Utility One Source Rebranding As Custom Truck One Source

Kansas City, MO February 27, 2018 – Utility One Source (UOS) announced today a major rebranding effort, changing the company’s name to Custom Truck One Source. The rebrand unifies all company platforms under the Custom Truck One Source name.

As part of the rebrand, the online sales partnership with Housby will also be changing names, now titled Custom Truck One Source Housby Online Sales. This partnership allows Custom Truck One Source the opportunity to provide a complete solution to its customer base not only for equipment purchasing but also for equipment disposal.

Known for customization across a wide range of industries and a vast array of products, Custom Truck One Source is positioned as a true “one stop shop” for its customers. Company officials say the new name sends a clearer message about what the company does.

“Every day, people look to us for innovative solutions—and clear communication about them,” said Fred Ross, CEO. “With our focus on custom in the name, it can work for every industry we serve, whether it’s utility, forestry, rail, construction, propane, oil & gas, or other heavy equipment industries. We think Custom Truck One Source does a good job of that.”

Load King, a trailer and equipment manufacturing subsidiary, will continue to operate under its well-known name, while including Custom Truck One Source in its logo and communications.

The transition to the new name has already begun and becomes official on April 1. Ross and other executives are rolling out the rebrand in communications to all partners and vendors.

“It’s an exciting time for Custom Truck One Source,” said Ryan McMonagle, COO. “Our industries are moving fast, and it takes speed, skill and ingenuity to meet the changes. We think the new brand reflects that and will help keep us headed in the right direction.”
