American Trailer Rental Group (ATRG) has opened a new location under its First in Trailer Service (FITS) brand in Columbus, Ohio.
Recently, ATRG has been working with equity sponsor Milton Street Capital to pursue an aggressive growth strategy that is rooted in both acquisitions and greenfield pursuits. The new Columbus facility falls into the latter category.
Located at 3700 Lacon Road Hilliard, Ohio 43026, the operation will be led by Keith Plaul. Plaul is a well-respected executive in the transportation and logistics industry having most recently served as general manager of the company’s Nashville operation. He brings with him a wealth of local market knowledge and experience that will be vital for the continued growth of the FITS product line in the Columbus market, the company says.
ATRG CEO John Brooks adds, “With the tremendous economic expansion as well as the rich manufacturing and distribution history of the greater Columbus area we stand ready to serve our customers delivering an unparalleled value proposition built on a foundation of high-quality trailers and world class service.”
