PRINCETON, N.J., March 16, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Continuing a commitment to increasing the supply of chassis following a surge of imports and elevated equipment dwell time, TRAC Intermodal is increasing its fleet of 40-foot chassis through a partnership with American Made Chassis (AMC), an alliance of LB Steel and Integrated Industries.
TRAC and AMC representatives discussed the partnership and unveiled new chassis manufactured through the alliance at an event this morning at the AMC plant in Dixmoor, IL. Attendees included:
  • Val Noel, EVP and Chief Operations Officer at TRAC Intermodal

  • Joe Perez, President at Integrated Industries
  • Frank Perez, Vice President at Integrated Industries

Under this agreement, LB Steel is building frames for the new chassis and Integrated Industries is blasting, painting and installing all equipment components at its Dixmoor, IL facility. TRAC’s procurement of these chassis aligns with its strategic objective of partnering with key manufacturers in North America to build high-quality chassis. The AMC chassis capacity will complement TRAC’s core manufacturer capacity.
