Commercial Vehicle Solutions Network (CVSN) has announced that the Westrans Co. is now a member of the association.
Westrans, with headquarters in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, is a leading remanufacturer and supplier of parts for commercial trucks and trailers, passenger cars and trucks, agricultural equipment and heavy-duty industrial equipment. Westrans also has branches in Regina, Saskatchewan and Thunder Bay, Ontario.
Since starting as a transmission and differential rebuilder in 1967, the company says it has expanded its operations to become true brake and powertrain specialists, powered by some of the most experienced staff in the industry. Westrans complements its remanufacturing work with a fully-stocked parts department, as well as a 14-bay service center at the Winnipeg location. Westrans offers an extensive parts delivery service to Winnipeg, Regina, Thunder Bay and surrounding areas, as well as a 24-hour emergency parts answering service.
Westrans CEO John Williams said, “Westrans has joined CVSN to support its efforts to help the independent distributor in the heavy-duty industry grow their business, to network with other key industry leaders and take advantage of the CVSN training and best practices education opportunities.”
CVSN Executive Vice President Angelo Volpe added, “We are very excited to have Westrans, one of the top distributor companies in Canada, join the impressive list of CVSN distributor members. A strong membership base is key to helping CVSN continue its fight for the independent commercial vehicle distributor on key legislative issues like Right to Repair and continue to provide training programs.”
CVSN congratulates Westrans as the company celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2017. Westrans also is an HDA Truck Pride shareholder and member of HDAC in Canada.
