RECENT RELEASESCCC Parts Company Acquires TOR Truck Corporation
CCC Parts Expands its U.S. and Canadian Wholesale Operation of Heavy Duty Truck Parts
MEMPHIS, TNJANUARY 19, 2015
CCC Parts Company (“CCC”), a leading wholesale distributor of heavy-duty truck parts and components, announced today it has completed the purchase of TOR Truck Corporation (“TOR”). TOR is a recognized leader in the wholesale distribution segment, specializing in providing drivetrain solutions and components to remanufacturers and wholesale customers. TOR provides new and remanufactured OEM parts to serve a wide variety of industries, such as the construction, over the road, mining, logging, airport maintenance and material handling sectors.
The experience of the CCC Parts and TOR sales and operations teams, coupled with additional inventory and infrastructure, makes the combination of the two a dominant force in the heavy duty drivetrain marketplace. The two organizations share the same culture of providing world-class customer service, respecting our core supplier partners and treating our associates like family.
With U.S. and Canadian operations and distribution centers in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania; Kansas City, Missouri; Mississauga (Toronto), Ontario and Edmonton, Alberta, this combination complements and expands CCC’s existing service and support capabilities in the U.S. and Canada (Pacific Truck and Canada Powertrain), while also accelerating our growth into new end markets and geographies. The addition of TOR to the CCC family of companies expands the number of wholesale operations and product distribution centers within the U.S. and Canada.
“I’m excited about the future prospects as we welcome TOR to our growing wholesale business. This now positions us as the leading independent wholesale provider of drivetrain solutions and components in North America,” states Mike Zakutny, Senior Vice-President, Wholesale/CCC. “TOR is a well-recognized name in the market with a rich history, and customers will benefit greatly from this merger with substantial service enhancements.”
As part of this acquisition, the TOR name will continue in the marketplace, and the TOR management team, led by Paul Dalton, US Sales Manager; Cindy Junker, US Operations Manager and Don Johansen, GM Canada, will continue to operate as TOR with the added resources from the CCC wholesale team.
“This is a very exciting time for TOR and our customers.” says Pierre Bernard, Chairman, RPM Tech Inc. “We recognize that it’s very important to overachieve, especially in the wholesale business where customers rely on you to sustain and grow their businesses. This merger places a strong emphasis on broader product lines, additional inventory and a stronger distribution network for our customers, which will continue to be supported by the same staff they have grown to depend on for that past 40 years. Tor Truck manufacturing operations will be carried forward by RPM Tech Inc. (the former parent company of Tor Truck Corporation) under the same trade name, Tor.”
