Manitex International, Inc., a leading international provider of cranes and specialized industrial equipment, today announced the appointment of Idaho-based Cobalt Truck Equipment LLC to handle knuckle boom distribution for the states of Idaho, Washington, Nevada and Texas.
Founded in 1995, Cobalt Truck Equipment started with 12 employees and a single location in Meridian, Idaho. It has since moved to a newer and larger corporate headquarters in Nampa, Idaho, and expanded to three additional locations in Spokane, Las Vegas, and San Antonio, with over 100 employees. In addition to building custom, fully-equipped trucks for its clients, Cobalt keeps an extensive inventory of built-up, work-ready truck packages available for immediate delivery. Construction, utility, and heavy equipment clients have come to trust Cobalt Truck Equipment for quality mechanics trucks, lube trucks, utility bodies, platforms, vans, and more.
Sam Rooke, PM Product Manager for Manitex International said, “We are excited to bring Cobalt Truck into our team of knuckle boom dealers, and begin initial shipments before the end of 2017. We are pleased with Cobalt’s extensive knowledge of the knuckle boom market and we look forward to working with them to provide first class support to their clients throughout the sales process and beyond.”
Dan Duncan, Owner & CEO of Cobalt Truck Equipment added, “Everyone at Cobalt is thrilled to add Manitex’s full line of articulating boom trucks to our equipment portfolio. Manitex is committed to supporting the full line of articulating cranes in North America and that can only benefit us and our customers in the long term. We are looking forward to our relationship developing even further and our customers reaping the benefits.”
