Wastequip, headquartered in Charlotte, N.C., says it is realigning its business to better serve customers in the waste and recycling industries. The reorganization is designed to allow the company to provide greater focus on individual product lines and brands.

Wastequip will remain the corporate parent for all products and brands. However, the company has been organized into the following stand-alone business units:

  • Containers, including steel and environmental containers as well as hoppers;
  • Mobile products, including tarps, hoists and vacuum trucks;
  • Plastics, including all Toter brand carts and containers; and
  • Technical, including compactors, balers and intermodals.

The reorganization will allow each division the flexibility to respond to needs relevant to their customers and the markets in which they compete, according to Wastequip.

Wastequip adds that customers will benefit by having focused sales representatives by product line and additional inside support staff for faster response times with quotes and other inquiries. Manufacturing facilities will be aligned by division to ensure that products are manufactured to the same standards each time, regardless of the facility in which they are produced, the company says. Additionally, each facility will maintain inventory for faster customer response.

“We listened to our customers and to our employees to ensure that this is the right move for us,” says Marty Bryant, CEO of Wastequip. “Wastequip has the top brands and products in the industry, and this new structure ensures we don’t lose focus on either. I am excited about the realignment of our business and the personal customer approach we offer that is not available from anyone else in the industry,” Bryant adds.

Wastequip operates a network of 27 manufacturing facilities. Brands operating under the Wastequip name include Wastequip, Toter, Galbreath, Pioneer, Accurate, Cusco, Mountain Tarp and Parts Place.
