Expertec acquires Work Truck Solutions, announces first U.S. expansion in Gilbert, Arizona


In a strategic move to bolster its presence in the United States, Expertec (Edmonton, Alberta) announced its expansion to Gilbert, Arizona aligned with its acquisition of Work Truck Solutions, a well-regarded company currently located in Greater Phoenix. This investment establishes Expertec's first location in the U.S.

For almost 20 years, Expertec has been a key player in the Canadian vehicle upfitting industry, known for its commitment to quality, innovation and building meaningful relationships with customers as trusted advisors. The acquisition of Work Truck Solutions, a former customer of Expertec, underscores the strong, long-standing relationship between the two companies. The shared commitment to high-quality service and customer satisfaction made this acquisition a natural progression.

Effective immediately, Work Truck Solutions will be rebranded and operate under the Expertec name in Gilbert. This rebranding aims to ensure a seamless transition for customers and to unify the brand under a single, strong identity. Together, they will further commit to their service philosophy: Where Partnership meets Precision; Delivering Solutions with Innovative Excellence.

“This acquisition represents a significant step forward in Expertec’s growth strategy,” stated Wes Bond, the Managing Director of Expertec. “By integrating Work Truck Solutions into the Expertec family, we are not only expanding our footprint in the U.S. market but also enhancing our ability to provide better service to our existing U.S. customers. The opportunities this acquisition brings in terms of expedited lead times and expanded offerings are truly exciting.”

Work Truck Solutions has earned a reputation for its dedication to customer satisfaction and high-quality upfitting services. The collaborations between the two companies are expected to facilitate a smooth integration process and deliver enhanced value to customers.

Expertec chose to open its first U.S. location in Gilbert after considering many other cities in the western U.S. and evaluating economic and social factors in each region. Ultimately, the strong support from key vendors and the strategic advantages of Greater Phoenix made it the optimal choice for Expertec's expansion.

“I am so pleased that Expertec, a Canadian business, selected Gilbert’s newest employment industrial development, the Gateway Commerce Center, as its expansion location within the U.S.,” said Gilbert Mayor Brigette Peterson. “I know Gilbert and this region remain committed to supporting strategic business alignments with Expertec serving as the latest addition to our expanding manufacturing industry.”

This acquisition and expansion not only solidifies Expertec’s standing in the North American market but also positions it as one of the few companies capable of fully servicing multinational clients. Customers can expect a broader range of services, efficient lead times, and the same high standards of quality and trusted advisory that both Expertec and Work Truck Solutions are known for.

“With Expertec entering Greater Phoenix and establishing its first U.S. location, companies will have access to greater efficiency, functionality and style in their fleets,” said Greater Phoenix Economic Council President & CEO Chris Camacho. “The Canadian leader is a welcome addition to a region that offers excellent connectivity to the western United States and Mexico, and a booming industry base that perfectly complements the company’s innovative upfitting solutions.”
