CIMC increased chassis production 53 percent in 2018

Cimc Logo 300x120CIMC Intermodal Equipment announced it had increased its chassis production 53 percent in 2018 compared with 2017. The company says it produced 45,441 chassis last year.

“We were able to obtain this growth based on continued demand from our existing customer base and expanding our dealer network,” says Trevor Ash, vice president, sales and marketing.

CIMC has significantly increased production and sales over the past three years as results have been realized from many operational and organizational improvements as well as a renewed focus on customer demands for chassis design and quality in North America, the company says. The 45,441 units produced in 2018 at CIMC’s South Gate, Calif., and Emporia, Va., facilities is record output for the company.

“There is no single definitive reason for our success in 2018. The record number of chassis built is due to many initiatives that were started back in 2016. Our chassis are the highest quality with the best total cost of ownership results for our customers,” says Frank Sonzala, president and CEO.

“Another reason for our success is the exceptional quality of our employees. With an employee-centric culture and world class products we will continue to build our market share in North America,” Sonzala says.
