Custom Truck One Source, Kansas City, Mo., a provider of specialty equipment, parts, tools, accessories and services to the electric utility transmission and distribution, telecommunications and rail markets, has acquired SOS Fleet Services, a full-service repair facility located in Alexandria, La.

The acquisition brings more than 30,000 sq. ft. of space and a team that will enhance Custom Truck’s service footprint in the region. The new Alexandria branch will offer the full breadth of its rental product offering, as well as repair service, to customers in the area, the company said.

The acquisition — along with recently announced 2024 planned branch openings in Casa Grande, Ariz., Sacramento, Calif., and Salt Lake City — will increase Custom Truck’s national footprint to 39 locations from its previous 35.

Ryan McMonagle, Custom Truck One Source CEO, said, “The acquisition of the business of SOS Fleet Services marks an important step in our continued efforts to expand our footprint to better serve our rental fleet and our customers. We are thrilled for the opportunity to expand into Alexandria, a vibrant community that has deep roots in the powerline industry. We are excited to welcome the SOS Fleet Services team to the Custom Truck family and look forward to the invaluable contributions they will make to our customers and our team.”
