the purchase of these trailers. We're certain the team at Manac will provide comprehensive, leading edge support, which is extremely important to us."

Production of this order will begin during the first quarter of 2014 and is expected to be completed before the end of the third quarter.
