TAG Fleet Division Anticipates Growing Vertical Demand for Work Trucks

2015 Product Lines from TAG Brands Pace Edwards and LEER on Display at NTEA Work Truck Show

ELKHART, Ind. – NTEA Work Truck Show – Booth #2125 – Truck Accessories Group, LLC (TAG) continues to expand its footprint and reputation for innovation in the work truck industry. New products from TAG brands - LEER® and Pace Edwards - are combined with TAG's superior service and engineering prowess to deliver maximum value to national and regional fleets, including vertical work-truck fleets.

In 2015, the company expects significant market growth in vertical industries. Specifically, the service/maintenance category is poised for considerable growth as this sector expands and upgrades its fleets. Pest control, energy and telecommunications fleets are also positioned for substantial investment.

"Fleet budgets have been very tight for the past several years, but this situation appears to be changing," said Jim Blayne, director of fleet sales, TAG Commercial Division. "The combination of new vehicles and a relatively strong economy are creating a window of opportunity to upgrade and expand fleets, especially in vertical industries."

Fleet managers and operators can view TAG's advanced products at this week's NTEA Work Truck Show. U.S.-made caps and covers from TAG brands LEER and Pace Edwards will be on display and demonstrated, including:


    --  Caps - A full line of caps specifically designed for 2015 F-150,

        Colorado and Canyon pickups are now available. Fiberglass caps - models

        100R, 100RCC and 180CC - designed for vehicles of varied sizes and

        multiple uses will be on display.

    --  Tonneaus - A pair of fiberglass tonneau covers for the fleet market have

        also been developed - the 550 and 700. Each model is designed for

        appearance, durability and usability.

Pace Edwards

    --  The Retractable Utility Bed Cover (RUBC) - A workhorse in the service

        industry. Available in both manual and electric-powered models, the RUBC

        is a lightweight hard tonneau delivering secure, convenient storage for

        tools and a wide variety of equipment.

    --  Vertical Door System - An innovative roll-up cargo door option for fleet

        managers, commercial truck up-fitters and truck body manufacturers. The

Manufactured in the U.S. at plants in Elkhart, IN, Woodland, CA, Milton, PA, and Centralia, WA, TAG caps and covers meet exacting standards demanded by fleets. Customers can specify caps and tonneaus that fit their specific requirements, and have the same product built under precise specifications at three different locations. This capability makes TAG uniquely able to fabricate custom-order products, and deliver them more quickly and at less cost than any other company.

In addition to its line of commercial caps and covers, TAG also offers bed-organization products. Bedslide, a slide-out bed storage platform, can accommodate up to 2,000 pounds of equipment. The poly-coated Bedslide deck won't absorb oils or fluids, and is fully adjustable. TAG also offers the DECKED floor-mounted system with pull-out drawers for organizing tools and equipment.
