Colorado Company to Become Full-Service Semi Trailer Business

DENVER, May 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Prime Trailer Leasing, a leading provider for the rental and leasing of semi trailers, announced today it has purchased OnRamp Trailer Services from CR England, the largest refrigerated transportation company in the world. 

"The acquisition of OnRamp is a significant step toward better serving our customers in the semi trailer segment of the transportation industry," said Wes Gardner, CEO and founder of Prime Trailer Leasing. "We will now add the strong brand recognition of Wabash National, Transcraft, East, Manac, Trail King and Construction Trailer Specialists along with our existing trailer lines."

As part of the acquisition, the company is dropping the word "Leasing" from its name and will be known simply as Prime Trailer. "We are now able to offer parts and service for our customers," Gardner said. "We've added 29 full-service bays at our Salt Lake City location and 12 bays in Reno to Prime Trailer's existing operations."

OnRamp's President Travis ("TJ") Johnson said, "We are very excited about this partnership and working with Wes and the Prime Trailer team. We know they are a company of integrity and strong values, have a real vision for growth, and treat their customers extremely well."

This acquisition will strengthen Prime Trailer's market presence, enhance its competitive position and enable better service for its customers. "Our customers deliver 'goods' while our employees also deliver good - through unsurpassed service and commitment to our customers. But what really excites us is serving our neighbors through a wide range of community investments," added Gardner. "Our culture of 'delivering good' builds lifetime relationships with all our stakeholders and the people in the communities where we operate. It's what sets us apart in the industry. Relationships matter."
